The National Commission for Culture and the Arts, St. Scholastica’s College Manila and ArteKolasa will host Dear Me, Yours Truly, a thesis exhibition of five student artists under St. Scholastica’s Bachelor of Fine Arts Visual Arts and Design program. The exhibit will open on March 3, 5:30 p.m. at the NCCA Gallery.
Dear Me, Yours Truly features different art forms that reflect each artist’s take on identity and validation. Mainly products of their personal introspection, the pieces included in the exhibit tackle the artists’ memories, personal experiences, emotion of loss and grief and stories of their personal struggles.
The five artists and their installations are as follows: Andrea Acevedo’s Hypostasis which takes on the underlying meaning of one’s hair; Danica Callejo’s Carl Jung inspired Project Niki; Mary Cuenca’s Parady; Giselle Lee’s Insight Out Installation which tackles her personal battle with glaucoma, and Debbie Sacre’ Padala na Ala-ala which takes on her struggle with the feeling of liss and grief. Together, they will have an artist talk on March 8, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Dear Me, Yours truly will be on view at the NCCA Gallery until March 31. Gallery hours are from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM from Mondays through Fridays. Weekend appointments are pre-arranged.
