VANCOUVER, 08 March 2022 — On the occasion of the 2022 National Women’s Month and in celebration of International Women’s Day, the Philippine Consulate General in Vancouver opened an exhibit today entitled, “Calado”, showcasing the works Lenore Lim, a Filipina artist and an accomplished printmaker who has had solo exhibitions in the United States, Canada, the Philippines, Italy, Austria, Jordan Berlin, and the UAE.
Inspired by the style of embroidery from Lim’s native province of Batangas that was introduced during the Spanish colonial period, the “Calado” Exhibit features works showing the breadth of Lim’s thematic creativity, which spans from artistic facility with abstract compositions that experiment purely with formal elements to a palpable delight and ease in nostalgic and nature-derived compositions. Her variety of printmaking methods include lithography, serigraphy, and etching, intended to produce representative and abstract works with references to nature and traditional Philippine decorative arts.
The Exhibit at the Philippine Consulate General in Vancouver will run until 29 April 2022.
