Amid lockdown restrictions and health & safety precautions this year, we're still waiting for the day when we finally get to step inside a museum or gallery again. For now, we're settling (quite happily!) for virtual tours like Art in the Park Online 2021 on its 15th anniversary.

 

Mark your calendars! It's eight full days of art featuring 60 exhibitors and more than 6,000 artworks by hundreds of established and up-and-coming Filipino artists via artinthepark.ph, running from February 21st until February 28th.

A Focus on Pottery featuring Jon & Tessy Pettyjohn

Jon Pettyjohn is considered a pioneer of contemporary Philippine ceramics. For the past 38 years, he has worked passionately in the realm of high-fire Asian-style ceramics.
