It was a hot Sunday morning, the day we visited Art In The Park – a once in a year event that features affordable art held at the Salcedo Park in Makati. But it was a good day to take pictures – clear and full of sunshine. I would strongly suggest though, that one wear or bring some kind of protective covering, like a hat or umbrella, and sunscreen, especially if you intend to visit between morning to late afternoon.
This event is sort of like a one-stop shop of your favorite artworks and artists. One would surely enjoy the variety of art on display here.
My friend was able to buy her very first art piece by the artist Isagani Fuentes, called “Structures”.
I had to admit that due to the volume of artwork in this place, I find curating, or the tagging/labeling of the pieces correctly (like to which artist, what title, from which gallery, and what not) to be a little daunting. So, maybe you can just scroll away and enjoy the photos for now 😀
It seems like Instaroid prints are becoming an “in” thing in events these days. There is one available here as well, sponsored by a known telco, where you can stick two of the printed photos to the metal sculpture displayed near the entrance of the park. They printed two pairs, so the other two you can keep for yourself.
There are also food stalls in the venue in case you get hungry (which you will) during your visit.
We were supposed to be joined by another friend with his dog. Unfortunately, the park doesn’t allow this cute bundle of fur inside, so we just had to meet them at the entrance. Aaawww…
Guys, meet Stella 😀
After some time, we were feeling tired and exhausted and was thinking of freshening up somewhere indoors. Incidentally, we’ve learned from the Altro Mondo Gallery’s booth that there is a showing of Wes Anderson films happening at The Picasso Residences nearby. So off we went. Unbeknownst to us however, another surprise is waiting. But, I’m gonna have to leave you hanging on the details for now, as it is yet for the next blog entry 😀
