Works of 14 female artists on display at VOCAS gallery
by Press release

Fourteen women artists from Baguio, the Visayas, and Manila’s Muslim community joined forces to share their iconic works about gender, women’s issues, and their inner selves.

Opening with spoken word performances by Dumay Solinggay, the representative of the Philippines to the recent Hyderabad Literary Festival in India, this edition of the annual women’s art show at Victor Oteyza Community Art Space (Vocas Gallery) will also kick off with experimental art videos on March 18 at 6 p.m.

The participants are 10-year-old Sakura Alangui who has joined several art exhibitions under the tutelage of her artist father Ged Alangui; Loffy Bermejo whose first paying job was as a puppeteer at age eight when she staged her show at a birthday party and who has since been telling stories through any available medium, such as indie film, digital artworks, speculative fiction, short stories about time banks and an alternate Philippines; and Marlyn Bulayo, this year’s show organizer, whose cultural images show the strong character and power of women, their beauty and femininity.

Also joining is the granddaughter of National Artist for Dance Leonor Orosa-Goquingco, Evelyn O. Del Rosario Garcia, a caricature retaso artist.

Also joining are portraitist Jen Lorenzo, a regular fixture Baguio’s Tam-awan Artists’ Village; Anne “Mahdu,” founder of Ormoc City’s “Art That Heals” program and a meditative art therapist for street children and youth with behavior problems and addiction related issues; reluctant artist Jas Mohammad, who answers emails for a living; Laurice Pocais whose  works were inspired by her curiosity in producing faces with the use of thousands of dots after reading a book that showed early newspaper prints of photos comprised of small pixels/dots will also be joining.

The other homegrown Baguio artists are self-taught painter Jo-Anne Bray Siadto; Arcely Talicuad, whose world of creativity is her own guide in life; Sheela May Tabuno, who at age 32, thinks that life without art would be empty and meaningless; and Ja Turla who has been creating mirrored and kaleidoscopic photos of trees as her method of healing of bipolar disorder.

The exhibition is open to the public until April 28.

Vocas Gallery is located at the 5th Floor of La Azotea Bldg., 108 Session Road. For inquiries, contact 446-0108 or 0939-912-7266 or email:
