DAGUPAN CITY, July 28 — Two circles of young Pangasinense artists collaborated their works into a month-long exhibit dubbed as "Liing" that opened July 27, at the Liongoren Gallery, Tapuac District in this city.

About 20 artists from Agini and Aya groups — who are 25 years old and below — came up with their drawings, paintings, and sculptures (installation) for exhibit.

Five-year artist Mark Joseph Macaraeg, from the Aya group, said he was inspired by the group to keep up with his hobby as only a few have such kind of talent. Macaraeg was a student at the Dagupan City National High School when he joined Aya, the artists' group formed by his teacher.

Meanwhile, a freelance artist, Jay Hernandez of the Agini group, said their group decided to join the exhibit to show their skills as street artists.

"Gusto naming ipakita na meron din kaming ibubuga (We have to show that we have talents)," remarked Hernandez. Agini is an artists' group formed out of friendship, that specializes on experimental and contemporary arts.

Macaraeg and Hernandez urged their fellow young artists to persevere with what they really want to do and join artists' circles in order to enhance what they already know and for their works to be recognized. (PNA)
