Dear Friends and Family,
Don’t miss the Xavier Art Fest 2 this Saturday, October 1, 2016 from 11 am to 8 pm at the Angelo King MPC.
The country is currently enjoying a vibrant art scene. This can be credited to some of the renowned art galleries and art groups that we have invited to display their affordable art works to the Xavier community. Participating in this year’s Xavier Art Fest are Art Circle Gallery, Art Photo, Art Underground, Blanc Gallery, Cuenca Art Consultancy, Galleria Astra, Gallery Big, GrupoKwadro, My Little Art Place, Quattrocento, Ricco Renzo Gallery, Studio 1616, Vessel Gallery, and Vongarde Art Gallery.
Learn and appreciate art while you eat, listen to live music and join the fun activities available throughout the day. Food lovers will be overwhelmed by the array of choices from Ribs Manila, Standford & Shaw, The Dog Pound, Earle’s Delicatessen, Wackies, The Cheese Steak Shop, Shawarma Bros., Take Root, Bo’s Coffee, Cool Brian and La Lola Churreria. If you have ever wanted to have a portrait done, make sure to drop by and ask one of the talented artists from Grupo Kwadro who will be doing an On-The-Spot portrait. For the early birds, the first 30 students to register starting at 11 am will receive a free 3-hour workshop from 2 to 5 pm courtesy of My Little Art Place.
The highlight of this event will be the awarding of the winners of the 2nd XS Art Competition. This year’s theme is “In omnibus Deum videre” (To see God in everything). The competition was opened to students from Grades 1 to 12, siblings, teachers, parents and alumni. Prizes and trophies await category winners.
Judging of entries will commence at 1:30 pm while the awarding ceremony will begin at 3:30 pm. All student artworks will be auctioned off starting 3:30 pm. Proceeds will go directly to the Para Kay ‘Cher program (a medical assistance program for qualified retired teachers). After the awarding ceremony, sit back and enjoy the performances of talented Xaver
There will be raffle prizes every hour but only one lucky visitor will bring home a Xavier 60th Jubilee Limited Edition Chronograph Swatch wristwatch to be raffled off by XS batch ’86 at 5:30 pm. To join, visitors must register at the entrance. Presence is required to win a raffle prize.
This event would not have been possible without the generous support of our sponsors: 81 Xavier Residence; Akari and Davies Paints. For more information and updates, please visit www.facebook.com/Xavierartfest or contact the AAXS office at 727-3329.
