Manila Art 2012 (4th Philippine Contemporary Art Fair)

The Manila Art (Philippine Contemporary Art Fair) , an effusive gathering of galleries showcasing works by contemporary Filipino artists is always an event I prepare and look forward to attend every year. As one of the exhibiting artists for three consecutive years since 2009, I can say that this event gets bigger and better every year. I am deeply honored and excited to be a part of it again this year. Manila Art 2012 (4th PCAF) will be held on October 2-6, 2012 at Hall 4, SMX Convention Center, Pasay City, Philippines. A by-invitation-only Gala night will be held on Oct. 2. The Art Fair will also feature lectures, demos, workshops, an auction of 40 outstanding works, and fundraising art raffle which will benefit deserving scholars of BAGO members and A Better Chance Foundation (ABC).

My works will be displayed in the booth of Galerie Francesca.

Why Every Artist Should Have Their Own Art Blog

I’ve made my blogspot account for almost 2 years now and haven’t got the chance to write or even  post updates regarding my work or anything else that interests me. Being introvert, I found it difficult to write or blog about myself and my work. A few weeks ago, I came upon this blog called through spontaneous searches regarding sites related to art. It’s a site that features articles almost anything regarding art, may it be business advice, art tips/ tutorials, art/artist/artist community website reviews, artist features and etc. One of the articles that I’ve read is “9 Reasons Why Every Artist Should Have Their Own Art Blog” and was convinced on how important it is to have a blog and write about yourself and your work and update your own blog regularly. Here’s an excerpt from the article:

9 Reasons Why Every Artist Should Have Their Own Art Blog

Blogs have really come a long way since they first began as online journals or diaries. Now they’re often used as a means of self-publishing, and are a very practical way of getting information online to reach a large number of people.

Many artists have been successfully blogging for years, whether by writing articles like I do or publishing images of their own artwork on a daily or weekly basis. In fact, I’ve found so many benefits to blogging that if you’re an artist and you don’t have a blog, I believe you’re missing out.
So take a moment and consider these 9 reasons why every artist should have their own art blog. They just might convince you to start an art blog of your own.

Here are the 9 reasons from the article why artist should have a blog:

1. Having an art blog can increase online art sales
2. Art blogging will help you grow as an artist.
3. Blogging can show your personality to the world.
4. You can use your art blog to explain your art.
5. You can express your own views through blogging.
6. Blogging will help track your progress as an artist.
7. You can teach others through your art blog.
8. With a blog, you can link to other art blog, like Emptyeasel.
9. A year from now, you’ll wish you’d started one.
