The Saturday Group Presents The Gallery (May 27, 2017)

Congratulations again to Tito Frank Cana and the rest of The Saturday Group!

Made my way this afternoon to Rustan’s Shangri-La in Mandaluyong for the opening of The Saturday Group’s Gallery.

The exhibit featured a number of stunning art pieces and sculptures (Click here for the photos).  The Saturday Group also had two guest lecturers from the Lopez Museum.

The first speaker discussed the intricacies and importance of art conservation.

Here are a number of tidbits that I picked up:

  • As wood is organic, the materials has to have the opportunity to “breathe” and not be wrapped in bubble wrap plastic.
  • The ideal medium for wrapping artwork is paper.
  • Climate conditions are always suspect.  It is best to check your artwork regularly.
  • The LUX and UV Environmental Meter–a device that measures light–is worth over P100,000.
  • In the event of a fire, museums usually categorize art according to value and importance.  These pieces are usually the first to be evacuated.
