Oro local artists to hold exhibit-A A +A
Tuesday, August 7, 2012
THE City Government of Cagayan de Oro through the City Tourism Office will host an art exhibition of the burgeoning artists in the city on August 13 to 31 at the City Tourism Showhouse in Divisoria.
The art exhibition will be held in celebration of Kagay-an Festival this August.
The exhibit, dubbed “Art Tsada,” is aimed at showcasing the works of the Cagayan de Oro artists, bringing into the canvas the city’s rich heritage and culture in recognition of the Kagay-anon cultural heritage, history, natural wonders, values and socio-cultural and economic aspirations.
“Art Tsada” will open on August 13 at 3 p.m. to be graced by the city’s government Officials and representatives.
The exhibit is also supported by the National Commission for Culture and Arts (NCCA) Visual Arts Committee as part of its offshoot activities in the promotion of local arts.
It is also sponsored by Mr. Donuts and Dire Husi Initiatives Inc.
Aside from showcasing the artists’ masterpieces, an on-the-spot painting demonstration and art workshop will also be shared by the artists themselves during the fiesta celebration on August 28.
The art workshop will cater to children of Sendong survivors to help them recover psychologically and socially from the trauma and psychological distress through art.
Imma Rae Gatuslao, City Tourism Operations Officer, said the City Government is supporting this endeavor to patronize local arts and provide more opportunities to Kagay-anon local artists to showcase their talents that will also redound for the benefit of our city.
The artists who will participate in the exhibit are budding visual artists with varied line of interests or medium in arts, including Bo Daclan (contemporary arts), Gieward Hullagno (water color painting), Brixrey Guegue (soil painting), Darryl Salcedo (papercut art) and Marigold Cherie Ramos-Garrido (oil/acrylic painting).
