‘Uma sa Negros’
BY CHRYSEE G. SAMILLANO
Bacolod artists Fe and Paul Sumagaysay opened their joint art exhibit, titled “Uma sa Negros” at 18th St. Palapala Restaurant in Bacolod City Saturday, and this will run until September 7.
Their show is part of Ang Handum, a visual art exhibit in memory of Teddy C. Lopez Jr., which will feature the works of different local artists until October.
Paul and Fe are the youngest children of the late Bacolod portrait artist, Lor Sumagaysay.
Their works depict subjects like sugarcane fields, rice fields, farmers or people working, bahay kubo, rivers and beautiful nature found in Bacolod City and the Negros Island.
As time goes by, some areas in Bacolod and Negros have been developed for commercial purposes and converted into subdivisions. So the artists are trying to preserve in their artworks the memories of these places from the past which no longer exists today.
Fe Sumagaysay, who is on her second term as vice president of the Art Association of Bacolod-Negros, has been involved in art activities and events, aside from running her own business in the art.
She and her brother Paul are trying to continue the legacy of their father in the art world.*
