Tagaytay Art Beat brought back the life in local art scene with its well-thought-out collection of fresh music, vibrant works, and pristine landscape last May 19, 2018. The art display was set in Museo Orlina which was filled by an interesting selection of paintings, sculptures and other art pieces. Featured on-site were promising local artists Gab Loste, Jess de Leon, Lee Caces, Kim Pamela Co, Anthony Molina, Dennis Jimenez, Hannah Bundalian, Gab Baez, Jenny Gernale, Razel Mari, Dennis Bato, Lhean Storm, Mykie Concepcion, Rydel Reib Arayata, and Bea Policarpio.
Far from the art installations that put your curiosity and wonder to slumber, the diverse activities, carefully arranged by discerning art curators, brought its audience into a visual feast alongside live art sessions by Jappy Agoncillo, Dee Jae Paeste, Miggy Antonio, Aral Cru, and Kris Abrigo.
It was a day packed not only with exceptional art and an outstanding view of Taal Lake but as well as musical numbers that left tasteful visitors awestruck. Together with Docdef Productions, the exhibition brought local acts – namely Autotelic, Tom’s Story, Farewell Fair Weather, Oh, Flamingo!, UBE, Clara Benin, Reese Lansangan, Julianne Tarroja and Max Javelino -from noon until wee hours. This was followed by eargasmic performances by Leanne and Naara and I Belong to the Zoo, Ben&Ben, The Ransom Collective, Munimuni, Apoc x DJ Nicko, Kjah x Supreme Fist, and BLKD x The Tooters, Bea Lorenzo, DJ-and-drums duo Motherbasss, Mr. Bones & The Boneyard Circus. Ultimately, the crowd was serenaded with nostalgic tunes and new records by Hale, Mayonnaise and The Itchyworms.
After the success of the event, Tagaytay Art Beat proved that diversity in local music and art scene could be given the right platform without setting aside the unpretentious beauty of nature. While many lifestyle junkies admired the multitude of visual and musical pieces, Tagaytay Art Beat also gave the opportunity for people to take notice of the beautiful artistry in the landscapes that the country effortlessly possess.
