PAG Invitation 2018 small 

 

 Our Journey: 30 Years and Counting

Exhibition Duration: June 18 – June 23, 2018

Opening Reception: Saturday, June 23 from 1 – 4pm

The heart of the immigrant resides between two countries. Filipino-Canadian artists are no different. As the old country pulls them back, the new opens its arms and envelops them. The longing for the past and the love for the new are reflected in this special 2018 Exhibit, OUR JOURNEY: 30 YEARS AND COUNTING. The Philippine Artists Group of Canada (PAG in short) marks its 30th year anniversary with a retrospective of its members' art over the years, as well as the members' latest offerings. The old country is reflected in paintings featuring subjects close to the Philippine heart. They hang side by side with paintings of Canadian subjects. Another special feature is a wall of 12 x 12 paintings, offered at special prices.

The exhibit will also feature, at its June 23 at 1 p.m. opening, the launch of its coffee table book, featuring past and current members' paintings. Copies of the book will be offered for sale at the Exhibit.

PAG is Canada’s preeminent and oldest Filipino-Canadian art club, officially formed on June 12, 1988, to foster fellowship among its members and to promote art to the Fil-Can community.

Marie A. Prospero

Exhibition Duration: May 1 - June 29, 2018

Marie's Mailbox paintings are meant to be personalized by writing a name on the Mailbox which can be done on pickup. Each painting is a hand painting original. They are a great gift and can be made to fit any commercial frame in a variety of sizes from 8 x 10 to 16 x 20 inches. The hand painted scarves are 100% silk. The variations are caused by the salt on different hues. Then they are wrapped in tissue and steamed for 45 minutes to set the colours and finally washed by hand. Marie’s pendants are hand sculpted of clay and painted in gold.
