Tarlac and Central Luzon Art Fairs

Diwa Ng Tarlac has reopened to the public in time for the second Tarlac Art Fair, taking place until October 31. The success of last year’s fair inspired over 100 local artists and photographers to exhibit their art at the said museum.

Meanwhile, the first Central Luzon Art Fair is ongoing until October 23 in Tarlac’s Bulwagan ng Kanlahi.

Wave Cadenza

Edwin Wilwayco has launched their solo exhibition “Wave Cadenza” at Galerie Joaquin Rockwell. This will continue until October 22.

The exhibit features a series of abstract images inspired by and evoking musical structure.

Meanwhile, the compositions of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart serve as its backdrop.

“In Wave Cadenza, Wilwayco achieves the visual physicality of Mozart’s grand and luscious musical theatrics, flourishes, and diversity of sound architecture: the wavelike movements, layering of curves, counter-curves, dissymmetry, and repetition of high and low expressions; and, as is natural for Wilwayco-the strong play of bold, vibrant, and powerful color arrangements to deliver profound emotive viewer satisfaction,” reads the official description.

Beast Master

Salcedo Auctions’ gallery arm, Salcedo Private View, has announced Ronald Ventura’s solo show titled “Beast Master.”

This will run from October 25 to November 9 at the main gallery of Salcedo Auctions in Makati’s NEX Tower.

“Beast Master” marks the artist’s first solo-selling Philippine exhibition to open in 2022.

For the show, Ventura explored “the meaning of, and ideas associated with, his thematic choice, creating beasts of every kind to pull apart long-held perceptions, or blend mediums, motifs, and beliefs altogether to result in a perplexing whole.”
