    About the Exhibition:

    Agora Gallery presents Enigmatic Visions, a new collective exhibition that is singular in its attention to the subtlety that can be found in contemporary art. While many equate progress with simply making the next piece bigger and louder, that is not the beginning and end of the state of today’s art landscape. Though the eleven artists on display in Enigmatic Visions come from all corners of the globe, each brings out the magic in more modest concerns.

    This shared interest in the small scale can manifest in many different ways. It can be a study of physically empty places: flat, rocky plains or the lonely, mysterious seas. It can be zooming in on a single object for an updated take on the still life. This is a recurring motif in the exhibition, from a series of austere black-and-white photos of flower blossoms to intensely focused images of the body in motion. It can even be a small psychological space, such as the depiction of a single figure or an isolated group of people.

    Enigmatic Visions opens July 28 and runs through August 17, 2017 with an opening reception Thursday, August 3 from 6 – 8 pm. Entrance is free.

    John Borrero


    I am a storyteller. I am self-taught. My art is of history, mythology, religion and folklore. 

    My sculptures shaped together until they take form and gain a sense of personality. 

    My paintings with layers of mixed media elements. The process is intuitive. 

    I follow where the painting leads me. 

    I paint with my fingers to become directly involved in the texture, layering and composition. 

    I take items that are ugly…and flawed 

    …and in the process create art darkness and light, humanity and divinity.

    (NY) One of a Kind Art Show

    I got a chance to go to the One of a Kind Show yesterday and saw all kinds of delightful things!  This artshow happens in 4 cities every year and is the #1 destination to discover new artists and get unique presents for the holidays. If you haven’t been you most definitely should go!
    New York Date:
    Toronto Date:
    Vancouver Date: 
     The Chicago Show is Dec 2-5
    Show History
    Similar to most brilliant ideas, the One of a Kind Show was born out of a simple desire for something more. Premiering at Toronto’s Queen Elizabeth Building in December 1975, the “craft show” was the brainchild of Steven Levy, Martin Rumack and June Bibby. June (herself an artisan) couldn’t find a place to sell her work before Christmas, so the three friends decided to create their own holiday shopping venue. After a great deal of leg work and countless all-nighters, the trio launched the first One of a Kind Show, which encompassed 25 000 square feet and 80 participants.
    The One of a Kind concept expanded in 1979 to include the One of a Kind Spring Show (Toronto) and again in 2001 with the One of a Kind Show and Sale Chicago. Our most recent additions are the One of a Kind Vancouver (2008) and One of a Kind New York (2009) Attracting over 200 000 visitors annually, our two Toronto shows have become a Canadian shopping tradition for those in search of the unique, handcrafted and the fantastic.
    MMPI Canada
    The One of a Kind Christmas Show, One of a Kind Spring Show, The Artist Project, Interior Design Show, IDSWest, Toronto International Art Fair, IIDEX/NeoCon Canada, and Explore Design are a family of events that produce the most innovative trade shows in the country. Collectively, we are known as MMPI Canada.
    Some of my favorites… I will profile each of my favorite artists in an individual post with links to their website. But for now, here’s a peek at the goodies
    Etsy was one of the show sponsored and had a button making station!  Thanks Etsy 🙂
    It is always refreshing and inspiring to see artists and artisans live their dream and create beautiful things. More photos here

    (NY) Emily King

    Emily King New York Music Sensation
    So who is Emily King?

    Emily King is the biracial daughter of accomplished jazz singers/composers Marion Cowings and Kim Kalesti. Due to their similar backgrounds, King is compared sometimes to the singer Alicia Keys.
    Her debut album, East Side Story 2007; it gets it’s title gets it’s from New York City’s Lower East Side, where King was raised.
    “I’ve been singing since I was a young kid,” she said, going on to state that despite both her parents being singers, she wasn’t pressured to follow in their footsteps as a vocalist. “I just always kind of knew. Something in my heart said that’s going to be it.”

    I got to see her sensational performances at Rockwood Music Hall.. Check out the cutie on the keyboards…. what!  Just when I thought I was over music guys.. swoons..
