An artful experience awaits visitors to the Power Plant Mall this week as
the country's premier museum of modern Philippine art mounts three
exhibitions and opens AAG Store, a concept museum shop offering museum
publications, gift items and lifestyle apparel by selected young Ateneo
designers at the Ground Level.

"Cross Encounters" features the works of the three winners of this year's
Ateneo Art Awards -- ANNIE CABIGTING, RONALD VENTURA (Recipient of the
Ateneo Art Gallery Studio Residency Grant to Sydney, Australia) and ERIC
ZAMUCO -- together with the nine other short-listed artists: Mariano
Ching, Louie Cordero, Norman Dreo, Rodel Tapaya Garcia, Isa Lorenzo,
Jayson Oliveria, Elmer Roslin, Carlo Angelo Saavedra, and Mac Valdezco.

"A Fine Impression" shows aspects from arguably the finest collection of
original fine prints in a public collection in Southeast Asia, with
etchings, engravings, lithographs and aquatints by Rembrandt van Rijn,
Pablo Picasso, Edouard Manet, Henri Toulouse-Lautrec and Salvador Dali,
leading Filipino printmaker Fil de la Cruz, and expatriates Juvenal Sansó
and Fernando Zóbel.

"Whitewash" re-creates aspects of the Gallery's landmark 2002 exhibition,
investigations notions of whiteness in Philippine art and concepts of
emptiness, brilliance, and the baroque through the works of Ang Kiukok,
Jose Luis Balaguero, Roberto Chabet, Arturo Luz, Lao Lianben, Nena
Saguil, and Fernando Zóbel.

Ateneo Art Gallery at Power Plant Mall is also co-presented by Rockwell
Land Corporation, and YStyle of The Philippine Star, with the support of
Art Petron.

Gallery-at-the-mall hours are 10 am -- 9 pm. For further information,
please contact Francesca Tañada at 0922.3011791. Regular museum hours
resume on 9 August 2005.
