Ross Jaylo: Fall to Rise

September 9 - October 7, 2017
Opening Reception with Live Music: Saturday, September 9, 2017 from 6-10pm

Distinction Gallery is proud to present oil paintings by Ross Jaylo. The opening reception will be held on Saturday September 9, from 6-10pm. We will also have live music, ArtHatch open studios, BK Cellars Wine, and Stone Beer.

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.

At the young age of only 23 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 and Australia. 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. Ross's first solo exhibition with Distinction Gallery sold out before the opening reception.

Gallery Director - Melissa Inez Walker: "Ross is an incredibly driven and skilled artist. At just 22 years of age literally every painting he has created has sold. His demand far out reaches the amount of paintings he can create. He is one of the kindest, most genuine artists I have worked with and I am thrilled to see what he creates for his upcoming show".

The exhibition will run from September 9 - October 7, 2017. The opening reception with Ross, live music, ArtHatch open studios, Stone Beer, and BK Cellars wine will be on Saturday September 9, from 6-10pm.
