2012 ‘Kristo’ exhibit to include sculptures, photos, digital art

/ 01:03 AM March 12, 2012

Since 2005, Artery Manila has been presenting the “Kristo Manila” Lenten exhibitions.

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.

Adding to the diverse visual expressions, “Kristo Manila 2012” is also set to feature for the first time photographs, sculptures and digital art.

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.
