Cecila Arguelles Gonzaga, Mommy Ting to her family and Tita Ting to teenagers who have participated in the Days With the Lord Retreat, celebrated her 85th birthday on Nov. 22, at the family-owned Hda. Kaftreess in Brgy. Iglau-an, Murcia in Negros Occidental.

She marked the occasion with a simple celebration with son Anton, grandson Jaime, brothers Baging and Toots and their wives Lin and Bebo, her nieces Malyn and Birdie, and other members of the family.

With diocesan priests, Fr. Greg Patiño, Fr. Mao Buenafe, Fr. Rene Gaylon, Fr. Arnel Pabalate and Deacon Rev. Theloi Gomez celebrating the mass, Ting’s 85th birthday reflected her faith and charitable ways.

“I am grateful to our priests and deacon who, despite their very busy schedules, came over to celebrate with me. I am thankful to the members of my family, the CWL and the DWL facilitators,” Ting said.*

‘Exceptional Sanso’ in Bacolod

Charlie’s Art Gallery in Bacolod City will present “Exceptional Sanso”, a collection of extraordinary works by the Presidential Medal of Merit awardee, Juvenal Sanso, in celebration of his 90th birthday, a press release from the gallery said.

The exhibit will open at Charlie’s Art Gallery, Italia Restaurant, on December 14 and will run until January 14, 2020. “Exceptional Sanso” pays homage to the master by presenting a world class collection of landscapes and flower works, from the 1960s to the 1980s, considered to be the prime of his career.

With over 70 years in his artistic career, Sanso is one of the most recognized and decorated Philippine artists. Born in 1929, his family migrated to Manila in 1932 to escape the rise of fascism in Europe. He studied Art at the University of the Philippines after the war, and won two grand prizes in the Art Association of the Philippines art competition in 1951, prompting him to refine his craft in Italy and then Paris, where he found that expressionism better suited his works.

A pioneering printmaker, his works have been exhibited in galleries in France, Spain, the UK, the USA, Mexico, and various cities in the Philippines. His work is collected by museums, like the Metropolitan Museum of New York, the Cleveland Art Museum, the Philadelphia Art Museum, Musee d’ Art Moderne Paris, Museo del Arte Contemporeneo Madrid, and the leading art museums of the Philippines, the press release said.

“Exceptional Sanso” gives a glimpse of the person behind the art, who overcame the tragedies of war through finding tranquility and peace in painting. The curated collection is the product of careful sourcing by the gallery, and each work is authenticated with the new Certificate of Authenticity by Fundacion Sanso, with security features that deter forgeries.

With the prices of his works soaring, and the supply dwindling, “Exceptional Sanso” is a rare chance that every Sanso collector must take. For inquiries, those interested may contact info@charliesartgallery.com, the press release added.*
