I just spent a few days in Hong Kong at ART HK 11- (HK International Art Fair) what is being considered the leading Art Fair in Asia. The 5- day long event was at the HK Convention Center and its collection of more than 260 galleries from 38 countries attracted quite a group of collectors, curators, international galleries, museum professionals, and those who just love art. I am happy to say that with the work of 18 Filipino artists on display, it also provided a great forum for people to learn more about Filipino art in particular. There were 2 Filipino galleries and 3 international galleries featuring Filipino contemporary artists.

Manila-based Silverlens Gallery had a mix of paintings, sculptures and photographs by Patricia Eustaquio, Mariano Ching, Elaine Navas, Nona Garcia, Luis Lorenzana and Frankie Callaghan.
