ADZU alumni Icelle Borja is one of the 21 participating artists of the on-going art exhibit, “Alumni Art Exhibit: Past to Present,” at the Gallery of the Peninsula and the Archipelago of Ateneo de Zamboanga University. The exhibit that opened last November 9 will last until the first week of December.
This artistic event coordinated by the Alumni Relations and Development Center with the full support of ADZU Alumni Association has a noble purpose. The sale proceeds of the art works will go to the scholarship funds of the university. It has 58 art works on display for sale. Icelle is selling 3 from her precious art collections.
Alumni Vice-President Engr. George Ledesma, who welcomed the guests, said the event is not only showcasing the artistic talents of the alumni. “Art is a great leveler, it can draw us into their world and give them the tools to understand how they live or they think in a much deeper way. Through art, they are able to show more about themselves. Art ties people together,” Engr. Ledesma expounded.
Presently, Icelle is busy traveling around the country as a Research Associate of the National Museum. She is also doing commissioned work for the Tetuan Parish history and the Tetuan Historiography. I thank her for inviting me to this art event.
Don’t miss it. Entrance is free for the general public.
