“Color More Stress Less” UST Museum’s third coloring exhibit

“Serial Kolorista: Color More Stress Less,” is an exhibit that
features different works from adult coloring books. It was officially
opened on April 12, 2018 at the University of Santo Tomas Museum Main Gallery, Main Building, UST and will run until May 12, 2018.

The exhibit, now on its third year, was spearheaded by UST Museum
Director Rev. Fr. Isidro C. Abaño, O.P. The different art collections include artworks of Fr. Abaño himself who shared his “Celestial Beauty”- themed series of stained glass images with colored pencil as the medium. The artworks were thematic and comprised of different subjects including: oriental women, myths and legends, portraits of Mary, flowers, landscapes, and many more.

Also featured within the collection were the quotes of the artists. One of
the colorists, Ethelwolda De Guzman Alvares said, “I love coloring anything
and everything under the sun because it permits me to be an artist in my own unique way.” Fr. Abaño also shared, “I enjoy the richness of silence when I am into a concentration of coloring.”

Fellow coloring enthusiast, Yvonne Marie Chua- Banks, shared
her collection with the theme “Flowers” and said, “Coloring is my escape from life’s everyday stresses.” Some colorists belong to a social
media group which is an avenue for them to share their works.
