NSW—Filipinos hugged the spotlight in the launch of Four Seasons Exhibition and Sacred Music Afternoon held at the Peacock Gallery Auburn Arts Studio on 21 September.

The paintings of Filipino artists, Francisco “Frank“ Rovero, and Bert Estanislao, dominated the exhibition. They were joined in by Indian artists Lorraine and Maurice Fernandez.

Auburn Lord Mayor Hicham Zraika declared the exhibition open emphasising the value of recognising and showcasing the art work of migrants; through art, people from diverse backgrounds can engage with one another. Consul General Anne Jalando-on Louis shared the Filipino people’s love for fiestas or celebrations.
