Fourth year students of AB-Multimedia Arts had their external exhibit called Chiaroscuro: A Tale of Opposites at the 2nd floor of the LRI Design Plaza in Makati City recently. The class, headed by Kristen Gabutero, showcased their artworks done in different media as a requirement for their Exhibit class.The title “chiaroscuro” is derived from the Italian words “chiaro” meaning light, and “scuro” meaning dark. It is a technique in the visual arts used to describe a strong contrast of shades and highlights.
The exhibit artworks featured fairytale characters and their alter-egos as interpreted by the artists. The 35 artworks displayed in the gallery used various media such as 3D, Digital Painting, Vector Art, Traditional Art and Photography. The ribbon cutting ceremony was attended by Dr. Felma C Tria, AB Multimedia Arts Dean, Mr. Joey Reboredo and his class of 2nd year MMA students, as well as family and friends. The exhibit ran from March 6-9 and was open from 10AM-6PM.
