“Changing Paces”: A Group Exhibition of Nova Gallery
June 8, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - June 15, 2019 @ 7:00 pm
Nova Gallery will showcase artworks from 7 overseas artists and 2 Filipino artists this June 8,2019 at 6pm. They will be showing an array of thoughtful paintings from a clutch of Manila-based artists who are all students of provocative Philippine artist, Thomas Daquioag. The 8 artists are Joanne Asquith, Alix Burrell, Karen Lane, Lilian Khadka ,Tony Ratcliffe, Suganya Sreenivas ,Amanda Tan and Valerie Mercer-Blackman, whose inspirations are informed by experiences stemming from their birthplace cultures in the UK, the US, Colombia, India and Nepal as well as extensive travels around the world, and their current lives in Manila, Philippines. Thomas Daquioag, who believes in the artist’s responsibility to respond to his political, economic, and social surrounds, is a long-time art educator and has been working with the students for several years. “Painting is an expression of inner thoughts, feelings, and impulses but working with artists in groups to share experiences brings out the best in everyone and their work. The Philippines has a proud artistic tradition and I am happy to see artists from overseas becoming part of that,” he said. The artworks will be available for purchase with profits from the sales to be directed to various charities inside and outside the Philippines. The show will take place at the Nova Gallery between June 8 and will run until June 15 Opening hours are 11am-7pm.
