Bacolod local artist and sculptor, Alden Lopez Macazar presented his 5th solo exhibit entitled Handurawan at Museo Negrense De La Salle last Tuesday, January 12.

 Macazar’s handurawan, a local term that means “vision”, was inspired by the rich Negrosanon culture. His works reflect Filipino beliefs, spiritual life, work and social issues shown in distinct terra-cotta figures.

 The ribbon cutting ceremony was headed by Macazar and his wife, together with the Museo Negrense De La Salle Director Lyn Marie Mapa.

 The “Handurawan” exhibit will be showcased until February 12, 2016.
