FIT TO PRINT
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.
