How do you feel about this story?


The Araneta Group’s J. Amado Araneta Foundation (JAAF) and Gateway Gallery unite 16 local artists for A Time To Build, a group art exhibit for the victims of Typhoon Odette. It features 30 artworks, with 1 sculpture and 29 two-dimensional works such as photos, ink drawings, and multi-media works.

The title was inspired by the Biblical verse Ecclesiastes 1-3: “To everything, there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, time to kill and a time to heal, a time to break down and a time to build.”

Participating artists for A Time to Heal are Gari Apolonio, Glenda Carlota, Diane Romero, Jenny Cortes, Joseph Espino, Lea Zoraina Lim, Anna Lumpas, Ian Maigan, Perfecto Mercado, Chressa Yee Rufon, Elisa Certeza Rufon, Wilfredo Rufon, Peter Samillano, Noel San Andres, Pete Velasquez, and Wencyl Mallari.

The exhibit is open for public viewing at the Gateway Gallery (5th Floor Gateway Tower, Araneta City) from December 24, 2021 to January 4, 2022 (including weekends and holidays). The Exhibit Catalog is available upon request, and proceeds of artwork sales will be donated to the typhoon victims.
