|Caballete Artist's gallery Logo|
People used to get excited to go to a gallery, meet an artist in person and experience a work of art. Nowadays, since almost every image an artist makes is now available on the internet, more people can view the work online and decide if they like it enough to leave their house to visit the gallery, or attend the opening reception, or just stay in to watch another night of reality television. But sometimes, it's really worth your time when you come and visit one. And such was the case when I came to see Caballete Artist's Gallery along that bustling Kamias road. It may be something that you'll really have to travel to since it's not typically located in commercial districts or malls, I can assure you it's worth all the trip and effort.
Caballete stems from the Spanish word for an artist's 'easel'. The gallery was born out of one's man passion to start a collection in the late 80's and collect the best of Philippine visual arts. He wanted to showcase the collection he has amassed to make everyone be proud what the Filipino artists have to offer. The said gallery also opens its doors to amateur artists. The goal of the owner is to place the Filipino art pieces into a pedestal.
