Artists Testimonials

Slide 1
My participation in the Latin American Fine Art Competition at Agora Gallery was one of the most important experiences of my career as an artist. The work that the Agora Gallery team put into our exhibition was extremely professional: starting with their selection of the jury, the communication with the artists, the incredible work they put into our exhibition creating so many collateral pieces such as the pamphlets, the photos, the videos, and the relationship with the press. The reception was especially emotional, Agora shone again, as it was a true Latin American party. Many people got to know me thanks to this exhibition. I am eternally grateful to Agora and his team for giving Latin American art a home.

Claudia Ruiz Gustafson, Peru, 2019 Selected Artist for the Latin American Contemporary Fine Art Competition
I was super excited to see my work displayed. I was especially fortunate to have my photo used as the “poster photo” for the show and when we approached the gallery on the way to the opening we saw the poster on a wall with other gallery posters. I was not expecting this and I was so excited and proud. When I saw my work in the gallery everything about the show was professional and I couldn’t have been happier to have been selected for the show.

I consider it has been an important step forward in my career as an artist. Having been selected out of so many international artists contributes to increasing the value of my work.

José María Peña, Spain, 2017 Selected for the Chelsea Fine Art Competition
This was the first time that my artwork was exhibited outside Canada... two pieces were sold, and the positive feedback that I received boosted my confidence in what I am doing.

Renée De Gagné, Canada, 2014 Selected Artist for the Chelsea Fine Art Competition
Slide 3
To see my work displayed on the walls of your gallery was validating on so many levels. I have been doing art for more than forty years, and I couldn’t help but feel a strong sense of satisfaction, joy, accomplishment, and personal honor. Thank you for that opportunity. Winning the competition has fueled my passion and inspired me to work harder. It has also provided me with distinction as a professional fine artist.

Doug DePice, United States, 2012 Selected Artist for the Chelsea Fine Art Competition
I am honored to have been selected as a finalist for two consecutive years in the Chelsea International Fine Art Competition! So too, to sell an artwork. It was such an enjoyable experience working with the kind and professional Agora team the first time that I decided to enter again. An invaluable opportunity for any artist.

Slide 4
Participating in the competition has been one of the most exciting experiences of my life. The opportunity to show my work in the great showcase open to the world that is the gallery, is very important for me at this time: nothing less than the opportunity to make myself known at the highest level.

Clara De Bobes, Spain, 2018 Selected Artist for The Latin American Competition
The whole experience of exhibiting in the gallery has been even better than I expected, the staff has always been very kind, always attentive guiding me in every step of the process. I would do it again without thinking and I hope everyone has a chance to participate in the future, it will be a unique and pleasant experience. One that I will never forget.

Daniel Serva, Venezuela, 2018 Selected Artist for Latin American Competition
Slide 5
Two of my favorites takes from this experience have been: Having my work curated by such influential figures in the New York art scene, and being a part of a show with multiple generations of Latin American artists; Artists who have been evolving their practice for 50 years, and young artists like myself that are still learning and developing.

Kevin Quiles Bonilla, Puerto Rico, 2018 Selected Artist for The Latin American Competition
My experience at the Agora Gallery is by far the most satisfying of the many galleries I’ve appeared in. The communication between the gallery and myself have been superb, timely and responsive. Within 2 days of the opening, they have sold 4 out my 5 offerings and the 5th remaining one is getting a great response. I feel honored to be included in this exhibition of truly superb work. Thank you for having me!

Richard Greene, United States, 2018 Selected Artist for The Photography Competition

The gallery sold 3 of my photographs! The price of artworks was carefully negotiated to secure the best outcome and any profit from sale transferred in timely manner.

It was a pleasure to work with the Agora Gallery staff, all were very professional, friendly and the communication was excellent!

Artur Golacki, United Kingdom, 2017, Selected Artist for The Photography Competition
