Here’s something new (and a must-do!) you can visit in Cagayan de Oro! Carmen Art District is an artist-run space committed to providing a platform for emerging and established artists to showcase work, engage in critical discourse, and connect with a wider audience. They aim to foster a supportive and inclusive environment in our local community that encourages artistic experimentation and innovation.
And starting today until August 2023, you can check out Kelly Ramos’ “Coming home: Old Paintings,” a gathering of art works in a span of 2 decades. This little retrospective provides a rare opportunity to see the paintings together in one place. It is a way to discover the artist’s development over time, and see the narratives she has chosen for her themes throughout the years.
The paintings on exhibit are borrowed from homes where they were already hanging on the walls of their owners. Some of the paintings were commissioned by the collectors, others used to be part of exhibitions, while yet some others were made by the artist with specific individuals in mind.
The show is made possible through the generosity of art collectors who have agreed to lend the paintings to Carmen Art District for the duration of the show.
Visit Carmen Art District at 20 A. Fernandez corner V. Neri Streets, Cagayan de Oro. Here’s a map:
