Invitation to the Retrospective Art Exhibition by Argie Agelarakis, Thursday, Oct. 31st at 6:00 p.m., in New York

We would like to invite you to the opening of the Retrospective Art Exhibition by Argie Agelarakis on Thursday, October 31st, 2019, at 6:00 p.m., at the premises of the Consulate General of Greece in New York (69 East 79th Street, New York, NY 10075)

Inspirations: The blue of the Aegean, the rhythm of the winds, dreams, experience, hopes, desires.

Argie Agelarakis is a Greek American artist living in New York City and Rethymnon-Crete. She earned her BFA at The School of Visual Arts and her MA at Adelphi University, and is a Part-Time Faculty member (in both Universities). Drawing from her experience in the fields of archaeology, anthropology, and art, she teaches courses in technical drawing, scientific illustration, food-culture-and art, ethnobotany, and classes that explore the relationship of art and science.

Working as an illustrator, creating images published in journals and books relative to archaeological and bio-archaeological, forensic and medical illustration, calls for accurate renditions, true in color, feel, and nature of the particular subject.

As a fine artist, her work is influenced by her technical drawings, but also in breaking free from them. The beauty of the purest forms found in our natural environment, particularly the sea, stimulates her creativity. Using a wide range of media, she creates abstract or surreal works, aiming to convey rhythm or harmony of color, form, and composition.

The intention is to entice the viewer, not merely for a glance, but several moments, to absorb what they see, to feel what they feel when standing before the piece, leave feeling provoked, inspired, stimulated, and or informed.

The exhibition will run until November 14th, Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

We are looking forward to welcoming you at the opening reception.

Sincerely,

Konstantinos Koutras

Consul General of Greece in New York
