Art is very much alive in the Philippines. The country boasts many established artists, whose works have been recognized here and abroad, and burgeoning ones, whose undeniable talent is already evident in their artworks.
One proof of the Filipinos’ love and appreciation for art is the Art in the South art festival, happening on Sunday, April 23 from 10 am to 8 pm at The Filinvest Tent, Filinvest City, Alabang, Muntinlupa. Admission is free.
There will be 50 booths featuring works of hundreds of participating artists like world-renowned sculptor Ramon Orlina, Father of Filipino Impressionism Roger San Miguel, and Surrealist Raul Lebajo, to name a few. Many talented, young artists are also participating, which will make the event an interesting eclectic mix of superb Filipino talents.
The organizers said, in a press release, that Art in the South “seeks to bolster the booming art scene in the fast-developing neighborhoods of Muntinlupa, Laguna, Parañaque, Las Piñas and Cavite.”
There will be music, food, drinks, and even a free painting workshop – a perfect event to bring the whole family. For more information, please click here.
