Artis-Artisan Bazaar 2016

Hello, everyone! You're all invited to the Artis-Artisan Bazaar hosted by my friend Marie Gutierrez, who is opening her lovely home to the public for this intimate one-day affair! This will be held on Sunday, February 7, 2016, at Beverly Hills Subdivision, Antipolo, Rizal.

Coming from a successful first run back in December 2014, the event hopes "to bring together artists and 'artis-artisans'--those who are longtime artists alongside those who are just beginning their craft. It is a day meant to inspire, provide an intimate venue in Antipolo for people to meet, mingle and learn," Marie says. The day will have various art and craft demonstrations, mini workshops, as well as goods and food for sale.

For those interested, I am scheduled for a watercolor demo from 11 AM to 12 NN on this day! Instead of my usual floral and botanical work, I will be painting a scene this time around.

If you're looking for a unique, cozy, and art-filled experience set against the backdrop of nature (and a gorgeous, inspiring home to boot); or if you're simply looking for a slow, refreshing weekend experience away from Metro Manila (but still not too far from it), then this one's definitely for you!

Alongside the lineup of art/craft/music demos (plus an all-day pottery party!), here's a list of artists, entrepreneurs, and creatives who'll be selling their goods on this day:

Do let me know if you're coming! Hope to see you there!
