Poetry & Prose and the Ateneo Art Awards, 2014

Just a quick post about the recent awarding of the Ateneo Art Awards, which was held on the 14th. :) My brother, Luis, was one of the people shortlisted for the Fernando Zobel Prizes for Visual Art for his exhibit, Nocturne (which I posted about here). I think you can still see the works on display at Shangri-la’s East Wing lobby, aka the new wing, just until today. They’ll be up at the Ateneo Art Gallery from September 8 to October 15, in case you can’t make it today and would like to see the exhibits that were nominated. This is part of my brother’s exhibit:

Congratulations to the winners Leslie de Chavez, Charles Buenconsejo, and Jeona Zoleta! I don’t have a lot of photos because… well, can you see where I was standing? Hehe. Congratulations as well to the winner of the Purita Kalaw Ledesma Prize for Art Criticism, Carlo Daona.

Prior to the awarding, my folks and I (sans the brother) checked out this new (ish?) cafe called Poetry & Prose Patiserie. It’s a pretty cute place with lit-themed decoration and a really clean and focused aesthetic. Not my cup of tea (get it?) but I can appreciate the thought and effort behind it.

My sister and I went for the salted caramel profiteroles, because I always go for the ‘salted caramel’ option and splitting a dish with my sister almost always means that I eat 80% of it. I got a cappuccino, which is my safe coffee drink when I go to a new place that doesn’t serve flat whites.

And just for kicks, jewelry I wore that day: the Andromeda Necklace by Nettie Kent for Of a Kind, and the Asa Ring by Silva/Bradshaw in Green Nylon.

    Hi Carina,

    Sorry, I’m just curious: what are “flat whites”??

    Also, your blog looks nice.

    :)

      Flat whites are a kind of coffee. :) Thank you m.d.!
