UnARThodox: Art Fair

A Huge 3-day Art Fair in the North.

Miriam College launched the possibly first and biggest art fair event in the North with the help of ArtisteSpace, Inc. — an events agency that specializes in Creatives, Institutional Events, MICE, and Set-Up services here in Manila. This event was held from January 31 to February 2, 2019 at Paz Adriano Grounds and Henry Sy Innovation Center, Miriam College, Quezon City.

The art fair title “UnARThodox” was coined from the term unorthodox, which means the contrary to what is usual or traditional. During the said art fair, over one hundred for sale art pieces from professional and amateur artists were exhibited. Local artists were from Manila and nearby provinces.

Prestigious artists of different art forms participated as well, such as Philip Badon and his wife Thelma Badon, the doctor-artist Ronnie Lim, Ral Arrogante, Alex De Castro, Paper Cutting Philippines President Badz Magsumbol, Caress Banzon, Norlie Meiban, Boysie Villacencio, and the Association of Foot and Mouth Painters of the Philippines Member Jovy Sasutona, to bring out their distinct work.

Besides the exhibit, they also conducted seminars and workshops that were facilitated by well-known artists and professionals:

  • Calligraphy
  • Portraiture
  • Paper Cutting
  • Digital Film
  • Digital Art Production
  • Jewelry Making
  • Fashion
  • Design Thinking and Creative Process
  • Latte Art
  • Origami Making
  • Rubber Stamp Making
  • 3D Printing

Ms. Fozzy Castro facilitated the Calligraphy workshop and I swear, she makes the Calligraphy look easy to do! As you can see, I suck at it. But, with the help of provided materials, I’ll definitely practice Calligraphy at home. lol!

Expectation vs Reality

Many thanks to Miriam College and ArtisteSpace, Inc. for organizing a huge art fair in order to introduce the Filipino artists to the young aspirants, hopefully to engage their passion for arts.

As a celebration in honor of the Philippine Arts and our local artists, over 5,000 delegates and participants witnessed this event, making UnARThodox the first and biggest art fair in the North.
