“THE GATE,” by Tessa Aligaen

An art gallery nestled in idyllic Antipolo is the perfect venue of an exhibit focusing on gardens. “Inspired by Gardens” at the Antipolo Pinto Art Gallery opens Aug. 25 at 3 p.m.


“THE LAST Dragonfly,” by Tessa Aligaen

Some of the featured artists include Jim Orencio, a master impressionist who captures the play of light in his on-the-spot gardenscapes; Jeanne Tan, who fascinates with the coral gardens of her under-the-sea travels; and Andy Orencio, who paints his mountain reveries in blue.


Visitors can view Candice Arellano and Reymar Gacutan’s abstract gardens; Ricky Villabona’s detailed forms; Philip Ines’ electrified foliage; and Anthony Palomo and Tessa Aligaen’s romantic watercolor gardens. Gardener par excellence Popo San Pascual shares his dreamy jungle in Tagaytay, while his friend Dranreb Belleza captures a profusion of colors.


“Inspired by Gardens” will be on view from Aug. 25 to Sept. 10. Call Mikey Blanco at 0916-3187558 or e-mail [email protected]
