AN opening salvo for the first day of the month of arts kicked off with an exhibit titled “Abstract Sense” at the La Herencia Davao in F. Torres St. The show was organized by award winning Davao artist Elenita “Boots” Dumlao who is also the main exhibitor together with 19 other select Davao artists from young and upcoming to the most seasoned – to weave the show which focused on non-representational art pieces creating a myriad of dialogues.
Abstract Sense proposes an artistic statement of pure human freedom and yet grounded to one’s artistic manifestation of their soul. The exhibit hopes for greater appreciation and connection with the arts while developing a greater and wider mind-set in understanding diversity and humanity, according to Mr. Rob Tanedo, the administrator of La Herencia Davao.
The ribbon cutting of the opening reception was attended by Davao City Vice Mayor Atty. Jay Melchor Quitain Jr., Mrs. Josie Tionko President of DAFI, Ms. Brenda Barba of PWC, Mr. Kevin Mejos representing NCCA.
Davao City Vice Mayor Quitain who is also a visual artist said he was delighted to see the growing Davao arts community visible through continuous art shows all over the city, all year round. He further encouraged everyone to make more art shows to inspire the next generation Davao artists.
The exhibit was curated by Dadai Joaquin and the flow of the program during opening reception was handled by its program director Ms. Trixie Borbon. This must-see exhibit runs until Feb. 7, 2023 and is open for free viewing to the public from 10am-7pm.
