Cross Encounters, an exhibition of work produced by 2005 Ateneo Art Awards
Winner Ronald Ventura, opens on 25 May at the Ateneo Art Gallery and runs
through 21 July 2006.

Ronald Ventura, who won last year's Ateneo Art Awards along with Annie
Cabigting and Eric Zamuco, was chosen as the Inaugural Recipient of the
Ateneo Art Gallery Sydney Studio Residency Grant. Cross Encounters is his
response to his visit to Australia in November last year, dominated by the
color yellow, the images of dogs and the influence of street signages.
With the tension of alarm and precariousness, Ventura's works include
handpainted sculptures, paintings, sketches, toy figurines and even a
riot shield.

Nominations for the 2006 Ateneo Art Awards are being accepted until 31 May
2006 from the Jury, public gallery directors (commercial and
non-commercial), professional visual artists and art educators residing
in the Philippines. The nomination forms may be downloaded at

Awards, please contact Clarissa Chikiamco, 2006 Ateneo Art Awards Project
