Senior fine arts students hold art exhibition

Mary Abigail Go

TO CLOSE THE semester, the senior class of the Fine Arts (FA) Department will hold 3-person exhibits at the FA Project Room located at the Silliman Hall second floor. This will begin with Paghinumdom (Remembering) by Angel Alabastro, Jetmore Banot, and Rey Kerwin Baya.
The exhibition will feature works to explore memory and history.
Alabastro shared that in their title, Paghinumdom, they would like to recall or reminisce the past and understand how it affects the present and the future.
Each of the artists was given a certain topic about the history of Dumaguete City and Negros Oriental. They then made works about that particular period or event in time and related it to their current developing practice.
Alabstro’s model was the “pagdadagit ng mga taga-Dumaguete,” Banot focused on “the history of the nomenclature of the city,” and Baya took inspiration from the “old houses of the city that are now being commercialized.”
According to Banot, the exhibition is to look back, explore, and understand the history of Negros Oriental.
“We focused at how Negros Oriental progressed and was molded through time,” Banot added.
Baya said that the art they will show will help inform the community about the change that has already been done to Dumaguete and how much it will cost us in the future if we finally lose our identity.
Alabastro also said that the viewers should expect the unexpected for their exhibit is not the typical art exhibitions that are usually seen here in Dumaguete.
Paghinumdom is slated to be exhibited from Sept. 14 – 20 at 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.
