Negrense visual artist Maymay Camarines is holding an ongoing solo art exhibit at the Artfull Gallery at 18th-Lacson streets, Bacolod City which opened on November 6 and will run until December 20.

Featured in the show titled “Strokes of Bounty”, Camarines’ works captures the Negrosanon’s most important season— the harvest, in his recent works through colors and graceful, playful strokes.

Each piece expresses a sense of gratefulness and though they demonstrate the hardships of labor, they also invite us to celebrate the happiness of bounty.

It also shows that amidst the storm of the pandemic we are still showered by abundance of blessings.

Stroke of bounty is a celebration of love and hope as reflected in Camarines’ unabashed and unapologetic splash of colors and graceful strokes.
