Treasures

Last Saturday, we attended Stephanie Lopez's opening night for her artwork called Treasures at the Boston Gallery, a space for works of contemporary Filipino artists.

The artist works with sculptural forms. She previously used terra cotta and galvanized iron wire as sculptural media. But this time Steph bended, twisted and curled soft pliable wires to make animal-shaped forms and gathered stone chips, mother of pearl and China crystals as embellishments to create jewelry-like pieces. These animals can be found under the list of endangered species here in the Philippines which are truly treasures worthy of our care and protection.

Me with the artist
Steph's art is a demonstration of her talent, hard work and commitment to her craft. I'm proud to say that she also happens to be my cousin. Our moms are sisters. 

Treasures will be running from August 10 -27, 2013.

  2. She is truly gifted. Wonderful works of art from this young and unassuming lady artist. We should take seriously tne sad future of our land and water animals and birds that are in the endangered specie list.
