FIT TO PRINT

Town & Country (Philippines) - - OUT & ABOUT CULTURE TOP TEN -

To raise aware­ness and in­spire oth­ers to learn more about an of­ten over­looked art form, the School of De­sign and Arts of the De La Salle-Col­lege of Saint Be­nilde mounts “By Hand: Re­dis­cov­er­ing the Art of Print­mak­ing,” now run­ning at the school’s 12th Floor Gallery. Through the show, vis­i­tors gain in­sight into the his­tory of print­mak­ing (al­ways closely linked to en­grav­ing, one of the old­est art forms), as well as the myr­iad tech­niques de­vel­oped over the ages. Tak­ing the theme Land, Sea and the Ex­change of Ideas, the show features prints by artists rep­re­sent­ing three stu­dios: Michael Kemp­son (Ci­cada Press of the Univer­sity of New South Wales in Syd­ney); Ki­tikong Tilok­wat­tan­o­tai (Chi­ang­mai Art on Pa­per Stu­dios, Thai­land), and Ben­jie T. Cabr­era (As­so­ci­a­tion of Pi­noy Print­mak­ers). Also tak­ing part in the show are fac­ulty and stu­dents of the school’s De­sign Foun­da­tion Pro­gram, show­cas­ing works cre­ated on cam­pus. Dur­ing the du­ra­tion of the show, var­i­ous print­mak­ing pro­fes­sion­als will hold court at a stu­dio ad­ja­cent to the gallery, demon­strat­ing the finer points of their art. The prints pro­duced will be­come part of the ex­hibit and will later be avail­able for pur­chase. All pro­ceeds will ben­e­fit the SDA Schol­ar­ship Fund. On­go­ing un­til April 14; De La Salle-Col­lege of Saint Be­nilde, Pablo Ocampo Street, Malate, Manila; 230.5100 ext. 3849; cam­pusart@ be­nilde.edu.ph.
