MaARTe Artisan Fair: An Exhibition and Sale by Outstanding Filipino Artisans
Renzelle Ann Palma | Aug 15, 2013
Bazaars and different trunk shows are set to conquer the streets and malls of the Metro once again. With the Christmas season fast approaching, people are starting to look for the perfect holiday gifts for their love ones. But if you are tired of the same bazaars offering typical products, here is an artisan fair that will showcase distinct artisanal products for that one of a kind shopping experience.
MaARTe Artisan Fair, a project of the Museum Foundation of the Philippines, Inc., gathered participants who produce unique, handcrafted, indigenous and artisanal products to showcase their work. The event aims be a platform and support art pieces created by some of the country’s finest artisans.
The pieces that are set to be showcased in the MaARTe Artisan Fair are carefully crafted and made with passion and love from the artisans. Each participant has a story to tell- from how their craft started, their social advocacy to their tangible passion that they have for their work.
Expect beautiful art and museum quality products not commonly found in malls and bazaars at the MaARTe Artisan Fair on August 23-25, Friday-Sunday at the Rockwell Tent, Rockwell Center, Makati City.
