‘BEHIND Mystic Strength,’ Carlo Ramos Dizon.

Tarlaqueño artists take center stage at the first Tarlac Art Fair from 1 October to 13 November at Diwa ng Tarlac. The exhibit organized by the Tarlac provincial government is a satellite exhibition of ManilART — the country’s premier annual national art fair.

‘IN Plain Sight,’ Judeo Herrera.

‘GENERATION’S Degeneration,’ Mark Lander Garcia.

‘WINGS of Salvation,’ Carlo Ramos Dizon.

With this year’s ManilART theme “Continuing Legacy,” Tarlac showcases the province’s collective achievement in culture and the arts. Local artists banded together to collectively represent the best of what the region has to offer with a diverse and abundant lineup of paintings, photos, pottery and local crafts.

Among the artists who contributed works in their chosen medium are Judeo Herrera, Harlem Sunga, Carlo Ramos Dizon and Mark Lander Garcia.

‘WE are Part of the Puzzle,’ Harlem Sunga.

‘JUAN Gal, Juan Nation,’ Harlem Sunga.

“Through the first-ever Tarlac Art Fair, we aim to acquaint the public with our province’s take on Philippine contemporary art,” says Tarlaqueña artist and organizer Melissa Yeung-Yap. “With the support of our Talarqueño artists, the collection is set to showcase our unique vernacular, rich history and the heritage of our people. Hopefully, this endeavor can promote more regional artists and also inspire younger artists to get into the arts.”

‘PROGRESSION Regression,’ Mark Lander Garcia.

‘TAHARALAN,’ John Boriz Dee Layug.

ManilART2021 and its satellite sites are co-presented by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts, ManilArt Foundation and Bonafide Art Galleries Organization for the annual Museum and Galleries Month.
