I am sharing to you the event's press release which you might want to share to all art lovers, collectors, students and enthusiast that you know.
The Mamamayang Artistang Taga Antipolo (MATA) is inviting the public to witness the opening of the 4th One-Man Show Art Exhibit featuring the works of one of its member, artist Jose Rizalino S. Villan at Casa Divina in San Isidro, Antipolo City on May 5, 2013 (6:00 pm). The exhibit will be on display until May 15, 2013.
Villan, a student of the great Ibarra Dela Rosa, the foremost exponent of meticulous impressionism in the Philippines, will showcase his oil and charcoal paintings mostly on rural life and nature. Most of his artworks were inspired by the things he grew up with from the green landscape of Sta. Barbara Iloilo to the busy streets of Quiapo and to his current abode in the ever captivating Antipolo.
He has also invited other members of MATA and artist friends to bring an artwork or two to as a kind gesture of sharing the limelight to the people whom he have worked with for decades.
Villan will make himself available at the art gallery during the 10-day run to personally answer queries from collectors, dealers, buyers and fellow artists.
