Back at it again with yet another art fair and this time it's Hue & Me: Embracing Art in Life! All thanks to ArtisteSpace for making this kind of event happen and of course the talented artists from different kinds of arts.
Hue & Me with its tagline "Embracing Art in Life" is an art fair that touches people in different ages; children, youth, young professionals, and elderly. Hue & Me's goal is "people will have awareness, understanding, and realization of what art can do to their lives."
Ron (my +1 as always, lol) and I went on the first day of the event, July 8, 2017. It was a Saturday so we expected that SM Aura Premier and SMX Convention Center will be crowded with mall and art fair goers. To be honest, it was my first time going to SM Aura Premier and I didn't know that there was an SMX Convention Center there. I was excited both for the event and for me finally going to SM Aura, hahaha!
I must say that Hue & Me art fair is really for all ages. I was so happy to see not just paintings and sculptures, but there's also a toy collectibles section for kids and kids at heart; not only brush calligraphy, but there's also doodle arts from Doodle Art Enthusiasts; not only old but historical pieces, but there's also modern ones. This art fair is really not just for art-inclined people nor just for elder people who has deep understanding in arts, but it is also for us who doesn't have any talent in arts and also for kids who are yet to discover and still discovering their gifts in arts.
Aside from art exhibits, there's also talks and workshops from different speakers/artists. When we were there, Lei Melendres of Doodle Art Enthusiasts was having her free doodle workshop with young participants.
There's also a section there called Piece for Peace for Marawi where artists and even visitors can paint artworks for the benefit of Marawi. How cool is that?
If you read my previous post about Art Mod Fair 2017 and you are wondering if we're surprised to see liquor exhibits and Angono exhibitors in Hue & Me, this is to say that we're not surprised anymore. LOL. I was really expecting to see almost same exhibitors since this event was organized by the same organizer of Art Mod Fair. Yes, we saw exhibitors from Angono such as Kuta Ng Angono. We also saw the liquor exhibitors we saw from Art Mod Fair and thankfully they didn't invite us for another free taste session, haha!
An art fair with toys? YES. These are my favorite from the toy collectibles section. The legos are from AFOL MNL Lego Users Group. According to the exhibitor, all of the lego they exhibit was created by them; they didn't buy pre-made lego from the market and then build it. They literally created everything from scratch.
I also love these miniature or should I say scale model. The Jollibee and the Japanese house got me so much. They look so cute! Hands down to those people who create scale model like these!
After an hour of roaming around and taking photos, we concluded it and left the SMX Convention Center fully satisfied. Ron and I then celebrated the weekend with trying out lots of food and me doing a retail therapy. (It's TREAT YO' SELF day, okay!!!)
I'm so thankful to see and experience this kind of event. Art fairs give me so much inspiration to pursue the line of art I'm doing. It also gives me more fuel for creativity.
