Caruso Awards 2015, a painting competition for young and contemporary Filipino artists, is mounted by Caruso Ristorante Italiano. In partnership with Galerie Astra, the gallery chose the competing artists.
Setting another milestone, Ristorante Italiano chose the unique theme of food and art for the first Caruso Awards. According to the restaurant’s co-owner and marketing manager Emilio Mina, the contest also aims to prove that the restaurant also serves as a center of culture and arts, especially since he sees the “big potential in talented Filipino artists.”
Caruso Awards was launched with a preliminary selection on March 26. The competing artworks will be displayed at Caruso restaurant for public voting. The votes will then be combined with the scores of three prominent Filipino artists who are set to set to judge the arts competition, namely Gus Albor, Noel El Farol, and Jean Marie Syjuco.
The semifinals will be on April 16, followed by the finals on May 14. The awards night will be on May 28 at Astra Galerie at the LRI Design Plaza at Bel Air Village II, Makati City.
