One of my goals this year was to exhibit a Baybayin art gallery at a venue here in the San Francisco Bay Area. That didn’t happened due to a few factors:
I wanted to hold a screening of a Baybayin movie from the Philippines. After numerous emails to the director over the past year, no commitments from their camp. I felt that it would draw people to the event being that Baybayin is relatively unknown.
I would probably would have to rent out space to hold this event. Without the movie screening, the draw might be minimal.
There aren’t that many Baybayin artists around. If they are, I haven’t found them online yet. in 2009, if your not online, you unfortunately don’t exist.
With the physical exhibition on-hold, the next best thing is to have an online gallery. Launching in Feb 2010, the site will feature artwork from Baybayin aficionados.
How it works:
- Each month will feature a maximum of 10 artists
- Each month will have a theme (1st one is 2010)
- Artists can sell their work keeping 100% of sales
- FREE guidance of Baybayin so that artists who don’t know the script can learn
