Update: The event had a successful opening last Monday. It was opened by Sen. Edgardo J. Angara, NCCA Chairman Usec. Vilma N. Labrador, NCCA Executive Director Cecile Guidote-Alvarez. Other national government officials also attended. Vice Mayor Pilot Bihasa also attended. There was a short program at the NCCA Lobby shortly after the opening and viewing of exhibits. It was hosted by Ricky Quezon-AvanceÃ±a who even made a shoutout to Batangbaler. Most of the artists who participated in the gallery were also present. Local star-singer Jaylorie Delos Santos and his band provided the live music for the occassion. The exhibit will run until the end of April. On May, it will be transferred to the MalacaÃ±ang Gallery. Standby for the photos as i will still borrow them from the other Batang Aurora Camera Club members.
And special shoutout to the two readers of this blog who attended the opening – Pong and Aian of Blue Island. Rokenrol!
