   NAME: ESTEBAN, JEMAIMA HOSANNA M. DATE: 22 JANUARY 2013 SECTION: SEC 10 (10:30-12:00) A Visit to the Gallery of Creative Hands 11 th  of January 2014, it was a day I had all my first times. My first time commuting, riding an MRT, visiting an art gallery/exhibit, and meeting a real artist/painter was also a first time for me! Indeed, it was such a nice trip! Though my cousin and I were sweating a lot due to the hot weather and nonstop walking, include  pollution , crowded places and of course weariness, it was all worth it seeing the realistic and beautiful paintings at the gallery. Our fatigue was gone as soon as we reached the exhibit. I was thankful because my cousin and I share common interest, and that is ART. It was like a field trip visiting the gallery of creative hands with just the two us. I could say the paintings are indeed a work of creative hands. I could feel how the artist put his emotions ecstatically just from looking at every stroke of the brush. It’s as if his hands were posses sed of the feelings of every person in his paintings. I felt the agony, pain, sorrow, struggle, contentment, simplicity, excitement, happiness, and love in each and every of his works. Yes, you could say I fell in love and was and still amazed. The gallery has only one exhibitor that time and he was Jose ‘Pepe’  G. Aguilos, Jr. (at my right side) He is a distinguished Architect who devotes his spare time painting, sculpting and playing classical violin music. He was born on March 2, 1931 in Manila. He is the oldest of the nine children of Jose Aguilos, Sr. of Guagua and Brigida Gomez of Lubao, Pampanga. He earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Architecture from the Mapua Institute of Technology and topped the National Architectural Board Examination in  1955. He taught at FEU for thirty years. He designed and constructed many famous landmarks around the country. Architect Pepe started painting just several years ago and his studio located at No. 17 Examiner St., West Triangle, Quezon City is now filled with more than one hundred paintings. Some of his srcinal masterpieces inspired by famous painter such as Juan Luna, Van Gogh, Frazetta Remoir, Claide Monete, and Rembrandt show his versatility in style. He had his First Solo Painting Exhibition last November 4 to 17, 2006 at the Purple Arts Gallery of SM Megamall. Since then people are visiting his Gallery. Those who have seen his masterpieces strongly encouraged him to have another painting exhibition so that others can appreciate his fine arts. The painting at the left side is the first painting of his that caught my eye. The setting would be likely in a mountain or in some remote areas where two kids had gone maybe to earn money and buy food. I could feel joy and sadness in this art. The joy of coming  back home with a food in their hands and the sadness of coming home thinking they had to do this again, walking through a rough road and experiencing all this at such a young age. You could tell how they love each other and how caring the eldest to his younger brother. The title of the painting is ‘Pauwi Na!’ I like this painting  best. It is realistic, the way he used to paint the water seems so real and the work has so much feels. Whether acrylic or oil, every single thing, even the stroke of the brush, is just awesome.    I don’t know how to explain or how should I put into words the artwork at the right side. It is as almost the same as the artwork at the front. The only difference is that these kids graduated from school and were happy going home. The struggles of going to school and coming back home walking hundreds of miles and had never given up studying has been paid off by a diploma. The joy of coming back home with a diploma in their hands is what flutters my heart most. The title of the  painting is ‘Nearly Home (After Graduation).’  I think the artist intended to portray such strong emotional feelings in his paintings to make the viewers feel what the people in his  paintings are experiencing. To appreciate the joy of life, the hard work in life, and how we should enjoy life. I enjoyed every single of his works and I’ve experienced so many first times through this trip. I’ve learned the importance of art and the joy of being an artist. It is not as simple as what we all think. We have to appreciate art for us to know the real meaning of life. Indeed, these are the  paintings of creative hands!
