Description: The September exhibitions at Agora Gallery, NYC are sure to get the season off to a good start, with a dazzling collective exhibition and a solo exhibition that will captivate and delight. In Masters of the Imagination: The Latin American Fine Art Exhibition, talented Latin American artists explore the diverse and thrilling boundaries of their experiences, their heritage and their minds. The result is a collection that captures something fundamental about the nature of contemporary life, while also imparting a vision of possibility and insights that have an impact both intellectually and emotionally. A portion of the proceeds from the sales of work in this collection will be donated to From Here to Haiti, an organization which brings help and hope to the people of Haiti. Vanida Amiot's solo exhibition displays all the verve and vivacity that abstract art can possess, as the audience is swept along and immersed in images that subtly balance delicacy with vivid effects. Intriguing and imaginative, these works speak to the deepest levels of our minds, encouraging us to think and think again about what we see, what we assume and what we think. The exhibitions will begin on September 10, 2013 and run until October 1, 2013, with an opening reception on the evening of Thursday, September 12, 2013 at 6-8PM. Entrance is free and anyone seeking some inspiration to start the fall season is encouraged to attend.
