The Ateneo Art Gallery moves to its new home in Areté.  The Upper Ground
Floor Galleries – Chung Te Gallery, Ching Tan Gallery, and Tanmantiong
Gallery – are venues allocated for the AAG Permanent Collection.  Its
inaugural exhibition focuses on the growth of the AAG Collection through
the generosity of various donors.  This exhibit also aims to highlight on
the role of philanthropy which not only sustained the growth of the AAG but
also made possible the realization of the newly-constructed Areté.

>From Fernando Zobel, whose donation to AdMU led to the founding of the
Ateneo Art Gallery in 1960, to succeeding donations from Ateneo alumni and
visual artists, the AAG Collection has grown into what is now considered an
important collection of post-war Philippine modern art, Social Realist art
from the 1970s and 1980s, and contemporary works.  The exhibit will be
divided into decades with each section featuring a list of names of all
donors and a selection of works from each period.  During its one-year run,
works within each section will be rotated to ensure that all donors are
represented and their donations exhibited.

Elmer Borlongan, one of the leading contemporary artists today, holds a
retrospective of his works on paper from the 1970s when he started
attending art workshops until the present.  Drawing continues to be the
foundation of Borlongan’s creative process. Whether intended as studies for
paintings or as final works, the spontaneity of drawings capture the
artist’s approach in concept development, composition, and representation.
Featured works will include drawings in pencil, charcoal, pen and ink, and
watercolor and selected paintings from the artist’s collection and private
