|The year began with a milestone in the contemporary art scene. 24 galleries and art groups were selected and invited to join what turned out to be an "overwhelming", "outrageous, reverential and fun" Art Fair Philippines.|
CANVAS was both honored and excited to participate, and our booth featured 5 of the best - Elmer Borlongan, Manny Garibay, J Pacena II, Anthony Palomo and Don Salubayba - all exploring the unique and pervasive influence of basketball on our national culture.
We're already looking forward to Art Fair Philippines 2014 in February. Based on what we've heard (and even seen) of what the other galleries have in store, the whole event promises to be equal if not better than the original.
|2013 also marked the 150th birth year of national hero Andres Bonifacio, and to celebrate and pay tribute, CANVAS centered its 5th annual Looking for Juan Outdoor Banner Exhibit around the theme "Revolution."|
