The all-Filipino migrants group of art enthusiasts, Guhit Kulay, has marked a milestone with the opening of its art exhibit at the Consulate on Dec. 8, to mark International Migrants Day. Deputy Consul General Germinia Usudan cut the ribbon at the opening rites. The art exhibit, the first by a migrants group in the Consulate, will run till Dec 15.

Community members examine the works of art.
About 100 people attended the opening of the landmark exhibit titled “Obra: Likhang Sining at Galing ng Migranteng Pilipino.” The day’s highlight was a coloring contest in two cat-egories: adults and children. For Dec 15, a face painting contest is set to be held.

The works came in various genres.

According to GK president Noemi Manguerra, the group members now number 30. It took them nearly six months of preparation – given that most of them are off only once a week – to mount the exhibit, which features not just paintings and sketches, but also sculpture, photography, solar art work, self-designed and sewn gowns, and fashion accessories.

GK was formed two years ago by a group that attended an art workshop at the Consulate given by Pintura Circle, an art group made up of Filipino Hong Kong residents. The co-founders were, apart from Manguera, Cristina Cayat, Cecil Eduarte and Ruby Timtim.

The group’s membership grew rapidly following a series of art jamming sessions organized by GK to encourage like-minded migrants to gather and give vent to their passion. Since then, they have been invited to hold their own art exhibits, notably by groups such as Enrich and NIDO Hong Kong.

In the first quarter of last year, GK was among participating groups of artists in “Beyond Myself,” a traveling exhibit co-organized by Enrich and was held in London, Manila and Hong Kong.
