                            The Ateneo Art Gallery       
                         announces the release of the 
                       ATENEO ART GALLERY CALENDAR 2003

                                *  *  *  *  *  

For its 2003 calendar, the Ateneo Art Gallery, the country's first and only 
modern art museum, commissioned graphic designer Brian Tenorio, Philippine 
correspondent of the Benetton group's COLORS magazine, to showcase its 
distinctive collection of original fine prints and drawings by local and 
international masters. 

Presenting the passage of the year in a manner that celebrates harmony in 
contrasts, the result is a museum-worthy hybrid of minimalist form and 
contemporary function. 

Encased in an aluminum and polyethylene industrial pack, the ATENEO ART GALLERY 
CALENDAR 2003 reveals an aspect of the university art museum's rich and diverse 
trove of graphic art spanning four centuries, depicting a dramatic fusion of 
talent and style.

Faithfully reproduced in demi-poster size, these drawings, lithographs, 
woodcuts, aquatints, etchings and engravings by Pablo Picasso, Rembrandt van 
Rijn, Salvador Dali, Juvenal Sansó, Fil dela Cruz, and Romulo Olazo, among 
others, manifest qualities best ascribed to the fullness of visual experience: 
the linear softened by the organic, light fathoming dark, mesmeric patterns 
emerging from seeming chaos, hard edges tempered by sensuous textures.

Complementing this theme, months and dates are arranged in a grid-like fashion, 
and yet are spaced invariably to pulsate with life. The days of the week dot 
the length of each page with an underlying pattern of ebb and flow - a 
rendition made as if having something to say about the cadence of time and the 
mutable nature of the creative act, a series of unplanned occurrences trekking  
a familiar path. 

Attractively priced at Php 350.00, and printed in a limited edition of 500, the 
art public is warmly invited to send notice of its interest via e-mail, or by 
phone: 426-6488 (direct) or 426-6001, extension 4160. Copies will be available 
for inspection at the Gallery beginning Wednesday, 23 October 2003.
