Angel Cacnio and Bahay Parokyano Art Galleries in Malabon
Angel Cacnio has won coin design contests of the Central Bank of the Philippines in 1967 where his designs won first prizes for the Lapu-Lapu one centavo coin and the Marcelo H. Del Pilar 50 centavo coin. His designs commissioned by the Central Bank for the P100 and P20 bills are still in circulation.

Cool pictures. You always make me feel like I was there! :) I thought of you today when I posted because I gave a tiny history lesson... not nearly as in depth, but history nonetheless! lol!

Again, let me say, " great subjects and a job well done."

It always makes me homesick to see pictures of the Philippines, especially its art and architecture.
Thanks for posting these great photos.

Wow, looks like a great arts place. Wouldn't mind visiting this myself. And you can even take pictures.

It's great that you're always educating us about arts and artists in the Philippines Tutubi. I've never heard of Angel Cacnio before and it would indeed be interesting to visit his house/museum. I love that clock!

If I were also an artist, I'd turn my house into an art gallery. I know someone who turned his house in Antipolo into a gallery and is now a party place for rent. He's not even an artist... just an art patron.
Hi Tutubi. Hope you don't mind me linking you up with my blog.

kyels, i was only able to watch sparring sessions of sabong. never been inside the cockpit where people congregate. i was thinking of taking pictures of cockfights (sidney has a series on that) plus horseracing
ghee, so you're from malabon. my friends and i are planning an "unplanned" return trip there mainly to discover food places
rochelle, so you now think of me when talking about history :P
nini, thanks for the compliment. will post flowers and poems one of these days as some sort of filler posts
mari, i have upcoming posts on my hometown arts and galleries after i'm through with some pending posts
pieterbie, they're promoting the place and their works maybe that's why picture taking is allowed. picture taking inside galleries and museums are generally not permitted
toe, angel cacnio and his son ferdie were also very accomodating. treated the whole group to a feast of various malabon delicacies. such hospitality
carlotta, from the heritage conservation society yahoogroups where i'm lurking. the info was posted by AUgusto Villalon in his Inquirer column also
rennyba, great art at the grassroots. had a great long weekend here. i have another travel post coming from it
tani, i'm not an artist myself but i appreciate art. will blog about paete's art again later. thanks for linking me up :P
gypsy, that ballerina is for sale but i didn't inquire about the price. let me know if you want it. i can get in touch with the artist :P

dave, i don't know. maybe art always knows where to find me to blog about it :)
i have a few upcoming posts on art again from my hometown :P
