(SPOT.ph) Aside from the Art Fair Philippines and ALT Philippines, another emerging art event in Metro Manila is also catching the attention of art collectors, patrons, and artists. Annually held at Xavier School in San Juan since its inception in 2014, it doesn't only feature alumni from the all-boys school and the all-girls Immaculate Conception Academy, but also a number of artists and galleries from all over the country. For this year, the highly anticipated Xavier Art Fest is showcasing over 40 galleries and 15 featured artists, including Jojit Solano, Cedrick dela Paz, Patrick Cabral, and Demi Padua. It's happening online from April 2 to 10.
Hosting this year's Xavier Art Fest is Xavier Alumni Batch ’96, which chose to focus on the theme "Mind, Body, and Heart." Beneficiaries of this year's art-selling and fundraising event include Operation Odette, an ABS-CBN Foundation donation channel for the victims of the 2021 typhoon that barreled into the country; Para Kay 'Cher, a medical assistance program for retired teachers of Xavier School, and the Fr. Zuloaga Scholarship Fund.
The upcoming virtual exhibition is part of Xavier Art Fest 2022's hybrid set-up, which had a live event from March 18 to 20.
Xavier Art Fest 2022 runs from April 2 to 10 through their website.
