Everyone has their Misfit moments that I’m sure you can relate your story with this good-natured comedy written by Richard Harris. It concerns about eight individuals each with unique motivations who attend the same weekly tap dancing class in a dingy church hall.

Lopez Museum and Library, invites you to “Open Ends” – highlights a collection of rarely seen studies, sketches, and unfinished paintings by Felix Resurreccion Hidalgo. This second exhibition of Lopez Museum, works are a segment of the collection that will resurface after more than a decade long hiatus – well-kept and in storage. Hidalgo and Luna were at the forefront of the development of Filipino nationhood and it was through their art that they attempted to make sense of this personal and higher struggle. Their contribution to Philippine Art is more than the laurels and distinctions they garnered in the historic Exposition win in 1884.
I know this Post should fall under “events” but this year, I’ll make it to a point that going to arts related events should be penciled in my monthly schedule. In our career, we also have our own limits and getting burned up is next to being unproductive in a daily basis. then, here comes the point when we started to indulge for a film or stress eating, yeah effective yet pricey, so why not rather pass by art galleries or events right? To be honest this will be the first time for me to engage my self with some of the local art community, face to face, it’s really different compared to just seeing their art works along our social media feeds, but the moment you engage with them, it rejuvenated my close to drought creative juices.
“It takes an Artist to Inspire Another” This is the line I always share to my colleague, Just the same as how I spent last week, I started it by attending Oruha’s Mandala Art Exhibition. If you noticed, my Henna tattoo designs are based on traditional Indian Henna designs, similar to Oruha san, Mandala is based on round patterns that represents the emanating powers of the cosmos or the universe. One way or another, I felt this strong artistic connections to her so I definitely paid her gallery a visit.
