Fil-Canadian artists exhibiting nature-themed works in Surrey, B.C.
SURREY, B.C. –Twelve Filipino Canadian artists are exhibiting nature-themed exhibit works at Surrey Art Gallery.
The “How Green Is Your Muse?” is “both a celebration of nature and a plea for universal action to preserve and protect it,” according to an event announcement.
The exhibit will be shown from Nov. 16 to Feb. 2, at Surrey Art Gallery – 13750 88 Ave. with an opening reception on Saturday, Nov. 23 from 2:30 to 5 p.m., featuring live music, food and introductory remarks. Admission is free, and all are welcome to attend.
“In an exhibit of catalytic artworks, they convey visceral images of peaceful, majestic environments, while provoking viewers to imagine a world without clean air and devastated by the effects of harmful human activity,” the announcement states further.
The British Columbia-based Filipino Music and Art Foundation (FMAAF) invited 12 artists to represent their views of nature. The featured artists are Danvic Briones, Ileta Buenaventura, Tessie Dichupa, Jo Galang, Mayo Landicho, Edgardo Lantin, Lenore RS Lim, Chito Maravilla, Esmie Gayo McLaren, Bert Monterona, Soliman L. Poonon and Broderick Wong.
Their work includes carving, printmaking, traditional painting, collage with found objects and painting with soil. The exhibit is presented in partnership with the Philippine Consulate General in Vancouver.
