Greetings everybody. To follow my earlier post about the Xavier Alumni Art Guild, I'm pleased to invite all of you to join us in celebrating the very first fine art show of the XAG. The exhibit will run from April 30, 2011 to May 30, 2011 at the Sining Kamalig Art Galley located at Gateway Mall, Cubao, Quezon City. Among the participating visual artists include Fred Tan, Mikko Sison, Owen Tiam, Jed Tan, Rudy Yu, Alex Tan, Seb Chua (my dad), and myself. Around 4-5 major works will be seen from each of the artists. The inaugural ceremonies will be at 7:30pm at the gallery area.
The XAG now has over 80 participating alumni in its roster. This art show will be the first of many to launch the new age of Xaverian art and culture, embodying the school's theme of Luceat Lux as its own. The honorary guest during the opening night will be Fr. Ysmael Zuluoaga, S.J. who recently received the Luceat Lux Award of Lifetime Achievement a few months ago. I was commissioned to create the sculptural emblem for his award and was fortunate to meet him on stage to congratulate him for all that he has done for Xavier School and the community.
I hope that many of you will be able to attend our show. I expect to see familiar faces especially from my batch! Until then, take care and keep living life to the fullest guys.
