Caballete Artist gallery was born out of a passion, a passion of one man to start a collection in the late 1980’s and collect the best of Philippine visual art, to showcase this collection and show the best of what the Filipino artist past and present have to offer.
Caballete which is Spanish for easel aims to cradle Filipino art pieces and place them in a pedestal where they belong, to emphasize talent rather than the dictates of commercialism. In the age online and mall shopping of art pieces where prices are driven by the extra cost of profit the middleman has to earn to cover his overhead.
Caballete Artist Gallery aims to be the venue where would be aspiring artist and just plain art lovers can be hands on, through weekly activity tagged as an Art Lab, where a lead artist or an art master can share and guide a group the rudiments of creating masterpieces using various art medium.
Various forms of artistic talent will also be featured and encouraged in our venue, talents in music and the literary world would also be a weekly staple.
The Art gallery aims to encourage groups of friends from all ages to just hang out and witness the visuals and at the same time learn the roots of Filipino art heritage through the sharing of information from art practitioners, a place where creative minds meet.
