AMBABANGIL- Art exhibit

AMBABANGIL is the Pangasinan translation of the word ” variety “.  Featured artworks in this exhibit are mixed collection of sculptures by Pangasinan local artists who used scavenged materials, bonded stone, paper mache and century – old salvaged woods to produce works symbolic of nature romanticism, even surrealism.

Pars, a professor at  Pangasinan State University Lingayen Campus, is a multi-awarded visual artist and member of the Art Association of the Philippines.  His paintings and sculptures of various themes maximize the use of scavenged materials and found objects.

“Alay sa Pamilihang Bayan” is the theme for ArtPetron 2009, the nationwide art contest promoting Philippine art, culture, tradition and values to the Filipino youth.

By focusing on Philippine markets (pamilihang bayan), ArtPetron 9 sends out an open invitation to bask in the sense of community and abundance in the different traditional markets all over the country. Much of Philippine culture is deeply embedded in these public places, reflecting values of trust, industriousness, and pride in one’s produce.

Entries to ArtPetron 9 must feature pride in the Filipino vendors and in our country’s produce. Markets depict richness of life; each speaks of the unique identity of its locality. It proudly highlights its hometown’s distinct products — tuna market in Saranggani, danggit market in Cebu, strawberry fields in Baguio, vegetable market in Benguet. Philippine markets define who we are.

Mural Contest – Day 11

mural-gangAlthough it’s summer, during our first week the competition is tough because of the heat of the sun and  some participants cannot manage to finish their painting so the committee gave us extension.  The following weeks was even more tougher because of the rain everyday, so we decided to buy a tent to protect us from the rain so we can continue our mural painting.  Here I am finally putting the finishing touch on the logo.

Hoping this mural painting will give pride and joy to those who commisioned on us the Municipality of Bugallon.
