An Artfull MassKara group show opened Monday at the Artfull Art Gallery at 18th-Lacson streets, Bacolod City and will run until November 8, featuring more than 50 artworks from 13 Negrense artists.
The exhibit features the works of Artfull resident artists Beto Tiano, Maymay Camarines, Ramon Delos Santos, Vicky Gasper, RPG and Creative Managing Director Tey Sevilleno.
Guest artists include Rodney Martinez, Edbon Sevilleno, Michael Martinez, Svetlana Sevilleno, Jaycee Seran, Ellen Carmona-Kochoa, and Marj Masangkay.
Artfull Gallery features different Masskara Art from its resident and guest artists through different media and styles. These local artists hope to continue the art of making the “Masskaras” by not only making smiling faces but also other kinds of expressions.
Through their art they want to say that the Masskara is not just about the smile but it is about how human beings thrive in whatever circumstances they are currently in.
It clearly shows how these masks can be their armor to protect their emotions and can also be considered their weapon to fight for what they believe in, the press release added.*
