Ang Ilustrador ng Kabataan (Ang INK) is the Philippines’ first and only organization of artists committed to the creation, promotion, and appreciation of illustration for children. It was founded in June 1991, out of a felt need by local illustrators to organize, in belief that a collective effort and organized interaction among colleagues is vital to the professionalization and development of the industry. Its roster of members includes full-time freelance illustrators, graphic designers, painters, writer-illustrators, teachers as well as students in visual arts, and artists working in publishing companies, design-related firms and advertising agencies.

Avellana Art Gallery
AVELLANA ART GALLERY – Founded in 1997 by Albert Avellana, the Avellana Art Gallery is an amalgam of contemporary Filipino art. Its collections and exhibits are as varied as the artists on show, such as Florencio B. Concepcion, Pandy Aviado, Allan and Ivi Cosio to young artists like Eugene Jarque, Allain Hablo , Mac Valdezco, Francis Arnaez, and Francesca Balaguer Mercado among many others.
Avellana respects the temperaments and paces of artists instead of caving into highly commercialized art. Because of this, each exhibit at the gallery becomes a relaxed and deeply personal experience, both for the artist and the guest.
Part of the charm of Avellana Art Gallery is its location, and Albert always makes it a point to locate it within historic and beautiful locations, beginning with the fabled San Juan Apartments along Roxas Boulevard in the 1990s, and in an old home in Fresno in the early-2000s. Since 2003, Avellana Art Gallery is nestled in a quiet, tree-lined, residential compound of post-war houses in Pasay City.
Two-dimensional paintings, dynamic sculptures, intriguing installations, functional art pieces, and other works are exhibited throughout the two-storey-home-turned-gallery, as well as in the adjacent new exhibit space. The artwork mixes into and complements the interiors and gardens, and the entire house becomes part of the exhibit, itself

Los Nuevos Conquistadores
Featuring contemporary artworks of curated artists from Spain and Mexico
Influenced by the Cuenca School, several artists in this collection grew up in the shadows of Fernando Zóbel. They formed part of an avant-garde creative group in a sleepy town that today houses the Museum of Spanish Abstract Art, Europe’s first contemporary art museum.
Little known in the Philippines, it is my pleasure to introduce these great artists to you. Among them, Bonifacio, the abstract expressionist/surrealist from the Basque region; most outstanding of the Spanish avant-garde movement. Irreverent, eccentric and extravagant compositions of bodies and biomorphic figures make his works unique and full of struggle. Moya, whose paintings, done in an asylum in Cuenca, depict an artist struggling with demons and who preferred dogs over people. Moset, the tree and forest lover, allows us to see nature with a fresh look through abstract poetic landscapes. Violá, the virtuoso expressionist from the 1950s, celebrated for his energetic visual forms and palette reminiscent of Spanish baroque paintings.
Adding to these, the impressionist Grau Santos; the self-taught realist Pintado, and the naughty fantasy artist known as the Picasso of Mexico, Cavazos.
I hope you enjoy discovering these new artists as I have. May they find a space in your home and conquer some of your soul.

About the artist:
What started as an interest in calligraphy has blossomed in an art-centric business, Ms. Reena Creatives, for Reena Gabriel (b. 1985). Working mostly with watercolor, her idyllic, romantic images have now graced various products, from fans to fabrics to packaging. Art in the Park 2020 Online marks a debut of sorts: Reena’s first foray into fine arts.
This luxurious chinoiserie-inspired collection takes off from Reena Gabriel’s previous collaboration with Monchet Olives of Casa Mercedes, purveyor of Spanish fans. Here, she reimagines animals from the Chinese Zodiac appearing in fantastic, whimsical settings.

The Authenticity Zero
The Authenticity Zero [TAZC], established in 2019, is a collaborative platform where artists, architects and designers probe the status of local art through non-representational articulations. It questions the role of context and content in a creative output, its precedence, or whether it should be treated as an object independent from style and authorship or vice versa.
TAZC brings architecture, art, design and crafts to a new domain of objects without representation, utilized by the whole strata of society; questioning the role of precedents, meaning, and social exclusivity in modern art and other related industries.
TAZC is diverse in its representation from single practice, design practitioners, writers, academicians, to architects, student designers and artists who all share the common goals. Each entity has the freedom to pursue its specific individual goals within the sphere of the Authenticity Zero collective.
Non-authenticity is the new authenticity.

The Mighty Bhutens
The Mighty Bhutens is the group name of 3 artist friends, Oliver Olivete, Kabunyan De Guia, and Guiller Lagac. The group started in 2005 in Baguio where they accepted commissioned mosaic works. Their group philosophy for the artworks they create is “Bathala na”—a combination of artist creativity and going with the universe’s flow. Their contemporary mosaic styles have distinct signatures according to the artist — Oliver Olivete’s is experimental mixed media, Kabunyan De Guia’s is whimsical and Guillar Lagac’s is traditional. Their chemistry as friends can be seen in their group artwork, because although their artistic styles are distinctively different from each other, they are able to come up with artworks that are unmistakably “Mighty Bhutens”. They are now based in different places — Oliver Olivete (Baguio), Kabunyan De Guia (Davao) and Guiller Lagac (Laguna) but they always come together as The Mighty Bhutens at the Annual Art in the Park Fair.

Village Art Gallery was established 39 years ago when the lure to live South of Manila started among the upward, mobile, educated & progressive individuals and families.
Even then Agnes Galvez, founder of the gallery, already saw the need to go beyond simply existing to making life richer & more meaningful. She initially located Village Art Gallery in the midst of the country’s largest residential community, BF Homes to cater to residents’ need for art. When the consumer trend shifted to the malls, it was her gallery that was one of the first to establish at Alabang Town Center, its present location.
Through the years, Village Art Gallery has assisted clients to scout for valuable pieces from masters to emerging artists. Many of the budding artists have gone on to carve names for themselves. Village Art Gallery is now being managed by daughter Sam Galvez-Lorenzo who shifted the galleries focus to contemporary art. She continues Village Art Gallery’s avowed purpose of developing artists who may be full of talent but lack exposure and motivation.

UP College of Fine Arts
The University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts exhibits the vibrance of Philippine artistry expressed in a vast range of creative works, produced by faculty, students and alumni of the Diliman campus.
As the oldest art school in the Philippines, UP-CFA has long been recognized as a most fertile ground on which to hone artistic skills — rooted firmly in culture, whilst responsive to relevant issues affecting the human condition.
UP-CFA serves to sustain these interrelationships and points of connection between the multi-dimensional present, rootedness in the past, and spirited pursuit of new artistic trajectories, enriching the engagement with, and conversation about, visual arts in the Philippines today.

vMeme Contemporary Art Gallery
vMeme (pronounced vee-meem) is a structure of thinking which manifests in human behavior & development, social dynamics, systems, choices, directions and culture at large. The perspective that aesthetics of art goes beyond physical, aesthetic and economic value is what prompts the establishment of vMeme Contemporary Art Gallery, a curator-run space founded by an art historian who wishes to have an art space readily available for curatorial projects devoid of pressures from market and institutional forces), and that supports Philippine contemporary artists who integrate advocacy in their practice. It is intended to provide a space for concept- and advocacy-led exhibition projects dealing with art history and historiography, environmental advocacy, human rights, women’s and children’s rights, socio- political issues and pushing the boundaries of form, content and audience. The artworks presented in vMeme exhibitions and collection represent a culture of hope and freedom for art, artists, communities and our society.
