Art Talk: "What is Abstract Art?" by Mary Ann Pernia

The Picasso Boutique Serviced Residences and Art Cabinet Philippines are pleased to present a talk on abstract art by Mary Ann Josette E. Pernia. The talk is a related activity of an ongoing exhibit of works by Eugene Jarque, Lexigius Calyp, Mac Valdezco, Pidge Reyes and Allain Hablo at the Picasso. It is scheduled for Saturday, March 6 from 10:00 am – 12:00 noon. Registration is at the 3F Gallery and the participation fee is P250.

The talk hopes to clarify the concept and give an overview of abstract art. Abstract art is considered the most characteristic form of 20th century art. It is rooted in the reaction towards traditional concepts of art, particularly art as imitation of nature. Its distinct tendencies and the premise behind abstract art have helped create a new reality for perception. Examples from Philippine art on exhibit will be discussed.

Mary Ann Josette E. Pernia graduated from UP Diliman’s Humanities program. She is currently education programmes consultant at the Lopez Memorial Museum and Library and teaches literature, humanities and Philippine Arts subjects at UP Manila.

Gallery hours are Mondays – Fridays from 10:00 am – 7:00 pm and Saturdays from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm. The Picasso Boutique Serviced Residences is at 119 Leviste Street, Salcedo Village, Makati City.
