THE Casa Gorordo Museum opened the exhibit “Abellana and His Harvest” last Aug. 21.

The exhibit showcased works of Cebuano master painter Martino Abellana’s former students Gabriel “Gabby” Abellana, Edgar “Gary” Carabio, Adeste Deguilmo, Sofronio “Pronnie” dela Cerna, Jayme Francisco, Siegfredo “Fred” Galan, Luther Galicano, Bernardo “Ber” Hermoso, Elena Larrazabal, Palmy Pe-Tudtud, Celso Pepito, Henrietta Piczon, Max Siao, Antonio Vidal, Mariano “Mar” Vidal, Arlene Villaver, Jose “Kimsoy Yap Jr. and Sonia Yrastorza.

The exhibit is the third and last of the series of Abellana retrospective exhibits, which began in November last year.

The 18 artists featured two samples of their works: one created during their apprenticeship with Abellana; the other a recent work yet with the style obviously influenced by Abellana.

The exhibit was opened by Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Inc. Cultural Heritage Program executive director Dr. Jocelyn Gerra and Yap in behalf of the artists.

The ceremonial ribbon was cut by Shangri-La Mactan Resort and Spa general manager Martin Brenner and assistant communications
officer Rica Rellon, and internationally-renowned Cebuano writer Cecilia Manguerra-Brainard.

The exhibit will run until Oct. 30.
