A visual feast for Dumaguete


- Advertisment -spot_img

Art has served to bring life, color and texture to our world. It is a product of a people’s joy and celebration, a reflection of one’s grief or anger, the outcome of people’s ambitions and aspirations, a recollection, a requiem, a commemoration of loss, or even simply, an interpretation of how someone perceives the world.{{more}}

But whatever reasons underlie the advent of art, it is widely accepted that art is an important aspect of our society, our humanity, and our cultural pride.

This month, Dumaguete City celebrates the grace of our local artists’ creative vision and hands through Kulay at Hugis.

In line with National Arts Month, Kisaw 2011 Magmugna ta!, organized by the Youth Advocates through Theater Arts, and SkyCable, in partnership with the City and Province and the Sidlakang Negros Tourism Officers, is blessed to have an exceptional group of talented artists from Negros Oriental and beyond, coming together to give the public a rare glimpse of their works in one place.

The roster includes, among others, Glory Abueva-Tobias, Amihan, Marz Amil, Clee Andro, Raul Arbon, Budoy, Susan Canoy, Hersley-Ven Casero, Ken Concepcion, Sharon Dadang-Rafols, Jaruvic Rafols, Audie O. Estrellada, Raquel L. Gregorio, Samuel B. Gregorio, Marietta ‘Baby’ Jambora, Jana Jumalon-Alano, Rey Dante Legaspi, Franco Mijares, Devroe Nico, Jutsze Pamate, Leah Remollado, Danni Sollesta, Kitty Sollesta-Taniguchi, Jean Ann Tenebroso, and Muffet Dolar-Villegas.

Robinsons Place Dumaguete hosts the exhibit which opens on Saturday, Feb. 19 at 3 pm, with performances from Voices of Catherina Cittadini School, and Manjuyod’s Silaw gracing the opening program. The exhibit runs until Feb. 26.

Other delightful visual treats around the City include Anonymous Animals at the Mariyah Gallery, featuring terracotta works of Michael Teves, Danni Sollesta, Benji Ranada, Cristina Taniguchi, and Mark Valenzuela, and photographs of Hersley-Ven Casero. It runs until early March.

Meantime, two exhibits will open on Friday, Feb. 18: the Horace B. Silliman Annual Exhibit at the Luce Auditorium Foyer at 5pm of SU Fine Arts students; and Healing Mother Earth at Jutsz Café at 6 pm. (YATTA PR)
