I was invited to the opening of A Decade of Renaissance Art Gallery earlier this evening at Megamall Art Center Building A, 4th Floor. This exhibit showcases abstract, figurative, sculptures, and photography. Since I took up photography in college, I was very excited when I saw one of the people whom I admire as part of the roster. It was no other than Mr. Jim Paredes.
Thankfully, he was indeed present and he was so accommodating that I felt that my trip to Megamall was all worth it. We even had a short discussion about nude photos and how the people here react to it. It was just so surreal to have a person I have admired for a long time be talking to me like we were on the same level. Eeekkk.
Of course, there were other artists and paintings being shown. These are some that really caught my eye.
Some of the photos were not put on display which made me sad because there were really great ones that were just at the back door and some not so great ones on display in my opinion. Then again, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
It was a first for me to attend such a gathering and I'm glad that I made it. It was definitely something new and something worth experiencing. Do visit them at the 4th Floor Building A SM Megamall. They will be there until June 29, 2013.
