PiskayJamo 3: Boholano Visual Artists Art Exhibit 2019

March 25, 2019

A month long exhibition by Boholano artists is now ongoing at the Art Gallery of the Capitol University Museum of Three Cultures, Cagayan de Oro City. Dubbed PiskayJamo 3, the visual art exhibit showcases Bohol’s rich and colorful history, cultural and natural heritage. It highlights the finest Boholano master pieces, depicting retrospective pre-Hispanic and other eras.          “PiskayJamo is a highly superlative expression for Boholanos,” explained Glenn Lumantao, President of the Bohol Artists Inc. (BAI), who founded PiskayJamo in 2009. “We portray our natural and cultural heritage in PisakyJamo. We capture through our visual arts the beauty of Bohol, like the Chocolate Hills,” explained Glenn, who also has 26 years experience as a tour guide in Bohol.  “Piskay is a native Boholano- Visayan word which means nice. Jamo is a 100% Boholano word which means very much.  Thus, PiskayJamo simply means very nice.” PiskayJamo – Cagayan is the third of a series.  It was first staged in Cebu City at the Art Center of SM City Cebu in 2009, and again in Bohol in 2017.  “This is indeed a very good exhibit in that we take a closer look at the tarsiers and many other things that are uniquely Bol-anon,” said City Mayor Oscar Moreno. “Bohol has always been known for industry, dedication and commitment. This makes me very excited to view the exhibit because while Bol-anon art is not very different from our own, there are elements that are uniquely Bol-anon that we should take a look at and appreciate.” Besides the exhibit, Glenn shared another unique aspect of PiskayJamo is Panag-tabo with fellow artists from their exhibit venues. “We also like to meet up and get acquainted with our fellow artists from various places to share our artistic expressions through our Panag-tagbo. There are no other persons who can educate the people about art than the artists themselves. That’s why we need to make exhibits like this as often as we can.” Participating artists for PiskayJamo 3 include Joey Labrador, Rhanths Annunciado, Glenn Lumantao, Glemar Barte, Elvin Perocho Vitor, Gabriel Cafe, Junior Lagura, Paul Nino Inting, Mark Anthony Cartilla, Thon Septimo, Daisylou Manluza, Mai Ytem and Haskel Estillo, featuring their master works curated by Museum of Three Cultures Resident Artist and Curator Nic Aca. “The CU Museum of Three Cultures Art Gallery has always been here to support budding and professional artists who wish to avail themselves of the gallery space,” Nic said. For reservations and more details, interested parties may call Mr. Nic Aca, the gallery curator, at 09354334422.  The exhibit will run until April 12, 2019. Gallery hours are Mondays – Fridays 9:00AM – 12noon; 1:30-5:00PM; and Saturdays 9:00AM – 12noon. PiskayJamo 3 is sponsored by Cagayan de Oro Arts Guild, Capitol University Culture & Arts, Capitol University Museum of Three Cultures and Artsada Kagay-an, Inc.
