I got an invitation early this week to attend an art exhibit opening. My ninang (god mother) is having a one-woman exhibit featuring her water color art works. It’s at the Gallery Joaquin about 10 mins from where I live.
The invitation had a note which said that she was inviting me to be one of her special guests. From what my mom said, I just thought that special guest meant that because I was one of her god child that she just wanted all her god children to be there. I thought nothing big of it. So I went with my mom and dad.
To my surprise when I got there, she said that I together with the other sons of her close friends would be the one to cut the ribbon to open the exhibit. Imagine my surprise!
So it was really a good thing that I went, and went almost on time for that matter. I was privileged enough to be asked to cut the ribbon.
The exhibit went well. It showcased her water color artwork composed of a flower series as well as a Koi series. Seeing the artworks and being able to support her was a great motivation to go. A big plus was being entertained by a nice band called Rockin Revival accompanied by an extremely gifted young violinist. I think her name is Gail Ramos. If I’m not mistaken.
She must have been 13 or so.. She couldn’t have been older than 16. Yet she played with a mastery beyond her age. Being good at the violin is great already but she also played the flute. She was equally good at it as well.
A night filled with good artwork, good music and friends. How can you go wrong with that?
