PIA Press Release

Zambo Norte artists to hold art exhibits, lectures

By Emma B. Prima

Dipolog City (October 5) -- The Zamboanga del Norte Federation of Visual Artists (ZANFEVA) is holding its first group art exhibition at the 2nd Floor, ZN Convention and Exhibition Center in this city from October 5 to 31, 2006.

On October 6, art lecture series and art forum will be conducted at the same venue by two noted art experts from Manila. Prof. Ruben David F. Defeo of the University of the Philippines, College of Fine Arts will lecture on "Art Education and Appreciation" while Mr. Christopher E. Rollo of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) will talk on "Museulogy, Mindanao Arts and Government Art and Culture Policies".

Don Gurrea, the concurrent president of ZANFEVA says the Federation is an organization of dedicated artists based in the province. Their goals are to elevate art awareness among the populace, to create new opportunities for improving economic benefits and to promote creative development for all artists in Zamboanga del Norte.

Comprising the Federation are the Dipolog Artists Consortium, Inc., Padayunay Art Collective, Ta Glibon Ini (Lady Artists), Mugna, And Goodtimes Cafe Artists.

The art exhibit is aptly entitled ANI which is a metaphor for the first major gathering of visual talents among the united local art practitioners within the province. It is a showcase of artistic expressions, indigenous materials, and creative techniques.

Rich with environmental, religious, economic and socio-political concerns- these are the artists' honest and sincere visual statements to the viewing public. (PIA) [top]
