ABSTRACTIONIST CARESS BANSON PRESENTS “LIFE IN TECHNICOLOR” EXHIBITION AT PODIUM FOR THE BENEFIT OF FEEDING METRO MANILA, Opens August 12
Abstraction is an aesthetic form that can be intensely expressionistic. Working with feelings and emotions instead of the deliberated rules of anatomy, or the philosophical constructs of mimesis, abstractionists are an almost purer type of artist. Within this realm, we find artist-activist Caress Banson and her abstraction practice, which she uses to benefit a wide range of social issues—urban hunger among them.
At this intersection of social involvement, we have Feeding Metro Manila (or FMM). FMM is a hunger relief charity, and their goal is to be able to support as many meal centers around Metro Manila as they can. Their biggest priority is to feed pre-school and elementary school children who are undernourished. FMM monitors both their physical growth and their academic progress in school.
In this light, Galerie Joaquin partners with Caress Banson for the benefit of FMM, with the hosting of a special exhibition entitled Life in Technicolor. Opening on August 12, Monday, at 6:00pm, it will be held at the 2nd floor Atrium of the Podium Mall, along ADB Avenue in Ortigas Center, Pasig City. Featuring new works by Caress Banson, all the proceeds of the exhibition will go to fund FMM projects in and around Metro Manila.
The exhibition will run from August 11 to 18.For more information, please call Galerie Joaquin at (632) 723-9418 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org Please visit GalerieJoaquin’s website at www.galeriejoaquin.com.
