10 Art Exhibits to See This June

Stay dry while getting your art fix!

June Art Exhibit

 

(SPOT.ph) Summer looks like it's officially over and the rainy days are here, which means we have to stay indoors. That is, unless you plan to brave the heavy downpour (and flooding). What better way to take shelter than to immerse yourself with some culture and art?

 

If you don't know where to go, check out this list.

 

Chati Coronel

"Carmine" by Chati Coronel

 

The Way In/The Way Out

Chati Coronel presents in her latest solo exhibition her consciousness as an artist, as a Buddhist, and as a person. As she sees it, human consciousness is like the air in our bodies that moves and keeps us alive. She explores this idea through the use of varied colors, one for each painting. Coronel is known for her multi-layered paintings that make use of raw strokes, rough lines, and soft colors to arrive at a primal core.

 

Opening reception is on June 4, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The exhibit runs until July 2 at Silverlens.

 

Silverlens is at 2/F YMC Building 2, 2320 Don Chino Roces Avenue Extension, Makati City. For more information, visit Silverlens’ website.

 

Mario de Rivera

World Without End

Since then, he has done regular shows both in the Philippines and overseas, with World Without End being his latest offering. He draws inspiration from his travels—so expect to see a range of culture and people featured in his works.

 

The exhibit runs until June 12 at Altro Mondo.

 

Altro Mondo is at 3/F Greenbelt 5, Ayala Center, Makati City. For more information, visit Altro Mondo’s website.

Light in the Darkness

Lichauco as well as a reconstruction of the artist's studio. Arriola became color-blind due to an illness, but it hasn't stopped him from painting a life full of zest. Don't miss his use of time-tested techniques of classical European painters such as Caravaggio and Chardin. 

 

The exhibit runs until June 18 at the Yuchengco Museum.

Kalopsia

Kalopsia is from the ancient Greek word meaning "good, beautiful, and lovely." It is also the name of the group exhibit of Andrew Tan, Christian Regis, Froilan Calayag, Mayu Solano, Austin Niko Suarez, Franklyn Epil, and Vaughn Lumibao. Their paintings try to make sense of the transcience of happiness, ignorance of the society in the information age, and other contradictions of life.

 

Opening reception is on June 4. The exhibit runs until June 24.

 

Galeria de las Islas is at 3/F Silahis Center, 744 Gen. Luna Street, Intramuros, Manila. For more information, visit Galeria de las Islas' Facebook page.

In the Blink of an Eye

For his recent solo show, contemporary painter Carlo Angelo Saavedra experiments with the transcience of image through the presence of flickering light as devices. He explores the culture of perception and variations of seeing things caused by the speed of the eye. 

 

The exhibit runs until June 25 at Art Underground.

 

Art Underground is at 814 Balagtas Street corner Shaw Boulevard, Barangay Addition Hills, Mandaluyong City. For more information, visit Art Underground’s Facebook page.

 

Gino Bueza

 

If We Fall, We Fall Hard

Gino Bueza's works of art need to be experienced in a three-dimensional way: on the canvass and on the space surrounding them. His paintings, which stand on constructed stilts, give a puzzle-like environment to his show. Bueza was a Grand Prize winner in the 40th Shell Students’ Art Competition (Oil/Acrylic category) in 2007. If We Fall, We Fall Hard is his seventh solo exhibit.

 

The exhibit runs until June 26 at MO_Space.

Johann Espiritu

"Vend-O 01" by Johann Espiritu

 

Cy Près

Johann Espiritu's Cy Près cracks open the artist's own piggy bank of image memories. He cuts and pastes these brain imprints to make sense of things, such as a pack of smoke, his mobile device, and a vending machine. A lawyer by profession, Espiritu's works has been displayed in newspapers, magazines, billboards, and even featured in limited-edition postage stamps.

 

Opening reception is on June 4, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The exhibit runs until July 2 at Silverlens.

 

Silverlens is at 2/F YMC Building 2, 2320 Don Chino Roces Avenue Extension, Makati City. For more information, visit Silverlens’ website.
