Come to Pintang Laya 2017 art sale this July 1

Come to the Pintang Laya Art Sale 2017, our first-ever art sale/auction to be held on Saturday, 1 July 2017, 4-7 p.m., at the Bantayog ng mga Bayani conference room.

Art Sale Pintang Laya 2017

The sale/auction will feature works by, among others, our own Bantayog trustee Edicio dela Torre, watercolorist Marge Lim, and Celeste Lecaroz, who contributed a dramatic painting of our hero Ed Jopson. Several young and talented artists are also on board, including Alex Paredes, granddaughter of our hero Ester Jimenez. Some of their works are shown here.

Fund raising art sale

Funds raised from the sale will support our foundation’s advocacy projects, including school exhibits and a school tour for a set of one-act plays titled Never Again: Voices of Martial Law. This production connects strongly with our millenial youth. We have found it a powerful tool for raising awareness about the truths of the martial law regime that ushered in the 14-year Marcos dictatorship. We believe that recalling the lessons from that dark period in our history, evoked so effectively in *Never Again, has become even more urgent today.

Please support this art sale by promoting it with your friends. The works on sale are exhibited below:

To confirm your attendance at the July 1, 2017 art sale and auction, contact Bantayog (bantayog.sprojects@gmail.com / 434-8343 / Marj.) Cocktails will be served.

*Never Again was first shown in 2016 and is set to be shown again in September at the Cultural Center of the Philippines. Last year it was hailed by the website spot.ph as one of 2016’s “25 best arts and culture moments. “Indigo Child,” one of the plays in the production was also named in a Philippine Daily Inquirer review as the “best one-act play” for 2016 and has since been made into a short film by producer-director Ellen Ongkeko Marfil.
