It’s been a while since the last time I posted something here and I wouldn’t want you thinking that I have been slacking off. I’ve had quite a few artsy experiences since I was away from tumblr and it felt right to blog them…only I haven’t had the time to do it. I’ve been meaning to but work gets in the way.
A month ago, a friend of mine invited me to a gallery opening and asked if I could show some of my paintings for the group exhibit and I happily accepted the offer, this being my first gallery experience and all. There were a lot of new artists, mostly self-taught (if not all), who also showed their works and it’s one of the best things about it; meeting new people who share the same interests with you and probably experience the same inner struggles you do every day you make art. And in a city that doesn’t really have that much appreciation and respect for art, it can be intimidating and disheartening for a beginner. But the owner, my friend who’s also an artist, knows the feeling all too well; thus it was set up in a laid back manner which didn’t primarily focus on profit.
(Also, incredible, original music artists were featured in this event, thus adding to the artsy vibe.)
So this post will be just an unedited photo dump of everything that was taken that night. And if you find this too “chaotic” on your dashboard, I’m sorry. :)
I will post more of my “adventures”, so to speak, next time. And I’m particularly excited to tell you of my meeting with an established artist based in Manila. His works are incredible. :D
