KALIBO, Aklan – The culture and arts foundation incorporated (ACAFI) and the provincial government here will feature a one-man painting exhibit entitled “Pinta Gracia” and the Lezo pottery at the capitol – in an aim to introduce the arts and culture of the province to the locals.
The exhibit, which will run this month until December, will include some hand-painted textiles of visual artist Mario Aldeguer Perucho Jr.
The ACAFI also formed the Tumandok it Akean Performing Arts to showcase the intangible cultural heritage of the province.
The “Tumandoks” will have their maiden show titled “Pagdungaw: Glimpse of the Past” at the ABL Sports and Cultural Center here on Dec. 19.
ACAFI chairman Albert Menez said the show is a unique mingling of traditional repertoire of Aklanon dances, songs and collective theater play.
Last month, the ACAFI with the provincial government mounted the “Aklan Ruins+Heritage” exhibit – an effort focusing and bringing to life the historic sites and ruins found in the province.
The exhibit took the audience to a deep insight and visual pilgrimage of rarely seen, framed and stunning photographs of heritage churches, cultural landscapes, decade-old houses and shrines.(With a report from Akean Forum/PN)
