THIS one screams girl power.

Thomasian alumnae Nady S. Nacario, Jane Arrieta-Ebarle, and sisters Lydia and Aida T. Magdaluyo combined their latest works in their first painting exhibit since college, “KaARTEhan ng Apat na Kababaihan Mula sa UST.”

Aida Magdaluyo used acrylic for her framed pictures of leaves in shades of green with geometric figures as background, making “Dahon ng Manga” and “Isa, Tatlo, Dalawa” very natural.

On the other hand, Nacario used chalk pastel and colored pencil in her paintings, creating a light and hazy effect. “Ang Pagbubunga” and “Panimula” in oil on canvas were flashed with radiant colors that left the viewers wondering what the subject is. “Pamanang Likas 1,” “Pamanang Likas 2,” and “Pamanang Likas 3” are paintings that show the beauty of the Taal Volcano in different perspectives.

Lydia Magdaluyo achieved an antic look in her works, all in watercolor in dirty white paper. With black, gray, white, and sepia colors, “Mesa ni Inang,” “Silya ni Lolo” and “Pamingalan” will remind you of the old times.

Meanwhile, Arrieta-Ebarle’s paintings are effeminate because of her use of women’s faces and flowers as subjects. She used dark and complementary acrylic in “Women’s Want,” “ Women’s Front,” and “Women’s Doubt.”

Truly, with their splendid paintings, they do their part in showing the woman’s hand for creativity.

“KaARTEhan ng Apat na Kababaihan Mula sa UST” went on exhibit at the UP Diliman Vargas Museum from July 15 to July 29.
