The Recent Works of
Nunelucio "Nune" Alvarado

The Negros Museum proudly presents “ALVARADO”,  an exhibit of the recent works of Negrosanon artist Nunelucio “Nune” Alvarado which will open on February 4, 2012, Saturday at 6PM at the  PHINMA Main Gallery of the Negros Museum.

Alvarado will exhibit more than 60 artworks of pen and ink inspired by the people who are living and struggling to make it through the end of the day. 

“Disturbances inspire me to paint alone, though being with people energizes my heart and all these fantasies make me feel brand new,” Alvarado verbalizes his thoughts on his recent works. 

His subjects include people around him, some are the manoglibod, bolantero and the people who sees every day.

Alvarado became one of the awardees, Patnubay ng Sining at Kalinangan sa Larangan ng Pintura of the Cultural Center of the Philippines, Manila (2004).  He is also a 2-time Grand Prize Winner of the Philip Morris Philippine Art Awards (1999 and 1997), one of the most prestigious art competitions in the country.

“Mga Sugilanon sang Pamatan-on” will open at the lobby of the Negros Museum this Thursday, January 12, 2012 at 6PM, to be followed by cocktails and a theater-music performance featuring the songs written, and arranged by the Binhi Kids.

The Binhi Creative Arts and Crafts  Workshop, Inc. presents  “Mga Sugilanon sang Mga Pamatan-on” (Stories of the Young), an exhibition of drawings, paintings, sculptures, poems and songs created by the Binhi Kids .

This is a collection of stories told in non-continuous narrative some works molded in clay and others in images, colors, rhymes and songs. These are chronicles of life, about being young, heard, seen, and  experienced many times ---  viewed from the perspective of today’s youth. These are stories of hopes, dreams, love, joy, happiness, aspirations; and the struggle to live and express it.

The Binhi Creative Arts and Crafts Workshops consists of 15  young people in their  teens and early 20’s who, for years, have spent their spare time attending workshops and seminars provided by volunteer artists and by friends of Binhi who are also a part of the local Negrense art community. Along with them are 15 younger kids ages 9-12, who attend the free workshops in music, theatre and visual arts every Sunday.

Binhi’s exhibit will run until February 1, 2012. For more information, please contact the Negros Museum at Tel. Nos. (034) 7085080 | 4334764 | 09213307861 or follow Negros Museum on Twitter, Facebook and Blogspot. ####
