Also I can’t deny the fact that summer in the Philippines also means more colorful weekends, brought by numerous festivals and also numbers of city art exhibits.
One of hobbies I always enjoy is visiting art galleries and public exhibits – a good reason to keep myself updated to the art trends and style concepts.
For almost 10 years, Salcedo Village becomes the avenue of the city’s most young, talented, and fresh artists along with a diverse group of galleries, art schools, independent art spaces, and collectives for the country’s most significant affordable art fair.
Art in the Park is an annual event organized by Philippine Art Events, Inc. for the benefit of the Museum Foundation of the Philippines in its mission to create awareness for the National Museum and its network.
Art in the Park offers visitors a range of paintings, prints, photographs, sculpture, and new media at prices Php 50,000.00 (or $1000) and below.
And if you are new in collecting art pieces, and having a hesitation to gamble huge money for a piece (being skeptic) this fair is a good start for you!
Set in the relaxed and casual atmosphere of Jaime Velasquez Park in the Philippines’ financial capital of Makati City, Art in the Park keeps to its mission of making the visual arts accessible to everyone.
The fair is always a free admission, everyone can enjoy the sights of numerous art displays, on-the-stop sketching and painting, entertaining the everyone with live band musicians, artistic performances, free art lectures, and if you are feeling famished, there are some available food stalls (and trucks!) offers various delectable foods and drinks for your palate.
I suggest you marked your calendar for the next year’s affordable art fair. Trust me, you’ll never ever regret visiting :D
