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.
