Bastedor Art Project Presents "Mukha" in ArtSpace

Bastedor Art Project invites everyone to a celebration of art in the group’s latest exhibit entitled, “Mukha.” Featuring multi-awarded and well-respected contemporary artists in the country the show promises to present us with only the best of the best. The much-awaited event will be held on October 24, 2011 6 pm in ArtSpace ,Glorietta Mall.

For every masterpiece, there must be a foundation on which it stands. “Bastedor,” is a group that attempts to embody such a foundation to the people. By definition, a “Bastedor” is the wooden frame, which holds the canvas on which the artist paints. It is only fitting, that the group has taken this name for themselves as the perfect metaphor for what they hope to do for the local artistic community.

Norlie Meimban, a distinguished visual artist and former animator, is one of the pioneers of “Bastedor.” The group and this project in particular have come into being from his own experiences as a struggling artist. After enjoying a successful career in animation and advertising his decision to devote his time fully to painting was not without difficulty. And it is through those difficulties that he was able to see the camaraderie and close ties among fellow artists who are more than willing to help our a fellow craftsman. It is because of this that he hopes to organize their loving capacity to support one another into a formal group, and thus “Bastedor” was born.

Bastedor aims to, “to provide financial assistance for Filipino artists and marginalized children…to help these artists to promote their arts locally and internationally, and also to aid Filipino children in their everyday lives through their own talents and skills.”

This coming October will be a celebration of such a goal, with an upcoming event brought by “Bastedor.” “Bastedor Arrt Project: Mukha” will have its opening in Art Space in Glorietta on October 25, 2011, 6pm. “Mukha” is a group exhibit featuring the works of the most talented visual artists of our country.

The exhibiting artists are, Hermes Alegre, Grandler Bella, Elmer Borlongan, EJ Cabangon, Mike Cacnio, Roen Capule, Buddy Ching, Demetrio Dela Cruz, Raynold Dela Cruz, Simkin De Pio, Vincent De Pio, Melvin Culaba, Thomas Daquiaog, Dennis Gonzales, Juan Sajid Imao, Jon Jaylo, Ronald Jeresano, Mark Justiniani, Aileen Lanuza, Tony Leano, Neil Manalo, Lutso Manes, Norlie Meimban, Ferdie Montemayor, Rodel Omampo, Jim Orencio, Vincent Padilla, Jerson Samson, Julius Samson, Reynaldo Samson, John Santos, Pamela Yan Santos, Ronald Solon, CJ Tanedo, Tammy Tan and Olan Ventura.

The exhibit will contain a diverse number of works from different mediums as well as sculptures. Each participating artist will submit one and a portion of the proceeds will be given to The Shepherd of the Hills Orphanage in Zambales and will benefit 100-200 artists by contributing to their accidental insurance. Sponsored by JJS entertainment, many others were included in the organization of the project having supported its vision. More than an exhibit promoting a good cause, it is one which promises to commemorate life, art and friendship.
