Posted in Uncategorized

For those who have seen the work of Ronald Ventura, you cannot help but notice his mastery of the human body. His ability to almost hyper realistically replicate (and at the same distort) the human form is a spectacle in itself. Ayala Museums is to showcase various sized pieces from Ventura, from 1998 ‘til the mid 2000s in a special exhibit entitled Ronald Ventura: Big and Small, Joel Mendez, MD Collection. This exhibit promises to showcase rarely seen works from one of Asia’s finest contemporary artists. His uniquely Filipino approach to sophisticated forms is masterful, and should be one of your art destinations this summer.

This special collection will be shown from March 17 to April 26 at the Ayala Museum Ground Floor Gallery. The picture is of Ronald Ventura’s IN MEMORIAL (Detail) from 2001, taken from Joel Mendez, MD’s Personal Collection. Photo taken from http://ayalamuseum.org

Though the exhibit is an amazing addition, the museum’s permanent collection is always worth a visit. From the dioramas, to the ceramics, to the gold collections, Ayala Museum looks to inspire visitors of any age range.

Reviews

  • “It feels like home! Truly a service with a heart .. Keep it up!”

    Shan D., Tripadvisor

  • “Stayed at the Discovery Primea Makati for two nights in May in their Two Bedroom Primea Suite. This is truly an above and beyond hotel which after its soft launch I would be surprised doesn’t get fully booked straight away! Will now always make the Discovery Primea my hotel choice in Manila. Will be back next year!”

  • “I have stayed at many hotels in the City and have by far enjoyed this stay the most. From the moment I arrived I was greeted by warm and friendly staff who were very accommodating. The stand out for me is the apartment style facilities. A home away from home. Spacious rooms and modern appliances with a vast array of Chef inspired menu options. Will be back soon.”

  • “A truly exceptional hotel. Very friendly and accomodating personnel, luscious food to die for, exceptional facilities with an exceptional view of BGC, Makati and Ortigas Skyline, and top notch accessibility. We’ll be back for sure.”

  • Great ambiance, service and food. From the lobby to our room, the experience was beyond words could describe. Kudos especially to housekeeping for the upkeep of the room. I would definitely recommend this hotel chain to my family and friends.
