Grupo Sining Angono, in collaboration with Artists of Angono and 3/7 Poetry, announced its online exhibit entitled “Kristo Angono MMXX”, which is now available.
This is an initiative of the core members of the group where various talented visual artists, all residents of Angono, were invited to take part in this timely endeavor. This exhibition was inspired from the annual “Kristo” project that was mounted by Bulacan and other Manila-based artists, initiated by Salvador Ching and has become a Lenten tradition among art groups in the Philippines.
In light of the lockdown due to Covid-19 pandemic, the organizer decided to continue the show via a virtual exhibition in the group’s Facebook page. It is the ardent desire of the group that despite the uncertainty of the times, this coming together of the Angono artists will not only continue what has been started during Lent but will also serve as a way of sharing their talents, to inspire or heal in their own little way, by those who are mostly affected by this deadly pandemic.
Check out some of the pieces in the exhibit below.
