National Gallery Singapore - Reframing Modernism

ABBEY: At last we set foot at National Gallery Singapore during their Open House last June. This is our sidetrack before we go to the Piano Festival at Victoria Concert Hall

We were given a pair of tickets for the DBS Singapore gallery which showcases Art in Singapore since the 19th century. In UOB Southeast Asia Art Gallery, I'm very proud to see Pinoy masterpieces from the likes of Hidalgo and Amorsolo. 

It was a joyous moment. I'm able to see the real thing not only in books.

WILL: National Gallery of Singapore open its door for free to awe its visitors. 

Our jaw dropped when we saw the masterpieces of well-known artists of our lifetime. I am stunned to see the paintings from the Philippines. Abbey can easily pin-point what is made by Filipinos. I am glad to see some of the works by Juan Luna. One of Philippines' National Hero. 

Bad thing is we are out time to check-out Pablo Picasso obra! 

Thanks National Gallery for this opportunity! This is once in a lifetime experience. :)
