Why is it called the Pink Show? This was founded by Mary Lozano and Cynthia Chapman Manuszak. Mary is a cancer patient and Cynthia is a photographer, when Cynthia took photos of Mary with other cancer survivors and have an art show. They raised money for breast cancer patient. And then they called it, the Pink Show.
A Filipino artist is participating the show. Johnny Otilano, a Filipino painter based in United States of America. He won the People's Choice Award last 2010 with his artwork entitled 11/25/1994 signifying the death of her mother. The artwork was very symbolic and meaningful. He put photos of his mother, his wife and his daughter on it. For me, it simply represents the women fighting for wellness and dignity.
This year's Pink Show, Johnny is joining again the art exhibit with his new artwork "The Autumn Leaves." Let us support him and his artwork. Sa paraang ito, hindi lang tayo sumusuporta sa isang Pilipinong pintor ngunit nagpapakita rin ito ng ating pagsuporta sa mga kababaihan.
The Pink Show 2011 will be starting in October 6 at the Chris Sorensen Art Studio and Gallery 2223 S. Van Ness Avenue Fresno, CA. 93721 from 5 pm to 9 pm.There will be a Chris Sorensen Choice Award and a People PINK Choice Award that will be selected by viewers that will attend the gallery.
