The Association of Pinoyprintmakers (A/P), previously known as the Printmakers Association of the Philippines or PAP, will hold an exhibition entitled Papers and Layers on August 27 to September 25 at the Cultural Center of the Philippines Second Floor Hallway Gallery and Little Theater Lobby.
For their 2016 show at the CCP, the Pinoyprintmakers go back to basics, so to speak and return to works on paper. However, this does not necessarily mean that they are relegated as “traditional”, for printmaking is vital to the changes of the visual arts landscape. Though the works may be rendered on paper, the final prints may be transposed as sculptural works on paper, installation art with paper, and such. Hence, they just do not pander on one surface but rather give it layers by how they work with images as they add and or press them on surfaces.
Participating artists include Ambie Abano, Buen Abrigo, Jose Santos Ardivilla, Virgilio Aviado, Mars Bugaoan, Mica Cabildo, Benjie Torrado Cabrera, Kristen Cain, Salvador Ching, Joey Cobcobo, Jean Dee, Fil Delacruz, Janos Delacruz, Neil Doloricon, Noell EL Farol, Samantha Feleo, Jess Flores, Raul Isidro, Eugene Jarque, Lea Lim, Lenore RS Lim, Angelo Magno, Fara Manuel, Maja Markovic, Ged Merino, Jonathan Olazo, Renan Ortiz, Henrielle Pagkaliwangan, Rhoda Recto, Jun-Jun Sta, Ana, Suchin Teoh, Josephine Turalba, and Wesley Valenzuela.
The Pinoyprintmakers will interact with the public in an Artists Talk and Demonstration slated on September 7, 2pm-4pm, at the CCP MKP Hall.
Other exhibitions on view at the CCP are Promdi, the group exhibit of Dumaguete artists, until 14 August at the Pasilyo Vicente Manansala (2F Hallway Gallery) and Pasilyo Guillermo Tolentino (3F Hallway Gallery) and Ryan Rubio’s Instinctual Creation until 11 September Bulwagang Fernando Amorsolo (Small Gallery).
CCP gallery hours are from Tuesday to Sunday, 10am-6pm (or 8pm on days with performances in the Main Theater).
