WITH two galleries in prime addresses in Manila exhibiting and finding new homes for artworks of famed Filipino artists like National Artist Frederico Alcuaz and Abdulmari Imao, modern masters Ramon Orlina and Juvenal Sanso, to name a few, Galerie Raphael comes to Davao to showcase its first exhibition in “Exquisite Collection: Davao”.

Joaquin Teotico, the managing director/owner of Galerie Raphael and son Nico shared, “Davao has always been a top choice for the gallery’s operations. Setting up the third gallery in Abreeza Mall has been the next step in fulfilling its primary objective — for art to be accessible to everyone. The intention is to eventually set up a permanent space to showcase its currently represented artists and celebrate the work of local artists from Davao.”

The first Davao exhibition includes the works of 18 artists like Sanso, Rubio, and Cacnio. It also showcases the works of Mindanao artists Abdulmari Asia Imao, Toym Imao, and Kublai Millan.

“The Galerie sees the project as an opportunity to meet Davao and Mindanao artists and be in a position to display the chosen works as part of the gallery’s collective exhibit. It intends to explore diverse talents and prides itself in representing the best artists from the country. As such, it would like to strengthen its ties with artists from the South as well.”

Davao’s art lovers and collectors came to the opening reception and snatched artworks to add to their collection.

The “Exquisite Collection: Davao”, an exhibition of works hosted by Galerie Raphael, will run from August 15 to September 15 at the ground floor of Abreeza Mall.
