The art scene in Davao City is surging high and has come out from the dry spell of creative juices. For the past couple of years, slowly but surely, young and veteran artists are coming out from the woodwork, showing their artworks in different venues in the city. This time, the much awaited biggest art event to hit Mindanao, the 2019 Mindanao Art Fair Exhibit organized by Mindanao artist Kublai Millan will bring them all together.
The Mindanao Art Fair will be participated by select Mindanaoan artists from different Mindanao art galleries and groups . Among the participating art galleries is Davao based Bintana Art Gallery (BAG) owned by spouses Alex and Isabelina Alagon.
