Agora Gallery is pleased to present The Saturated Palette, a riotous new group exhibition that explores an array of intense visual expressions. All ten artists featured here employ an extreme of some sort, be it tone, shape, texture – or, more frequently, a combination of several. Color is of course the main player, and the exhibition’s large range offers examples of how it is deployed to depict people, places, and ideas. We see it in bright, playful bursts, but also in more unexpected ways. In some works, the standout color is used only sparingly in the frame; in others, it serves to highlight an element of the subject matter, or even to underline the artist’s larger idea about pattern or line. With oil, pastels, and encaustic, several artists show us how a canvas can include only subtle or darker colors that nevertheless completely infuse the image. In this exhibition, techniques are taken to their limit and the curious are rewarded.
The Saturated Palette opens March 10, 2017 and runs through March 30, 2017 with an opening reception on Thursday, March 16 from 6-8 pm. Admission is free.
