In celabration of 446th founding anniversary of cebu provincial government, today Hon. Governor Davide cut the ribbon to formally lauch provincial government-led art exhibit. Provincial Liga President Hon. Celestino Martinez, III spearheaded the activity with the overwhelming support from the First lady of the Provincial Governor Miss Jobel Davide and from Hon. Miguel Magpale, SP committee chairman of culture and arts. Awarding of plaque of appreciation followed the ribbon cutting, whereby the participating artists, who are all members of Nubes Art Group, led by the legend Jose “Kimsoy” Yap received their plaques of recognition.
The art exhibit was held in the social hall of Cebu Provincial Capitol. The paintings were ellegantly hung on a well-lighted display all throughout the hall set under the two grand chandelier above them. The cluttering noise of appreciations among guests was mellowed down by the jazz and bosanova music played in the background by a group of gentlemen whom I suppose masters by themselves in the field of music.
The two days art exhibit, which will culminate tomorrow afternoon, aims to promote the Cebuano local artists and their obras. Also, their obras displayed during the exhibit were all for sale and the proceeds thereof will go for the funding of daycare facilities for the children and families situated in areas near the garbage dump sites and in the far flung barangays of Cebu Province which do not have daycare facilities.
Here are some photos captured during the exhibits.
