In this debut group exhibit entitled "Invitation", fifteen artists, all in their first year in the
UP College of Fine Arts, meet with the muse and present the product of this engagement.
Forming the framework of this exhibit is the challenge to interpret the poem "The
Invitation," a prose poem written in 1999 by Oriah Mountain Dreamer who is an author of
inspirational prose-poem and international best-selling books, The Invitation, The Dance
and The Call: Discovering Why You Are Here.
In accomplishing this task, each of the artists have to drawn on their knowledge and skills
so far acquired and honed under the Visual Perception class under Thirteen Artists
Awardee Jonathan Olazo.
Perception is a crucial skill in tackling the challenge, specifically in this context and in art-
making in general; one poem but fifteen different ways of interpreting it, fifteen different
ways of seeing the world.
Fifteen different manifestations of the muse.
Invitation runs from September 23-26, 2008 at the Corredor Gallery at the UP College of
Fine Arts. The opening cocktails start at 6pm, September 23.

I. "facebooked" me and asked if Oktoberfest was meant for us, being both born in October, we'd like to think that the beerfest was scheduled for us. But we both, and we all do, know that it is not. But whatever.
A local beer company here in the Philippines have set up tradition and staged a similar feast.
I was lucky enough to cover the event last night in Pasig. A. was orignally scheduled to cover it. I didn't think I would go but I must admit I had planned on going despite having a work sched from 4-12mn ahehehehe. But A. fell ill and promptly the desk deployed me to replace her. WAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
So there I was, I made it through the throng of people that lined up the street at the back of SM Megamll all the way through Julia Vargas St. and San Miguel Ave. where the main stage was set up.
And Third Eye Blind.
Man, the last time I remember listening to their songs was when I was in early college. Good to hear their songs again (after being sidetracked to other music preferences in the years that followed).
The band debuted a new song, forgot the title but the first few melodies sounded a little bit like Maroon 5's "This Love" which I LIKE! hehehehe.
Will post photos soon. R. hijacked my cam to her weekend getaway. Dang. :(
