Come and See The Sunshine Place Showcase Works of Its Art Students Until November 15

The Sunshine Place recently showcased the works of its art students in Flow, an exhibit highlighting the beauty of accepting grace in starting over, peace in pausing, and growth in going with the flow. This also marks the fifth year of its Coloring Lives initiatives for its members.

The exhibit brings together the works of 30 artists in four (4) of The Sunshine Place’s art classes. These include works from the Acrylic and oil painting classes of Art Association of the Philippines President Fidel Sarmiento; the Porcelain painting class of Mee Lee Casey, a Malaysian expat wife, who has been teaching Porcelain Painting in the UK, Hong Kong, and Australia for more than 20 years; and Ikebana Sogetsu arrangements with Marc Tomas.
