Starting November 18, WALLS GALLERY launches COLLABORARE, a unique collection of mixed media artworks made in collaboration between emerging Filipino artists and the Negrense Volunteers for Change (NVC) Foundation, Inc.’s ARTISANS OF HOPE.
For nearly 20 years, WALLS GALLERY has been discovering and supporting emerging Filipino artists. To help artists who are unable to exhibit their work in mainstream galleries, Walls Gallery opened its exhibit venue at The Triumph Square in 2018, and in 2019 held a series of six exhibits featuring different artists at Shangri-La Makati. The exhibits were so successful that arrangements were made to debut the COLLABORARE collection in 2020. Unfortunately, this exhibit had to be postponed due to the pandemic. This year, the gallery proudly unveils the collection.
COLLABORARE is the result of artists and artisans coming together to create one-of-a-kind artworks with added dimension, depth, color and life. The exhibit will run from November 18 to December 18 with proceeds to support emerging Filipino artists, the Artisans of Hope Livelihood Workshop and the Mingo Meals Nutrition Program of NVC Foundation.
NVC Foundation has been recognized by notable institutions for its significant contributions to community development. Most recently, the Ateneo de Manila University awarded NVC Foundation the Parangal Lingkod Sambayanan Award for helping those in need through the foundation’s Nutrition, Education and Livelihood programs. Among NVC’s livelihood assistance programs is the Artisans of Hope Livelihood Workshop.
The NVC Artisans of Hope have developed ingenious ways to upcycle materials like tiles and eggshells as design elements in their distinct mosaic products. A few years ago, they began to upcycle Nespresso capsules into their crafts as well.
