The much awaited Covers Project of the Art In Site Magazine will now launch at 7:00pm tonight, January 17th at the Ayala Museum.
The invite I received read:
"...Greetings from Art in Site!
What seemed like an eternity to publish has been accomplished. The 'baby' has been delivered! We thank you for your patience in riding it out with us. Please find attached to this email our invitation for you to attend Art in Site Magazine's launch on January 17 at 7pm, to be held at the Ayala Museum. All artwork submitted by Filipino artists from around the world will be on display.
Your very much-appreciated participation and contribution were chosen by a panel of judges and will grace the cover(s) of the magazine. Your magazine will be sold at the launch to kick off the start of our fund-raising drive to cover expenses of the magazine's publication and printing costs. The rest will be applied to the future Manila Center for the Arts..." Naks!
In a nutshell, Art in Site (AIS) Magazine is for, by and about artists. Art in Site Magazine is not just any arts magazine. It is the literary vehicle for what will soon be the Manila Center for the Arts. The Center shall be a convening venue that will serve as a cooperative for Filipino visual and literary artists. It will support all Filipino artists, whether in the Philippines or abroad. The magazine will be distributed in the Philippines and the U.S. to promote and showcase our untapped brilliant and artistic talent.
I have contributed 2 of my pressed botanical artworks to the site and well, of course more than excited to attend the launch. My main obstacle unfortunately is my work at 11pm. Hope that the launch starts on time :-)
