The Muse - she was once the female platonic ideal, a deity, a sage, a goddess; and for hundreds of years the blessing
of a Muse was essential for the creation of art. For many artists, the Muse is alive and well, infusing the psyche with a
gust of the divine, to inspire not imitation but new insights. For many years Agora Gallery’s Director Angela di Bello has
privately addressed the issue of new art forms with artists from every corner of the world. This dialogue has culminated
in her theory that today’s muse is often either a physical place or a place in the heart. Over the past ten years artists
have discussed with her the inspiration that becomes manifest when they are exposed to the spirit and energy of New
York City. In ‘Evoking the Muse’ artists share their experiences of the city. Angela would like to thank Judy, Wendy,
Therese, Tatiana, Anna and Bharati for their evocative and powerful contributions, and encourage others to share their
experiences with us for the November 2013 issue of ARTisSpectrum.
