The evening of Sept 22 was different than any regular Thursday night. Century City Mall and Galeria De las Islas presents “A Century of Philippine Art!” exhibit which gives tribute to great Filipino talent, for eternalizing centuries of Filipino tradition and culture into timeless masterpieces. Be mesmerized and taken back into time with 100 masterpieces by world-renowned Filipino artists who have painted and sculpted their names into our country’s history.
It is very noticeable that our generation today has little interest on visiting museums and exhibits. The Digital sphere is more popular among the younger generation. There is nothing wrong with being updated…but we should have a balance on not forgetting the greatness of our rich history. “A Century of Philippine Art” is an exhibit that aims to interest mall goers to take part with History thru works of Art.
100 Art pieces curated over a century period by one of the oldest Art Gallery in Manila. Galeria de las Islas or Gallery of the Islands is the art gallery located at the Silahis Center in Intramuros has been exhibiting paintings, sculptures and other works of art since 1967. It has become noted for its collection of Philippine genre art.
The Official Toast was led by the people behind the success of this Exhibit opening: Karl Mclean, CEO Superbrands Philippines, Ed Soler, Owner of Astra Gallery, Mark Shellshear, Gallery Director and Cherry Genato Event Exhibit Director.
