Last year, the well-received show raised funds for book donations to the Aurora A. Quezon Elementary School in Manila and a public library in Malolos, Bulacan.
In cooperation with Artery is the Center for Art, New Ventures and Sustainable Development.
This year’s exhibition is “So Be It.” In the 14th chapter of Corinthians, when one utters “Amen,” or “So be it,” at the end of a prayer, one affirms the truthfulness of the foregoing words.
Among the invited artists are Kristo Malolos founder Salvador Ching, Franklin “Caña” Valencia, Norman Dreo, Roel Obemio, Hermes Alegre, Anna de Leon, Janelle Tang, Salvador Convocar, Migs Villanueva, Al Perez, Anton Balao, Daniel Aligaen, Rudolph Gonzales, Norlie Meimban, Henri Cainglet, Robert Deniega, Gerrico Blanco, Louie Ignacio, Carla Gamalinda, Tet Aligaen, Mark Arcamo, Farley del Rosario, Palma Tayona and Jaime Gubaton.
Also participating are media men Voltaire Contreras and Pinggot Zulueta. International editorial cartoonist Deng Coy Miel has also committed his work.

Sculptors invited are Ramon Orlina, Michael Cacnio, Juan Sajid Imao, Carlito Ortega, Danny Rayos del Sol, Maria Magdamit, Jinggoy Salcedo and Dr. Ton Raymundo.
