ArtHatch & Distinction Gallery present

Ross Jaylo: Transition

September 10 - October 1, 2016
Opening Reception with Live Music: Saturday, September 24, 2016 from 6-10pm

ArtHatch and Distinction Gallery are excited to host the debut U.S. solo exhibition of artist Ross Jaylo. At just 21 years of age Ross has already begun to conquer the art world with a bang. It is truly an honor to host his first solo US exhibition.

Ross Jaylo, a New York based Filipino Painter and multi-media artist renders onto canvas his conception of an ideal love. A symbolic and passionate visualization of love that transcends beyond social norms and breaks the illusion that love must heed society's expectation of belief, social status, age, creed, race, gender and stereotypes. Love in its purest form.

Ross has a promising career ahead of him. He has had several solo and group exhibitions throughout the Philippines and has participated in several group shows in the United States. Ross has received several awards including Cocolife "Colors of Life" National Painting Competition Grand Prize in 2006, University of Santo Tomas Benavides Outstanding Achievement Award in 2006, and Maningning Miclat National Painting Competition People's Choice Award in 2007.

The exhibition will run from September 10 through October 1, 2016.

The Opening Reception will be held on Saturday, September 24, 2016 from 6-10pm and will feature live music, Stone Beer, and BK Cellars wine. Studio artists within the ArtHatch building will have their studios open to the public as well.

ArtHatch is a 7,000 square foot building which houses the gallery: exhibitions changing monthly, multiple exhibition spaces, "The Alley," featuring work by 20+ juried local artists, the teen room featuring artwork by 25+ teen artists, 14 artist studios, ranging in size from 150 to 800 square feet, and an escape room, which serves as a fundraiser for ArtHatch. Distinction Gallery features contemporary and cutting edge artwork.
