Two Exhibitions in April

Just waiting for my latest colored in work from Narelle Craven's "Percy and the Mystic Island" from the frame shop and I'd say all these are ready to go.

I'm talking about half of these framed works from coloring books being sent to the University of Sto. Tomas Museum for an event entitled "Color More, Stress Less", a joint project of the Colleges of Psychology and Fine Arts.

The 4-week run will feature the adult coloring trend in an exhibition and academic talks. The two lectures are interesting, they will tackle the artistic and psychological dimensions of colors in visual art. 

Entrance Fee in the museum is P50 per person. It is open on weekdays only (see bottom of poster for museum operating hours). So starting Monday, April 11, works of colorists from our group, Coloring Book for Adults, may be viewed until May 6, 2016 at the UST Museum Gallery. 

Other koloristas whose works will be included in the exhibition are Vermailene Barrios, Gilda Loja, Ian de Jesus, Ayn Descalsote, Cathy Lasam-Ballo, and Jacqueline Simpao-Callanta. 

Another exhibit (more like mall display) that will feature my works as an adult colorist, is in SM Megamall, Mega Fashion Hall. This will be on the weekend of April 16 & 17. During the event hosted by SM Stationery and sponsored by Faber Castell Philippibes I will also be holding 1-hour workshops for interested colorists and walk-in participants sometime around 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm. We koloristas are also calling the gathering an OCC™, our term for our signature event where we meet and greet other hobbyists for an afternoon of fun and learning. 

I'm really excited about the new frontiers we're opening up for all the adult colorists in the country. It's time we democratize art with our renderings and make everyone realize that the practice of art is universal.
