Agora Gallery is in the heart of New York City's Chelsea art gallery district. Agora's 8,000-foot gallery space hosts a revolving schedule of exhibitions by talented artists, and works to connect them to art collectors and dealers all over the globe. It was established by artist Miki Stiles in 1984 to provide an opportunity for new artists entering the New York art market. Stiles' own struggles in attempting to display her work in the competitive industry inspired her to help other emerging artists by giving them a space to establish themselves in Chelsea and show their pieces to the public.
Agora Gallery maintains Art-Mine, one of the most comprehensive resources on the web for locating fine art for sale, and often used by the exhibited artists to sell their pieces. The gallery also publishes ArtIsSpectrum Magazine, a bi-annual art industry periodical distributed to museums, galleries, art institutions and art schools around the world. It provides artists, collectors, museums, galleries, art organizations and enthusiasts to feature articles, reviews and interviews, as well as access to developing mid-level artists.
