Apart from Valentine’s Day, Filipino artists of all forms gather every February to celebrate National Arts Month. In lieu of this celebration, Pahiyas Art Society is set to hold its first art fair in Ali Mall, Araneta City from February 24 to 26.
Titled Converging Hues Art Fair, the event aims to provide upcoming and emerging artists the opportunity to showcase their talents in a wider market and to be able to mitigate the impact of the pandemic and get back on their feet again. The exhibit is the best way to establish the fundamentals for self-understanding and public awareness. Each artist’s unique style will provide the audience with a window into different stories.
Pocket events are also scheduled for the duration of the art fair, including Mandala Stone and Henna Tattoo art demos, live sketching, and live busking performances. Elisha de Pala, finalist in the recent Tawag ng Tanghalan, will also hold a mini-concert on February 26 to cap the art fair.
Art merchandise, food, and souvenir items from Quezon Province will also be on sale at the bazaar. The art fair will also have a raffle draw that will be held every day where the participants can win art pieces, food vouchers, and other event souvenir items.
The Converging Hues Art Fair will be open to the public on February 24, at 5:00 P.M. The art fair is made possible through the support of the J. Amado Araneta Foundation, Gateway Gallery, Ali Mall, Araneta City, Pahiyas Art Society and Lucban Tourism Office.
