“Our commitment in championing local artists and artistry continues as the world heals and recovers as one from the many challenges of the recent years,” shares Linda Pecoraro, hotel general manager, adding “This exhibit, aptly entitled ‘Moving Forward,’ embodies Conrad Manila’s optimistic outlook in sharing the light and warmth of hospitality with our guests complimented by inspired touches of luxury.”

Sagaran, a former hotelier and public relations professional, revisits his roots as a promising art major mentored by some of the industry’s best. ‘Moving Forward’ is an exhibit of acrylic paintings of various modes of transportation which is ‘not just a metaphor for everybody’s aspiration to ‘fast forward’ to a new normal in life but an urge as well to move on by whatever means.’ His collection of paintings of iconic cars, scooters, jeepney, and motorcycles executed in vivid colors, is a celebration of vibrancy of life after the grimness of the pandemic and lockdowns.

“Of Art and Wine: Moving Forward” is on exhibit for purchase from August 30 to October 22, 2022, in partnership with The Artisan Cellars. The changing exhibits at the hotel’s Gallery C bring the classic features of wine and art that celebrate life and culture.
