Just some of the wonderful visuals at The Saturday Group’s 49th Anniversary Exhibit.
Yesterday afternoon, I had the privilege of attending the opening of The Saturday Group’s 49th Anniversary Exhibit entitled, “Chair: A Send-Off for Malang.”
The annual event showcased the sculptural and painting talents of Lydia Velasco, Franklin Cana Valencia, and other gifted members that make up The Saturday Group[i].
You can find their gallery-aptly called The Saturday Group Gallery–at the 4/L, East Wing, Shangri-La Plaza Mall, EDSA, Mandaluyong City.
The Exhibit will run from July 22-31, 2017.

[i] Established almost half a century ago, The Saturday Group convenes bi-monthly for painting sessions, art talks, and fellowship.
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.
