The event was the first of its kind hereabouts and it was a most welcome treat to the house-weary, activity-hungry and art-loving populace. Yes, the Cebu Design Week/Visayas Art Fair at Montebello Villa Hotel provided color and excitement to our Queen City rendered lethargic by the pandemic for almost two years now. A total of 29 galleries and art groups from Regions 6, 7, 8 and the NCR showcased over 1,000 artworks. Artistinal makers/producers took part in the fair.
A big thank you to the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), Cebu Design Week Inc., the Office of the Presidential Assistant for the Visayas (OPAV), Sacred Heart School for Boys Batch 1985 Foundation and the Cebu Furniture Industries Foundation for organizing the Visayas Art Fair.
