“Other than being described as a fast-growing city, Calbayog is known as a city with many identities such as the city of waterfalls, third largest city in the Philippines and a city of talented people. Thus, the presence of the CCVAA, Inc. is a living testimony that Calbayog is a city of talented people. The presence of national artists as resource speakers in the on-going Alugahi Workshop in the city’s Plaza Ibarra is an indicator that the city is a place of potential artists. ” Rosalado said in her speech.

Being a Psychologist, art lover and advocate, Rosalado believes that artwork is one of the very good forms of expression as it reflects the inner self of the individual. She called on the parents to encourage and be supportive to children to express themselves in any form of art, be it painting, singing, dancing, composing, and the like.

Meanwhile, Jamaican tourist Pao Willis now living in the United Kingdom, whose attention and curiousity was drawn to an abstract painting of Mr. Val Villanueva shared experience having worked with people who have been incarcerated or locked-up using abstract painting as therapy to allow ventilation of emotions.

“When inmates paint abstract we always ask them where did it come from.” What was the reason behind that? I got curious about this particular painting because it is abstract. I just wanted to know what was in the mind or how exactly the painter felt at the time when he worked on this?
Painter Villanueva on the other hand, who said he is at his best painting mood during the night when everything is still and quiet, described his painting as pigments of rocks piled in the form of a human being and that the painting is simply a non-figurative abstract type of work.
