Caritas Manila art series on exhibit at Chef Jessie


“MOTHER and Child,” by Moyong;

Caritas Manila’s exhibit series  “Artworks at Paintings ng mga Bilanggo” is on view at Chef Jessie Rockwell Club until Sept. 30.

The exhibit showcases artworks done by maximum security inmates at the New Bilibid Prison. Subjects include religious icons, Mother and Child, portraits and slice of life. Medium is either oil, wood burning or pyrography.

The series is under the Restorative Justice Ministry of Caritas Manila which aims to help “artist-prisoners” earn a living for themselves and their families. The ministry is one of the projects of Caritas Margins for the poor and the disadvantaged by helping them market and sell their products.
