UWAAP 9th Artists Group Show
The United Women Artists Association of the Philippines (UWAAP) was officially founded and registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on January 11, 2014.
Founder and President Menchu VB Arandilla, called for membership that received a keen response from more than 500 Filipina artists all over the world. UWAAP aims, above all, to support the goals to achieve success of the Philippine women artists. Within a few months of its inception, UWAAP implementing its vision and mission, launched its first group exhibit entitled "DiskArte" in Metro Manila. It showcased the various talents of its founding officers and active member artists who are mostly professionals in various fields.
UWAAP artists are composed of, among others: doctors, lawyers, educators, bankers, accountants, managers, international and local civil service, and entrepreneurs who vow to continue and revive their love for the arts, despite the complexities in their life and work schedules. These women connect, form comradeship and welcome emerging talents who are either just starting to discover their ability in the arts or have been in the industry but have yet to display publicly their artistic styles and ideas.
UWAAP can be described as a guild of female artists of all ages who exude grace, true self-regard, indomitable strength, integrity, creativity, skill and eagerness to learn both traditional and brand new influences.
As it is inherent in Filipinas to have strong traits of femininity, loyalty, dignity, and self-respect; these artists aim to empower and inspire other women artists from all walks of life; to explore the world of art with tenacity, integrity and warmth, while ensuring each one, her own happiness through friendship and camaraderie.
As the saying goes, "One for all, All for one!"
