Hot on the heels of August’s successful retrospective of National Artist Federico Aguilar Alcuaz at Gateway Mall in Cubao, Galerie Stephanie is proud to extend the display of the late artist’s works in a show entitled “Abstrakt”, at Galerie Stephanie 1B Park Plaza Building, E. Rodriguez Avenue, Libis, Quezon City from September 8 to 22, 2011. This exhibition allows people who missed the critically-acclaimed show at the Araneta Center to view the works of a heavyweight in the pantheon of Philippine art. “Abstrakt” follows the intense interest in the life and works of the late artist, who passed away earlier this year. The oeuvre of Aguilar Alcuaz is unqiue in its diversity and variation. While being a master in the bold brushstrokes and en plein aire landscapes of expressionist sensibilities, Aguilar Alcuaz is also a devout Moderrnist, working with different material to produce tapestries, mosaics, and abstract paintings. Due to the public’s demand to learn more of the seminal National Artist, Galerie Stephanie will also be hosting a lecture by the eminent art-scholar Dr. Reuben Canete on September 10 at 2:00PM. Also, to answer questions and quell curiosity regarding the authenticity of Aguilar Alcuaz works, authentication sessions will be conducted throughout the day of September 10 from 10AM to 6PM-by the manager of the estate of the late artist, his eldest son Christian Aguilar.
