Searching for art galleries to visit this vacation

The family decided to make good use of the summer vacation by visiting art galleries especially the ones that are easy to locate. Besides the National Museum, we want to try to visit a couple of art galleries that I’ve seen from this website. I’m also posting a couple of photos from the site (credit to the owners).

Art galleries, museums, parks are just a few interesting and inexpensive places to visit to celebrate Mother’s Day.

The works of National Artist Benedicto Cabrera’s “Larawan” and “Sabel” series can now be viewed at the National Museum of Fine Arts at the Old Legislative Building in Manila.

Hopefully, the kids and I will be able to check the museum this weekend, a sort of treat to our birthday girl, Naomi. 🙂

Flashback Friday: Ascencion Church in Villa Escudero

The pink church. This is the Ascencion Church found inside the vast Villa Escudero Plantations and Resort in San Pablo City, Laguna. It was a Spanish-style church and being used as a museum. My daughter took this picture during her educational field trip five years ago.
