Toledo artists group showcases ‘Hinulawan Colours’

THE Toledo Neo Artists Group (TNAG), a newly organized group of visual artists based in Toledo City, Cebu, is holding its second exhibit dubbed “Hinulawan Colours” at the SM Seaside City Cebu.

“Hinulawan’’ is a contraction of two Visayan words, hinaguang and bulawan (hin+ulawan = hinulawan). It was later changed to Toledo when the Spaniards arrived in the place, replicating that of a town in Spain.

The second exhibit is in cooperation with Cebu Artists Inc. and with the support of the Toledo City Government and TNAG artist mentor, Maestro Orly Ypon, an internationally recognized artist.

The group’s debut exhibition was held at the Toledo City Mega Dome on Dec. 7, 2022 during the inaugural ceremony for the holiday festivities, marking it as a milestone for the group’s introduction to the community and its recognition by the Toledo City Government.

All works in both exhibitions feature mundane sceneries of the group’s hometown, portraying reality as they view it while displaying the many styles and media that showcase each artist’s different approach to his/her craft.

TNAG is a collaborative organization of artists with shared ideologies working together to support and promote art works through shared workspace, materials, promotional efforts, advocacy and communal activities.

TNAG aims to showcase the skills of a selection of homegrown artists, both emerging and established, who merit exposure to a wider audience. While thematically highlighting their roots, such artists promote interest in Toledo City through their creative work.

Explore the “Hinulawan Colours” on display at the 3rd floor, City Wing of SM Seaside City Cebu near the Ice Skating Rink. The exhibit will run until Jan. 8, 2023. (PR)
