Nov 6, 2018 | News, Tertiary Department | 0 comments

Offering painting course in Davao under the Fine Arts program, PWC continues to immerse its students in the field and at the same time promote and encourage public support of local arts.

Artworks by students majoring in painting and visual communication are gathered in one place to be showcased in Salon des Refusés fashion from November 6-15, 2018 at Morning Light Gallery, Quirino Avenue. 

Salon des Refusés, French for “exhibition of rejects”, was an art exhibition approved by Napoleon III in 1863 showcasing art pieces rejected by the official Paris salon. Similarly, the students exhibit works they have submitted as entries in national competitions from 2016 to the present that unfortunately did not land the grand prize, although some have been acknowledged as finalists.

Leading the pack of the talented student-artists are Lawrence Tulio, Eloisa Sanson, and Dave Ibao who have been previously awarded in multiple competitions.

Other exhibiting artists include Shai Ancheta, Paulo Capiña, Neica Garcia, Nichole Gabuya, JP Patlingrao, Jeferyl Fulmaran, Warley Panda-og, Kate Labio, Ainie Condesa, Cassandra Tee, and Clyde Laudato. 

The exhibit features 18 works, among which are 2 sculptural pieces while the rest are all paintings. Most of the pieces are up for sale.

On Saturday, November 10, 2018, there will be an art bar for Visual Communication and Industrial Design students to sell their creations and a resin manipulation workshop with slots for 12 participants aged 10-16 years old. 

The event has been upon the initiative and efforts of BFA Painting program chair Wilfred Dexter Tañedo, who wanted to give recognition to such outstanding works and motivate the students in the pursuit of their passion. He has also expressed hopes for the program to conduct more of similar endeavors in the future.


PWC’s flagship program, Bachelor of Fine Arts allows students to major in Industrial Design, Fashion Design, Visual Communication, and Painting course in Davao. [Click here to learn more about Fine Arts course offerings.]
