Exhibit runs until November 27 with gift wrapping workshop and design talk
Pumapapel: Art in Paper, the Yuchengco Museum’s latest exhibit on the beauty and versatility of paper as an art medium, is extended for three more weeks due to popular demand. Visitors now have until November 27 to enjoy the exhibit, which was originally scheduled to close on November 6.
The extended run will give museumgoers a chance to explore paper in various art forms—whether it’s the framed works of paper artists Tony Gonzalez and Tes Pasola, the colorful prints of Pandy Aviado, the organic sculptures of Impy Pilapil, the assemblages of printmaker Joey Cobcobo, the urban paper works of Wataru Sakuma, or the innovative paper fabrics of papermaker Asao Shimura. Visitors to Pumapapel will also get to interact with Zen garden and rain paper installations, and view paper couture created by students of the School of Fashion and the Arts (SoFA) out of recycled papers.
In line with the paper exhibit’s extension, the Yuchengco Museum is offering two special programs:
- First is a demonstration on the Art of Gift Wrapping by Bernice Ocampo on November 17, Wednesday, at 2 p.m. Using handmade paper and ribbons, Bernice will show how to wrap elegant Christmas presents that will amaze friends and family. Participants can brush up on gift wrapping skills and see some new techniques and ideas.
- Second is a Design Directives talk by designers and paper artists Tony Gonzalez and Tes Pasola on the last day of the exhibit, November 27, Saturday, at 2 p.m. Both of them will discuss international paper trends.
These events are free with museum admission. Slots are limited. To register, call 889-1234 or e-mail [email protected].
