SORE is my first one-woman exhibit. I had mixed feelings about the opening night but it felt more like it's my wedding day (sans the groom). I was very excited and yet anxious at the same time. But for sure I was very prepared to open the door and show my artworks to everyone.
It was overwhelming to see a lot of people who came and greeted me. It felt good hearing sincere "congratulations" from my friends, family and even from strangers. I must've married the perfect man! Hahaha! But really, it was a genuine feeling of success. An accomplishment for myself.

SORE was just not a success for myself, there were people who voluntarily made it happen for me. My deepest gratitude to the following people: Ian Zafra, for the program and the getting me through the early stages of preparation until everything was realised. Nonon Yee for curating my exhibit and teaching me a lot of stuff about doing an art exhibit not to mention framing all my artworks. Apiong Bagares for willingly offering his time as my lighting director and electrician at the same time. Kei Valmoria for writing those stuff i couldn't write for myself. Insoy Ninal for the free PR placement in Sunstar cebu. David Harris of BITE magazine for allowing me to show my boobs (SORE poster) on his magazine hahaha! John Paul Pabrua for putting my designs into the tees. Charo Lyn Roncenvalles for the lovely journals and made me feel like i just published a book. hehe Jude Gitamondoc for a unique experience on my creative endeavor. The Outpost restaurant for the cool venue. To my family who's support is unmatchable. And to all my friends and ex lovers(eherrrm) who became part of the whole creative process of SORE.
SORE runs until November 8, 2009.
