26th Kulay sa Tubig named winners

Gallery Genesis showcased the 26th Kulay sa Tubig Annual Invitational Watercolor Competition-Exhibition last November 20 to December 18. This is said to be the most prestigious and most important watercolor Competition-Exhibition in the country today.

Kulay sa Tubig continues to encourage artists to bring forth the best they have to offer.

Gallery Genesis is a well respected pioneer in its business and had been in operations for more than 25 years. As an art gallery, they offer various themes, mediums and styles of paintings. All their artists are official winners of various art competitions in the art scene in Manila and masters in the making of Philippine Art.

Winners of this year’s competition were Eric Torres, Alice Guillermo, Cid Reyes, Patrick Flores, Felipe de Leon Jr. and Jack Pilar. They may have only received medals or trophies, but crafting a Kulay sa Tubig means belonging to an elite circle of artists who have passed the most critical and scrutinizing eyes of the country’s respected names in the art circle.

Aracelli Salas, owner of Gallery Genesis and originator of the competition congratulates the winners and stressed that the artist compete for bragging rights.
