In celebration of Women’s Month March, the J. Amado Araneta Foundation and Gateway Gallery celebrate and honor Women in Art. To run all Wednesdays of March, the event features one remarkable woman artist each week, specifically linking their art advocacies.
First in the line up is visual artist Celeste Lecaroz who shares her advocacies through her stunning pieces in pastel and spontaneous realism.
Among her best-known works are: the Kobe Bryant “Mamba Forever” tribute portrait that went viral, and portraits of Philippine presidents Manuel L.

Celeste’s pastel renditions of turn-of-the-century Filipinas celebrating sisterhood are also among her most loved creations.
