Since 1963 February has been celebrated as American Heart Month. In keeping with this tradition, Agora Gallery will host a special event "Art to Heart" in support of The Children's Heart Foundation

Artists in the February exhibition have created a collection of small works specifically made to honor little hearts all over the world. The entire sales proceeds from the sales of these particular pieces of art will be donated to The Children’s Heart Foundation.

The exhibition is scheduled to open on February 7, 2013 and run until February 27, 2013. The opening reception will take place on the evening of Thursday February 7, 6-8 pm. Entrance is free and all art enthusiasts are warmly welcomed to attend and meet some of the artists responsible for creating these remarkable works of art.

In addition, to the February exhibition, Agora Gallery proudly sponsors the annual Chelsea International Fine Art Competition, a renowned art contest that is juried by prominent museum curators and art experts. It is a great opportunity for the juror-selected artists to gain exposure by exhibiting their work in the famed Chelsea Art Gallery District as well as be part of online and print promotions.

Congenital heart defects are the foremost birth defect in the United States, making research into diagnosing, treating and preventing them of vital importance. In addition, families with children affected need information and emotional support as they learn to deal with this difficult reality and its ramifications. Agora Gallery is proud to support the Children’s Heart Foundation, which contributes to both of these crucial areas. As part of our commitment to helping art make the world a better place, Agora Gallery donates 15% of its proceeds from the sale of artwork from the art competition exhibition to the CHF.
