Chelsea's Agora Gallery to Feature Works of Marcia Haufrecht, 12/23
Chelsea's Agora Gallery will feature the original work of New York actress, playwriter and artist Marcia Haufrecht in Sensorial Realms. The exhibition opens on December 23 and runs until January 15, with a reception on January 8. Any art lover who enjoys thought-provoking artworks and meeting talented and interesting artists is encouraged to attend.
New York based artist Marcia Haufrecht captures the human spirit in oil paint. Haufrecht's work, characterized by bold planes of solid colors and repeated contours of figures in motion, incorporates elements of Fauvism and Futurism as her figures interact with the world with motion and texture. In some pieces, elongated shadows extend from the bottom of the painting, projecting off-scene subjects, with the environment and perspective turned around on the viewer and painter. In other works, faces stare emotionally from bright, poignant portraits. Each image is a study in movement and mystery, but also maintains an intimacy with its subjects. Cozy painted spaces, like subway cars, allow Haufrecht to explore the unique personalities behind the city masses, creating a portrait of New York City as well as the individuals within it. Haufrecht makes a priority of developing a deeper connection to her subjects through her work.
A dancer and actor as well as a painter, Haufrecht believes that "all the arts are a means of communicating with the world at large." Her paintings serve as an exploration of and connection to this complex world.

Art That Takes the Audience on A Journey
When you take a step into Sensorial Realms you are entering many universes at once. The unique talents of the featured artists revise and warp reality, their works acting as filters through which the viewer may revisit familiar scenes with eyes afresh. Abstracted landscapes, celebrity portraits, and everything in between meet in this astounding collection to confront viewers with their expectations of art, media, nature, and the human experience. Assembled with great care, Sensorial Realms offers a gracious balance between serenity and chaos: striking viewers with stark emotional dissonance, then soothing them with harmonious, flowing beauty.
