This is Lariza Garcia, a mother of five of which four are artistically incline. I happened to attend an event last Feb 23,2018 at the Estancia Bridgeway in Capitol Commons about their art festival.
Ortigas & Company hosted the Ortigas Art Festival.
Ortigas & Company is one of the pioneers in real estate development in the Philippines. The company continues to build suitable places for life through its iconic estates for living, shopping, business, and entertainment and they will hold a month -long art festival to bring art closer to the hearts and minds of the Filipinos. the event is just in time for the National Arts Month.
The Ortigas Art Festival is sure to captivate art lovers from all walks of life with well-curated art pieces that reflect the country’s evolving art scene. With Estancia being home to Ortigas’ first art festival, this will surely showcase Ortigas & Company’s commitment to promote Filipino creativity and ingenuity.
What to expect in the Ortigas Art Festival?
Recognizing its role in bringing the arts to everyone, Estancia has made sure that the art festival will be exciting and interesting to mall visitors by shining the spotlight on contemporary art pieces. The art festival is being held in partnership with Alfredo Esquillo’s Eskinita Gallery, known as an alternative platform for artists and an “art project” that continues to evolve in the “here and now” of contemporary art.

Estancia’s Bridgeway will be transformed into an art space featuring unique exhibits and creative workshops from February 23 to March 26. Watercolors, portraits, sculptures and other forms of art come together to transform public space into a unique artistic showcase
To be featured are the works of artists Allison Wong-David, known for her imaginative stainless-steel works; Helen Mirasol, who effortlessly captures the simplest and most beautiful things through photography; and Peter Sutcliffe, established watercolor artist and art teacher.
Visitors can also check out solo exhibits by up and coming artists Anthony Victoria, Arvi Fetalvero, Bon Mujeres, Ged Merino, and Richard Buxani, all of who experiment with various materials to create one-of-a-kind pieces.

“Ortigas & Company has always supported the arts. By holding an art festival in Estancia, we hope to make art more meaningful and accessible. It is also our way of fostering a deeper regard for the art and cultural scene, while offering a new experience for mall patrons and the Capitol Commons community,”

Art is part of our life
We may not notice it, but we are artist on our right.
Each of one has their own art interpretation, I realize that when my children studied in Philippine High School for the Arts. On that school, each student has their own version on how to express their feelings and you will be amazed on just how creative their minds are
