It's a Friday night, and all are busy with their business, making sure that the last work or school night of the week is well spent, whether it be with friends, family, a good book , or your lazy dog. But there's one thing different stirring along the lanes of Maginhawa. The affair occurs behind closed doors, yet once you enter, the atmosphere is freer and more progressive than any other meeting of great, talented minds and the most eccentric and smartest of people.

Project 20 Artist Space and Gallery is home to the works of 35 female artists as they show the world just how important art is for expression and identity. This gathering is aptly called Girls, Girls, Girls, and art spanning from the medium of the canvas to the film screen are featured as guests wine and dine and just be merry.

As the night lived on, it was clear that the project was not one to stir hatred among the sexes; rather, it's to genuinely showcase the struggle, the intricacy, and finally the sweet success and beauty of being a woman and an artist in this day and age. Each work in the exhibit told a different story through different platforms, revealing the uniqueness of each piece. Much thought was put into each and every stroke, take, and click of a button, and this attention to minute ideas resulted in an exquisite collection of art.

We were able to talk to some of the artists and ask them about their work, their experiences in their field, and the advice they'd give to aspiring artists.

"Most of us are from UP Fine Arts, some from UP Film, so mostly we were able to collect the art for the exhibit from friends or friends of friends. We merged together, and now we're here. We aren't limited to UP students though. Our exhibit is quite diverse." —Aya Ng

"Art making is very personal. It isn't just technical. It takes much reflection as well. That's why a lot of artists tend to stop creating when something unfortunate happens. A lot of female artists I know take inspiration from love and death. Those are two things I think that make you stronger as a person when you go through it. It's horrible, having to go through it, but once you get over it, you can come out stronger." —Eleanor Giron

"Don't get pressured with the demands of society. When we're young, it's pretty natural and common to not know exactly what we want. Keep trying and experimenting because our failures today, someone ten years from now will relate to that failure. We don't see it now; we're all waiting for the successful point. But all these failures are successes for someone else, so it's okay to fail." —Alyssa Suico

"Art is a catalyst for change. Everything is a process. Art helps people become more inspired to do things in various ways, like sparking dialogue." —Lee Paje

What better way to begin the end of women's month? Girls, Girls, Girls will run from March 31 to April 20, 2017 at the Project 20 Artist Space and Gallery in Maginhawa.

A Simple Learner Who's a Great Pretender

Maybe I'm just a learner, not a weirdo. A learner that knows how to listen and pretend. A simple learner who's a great pretender. Pretending to be slightly dumb enough not to be judged and criticized by those who do not appreciate my existence. We surround ourselves with people who's levels are either beyond or below our intellectual behavior, because as for reality, people may use you either for their success or your downfall. Since then, people tend to judge someone who has an intellect with things they shouldn't be. Making them a criticizer, and most of all, calling them weird.

Honestly, I'm one of this "weirdo" who actually loves to learn things, and for the record, I'm bullied and stressed out for making myself not to learn more and go with the flow to dumbness I had. Have you ever feel being assigned to some task where you know every process to make it easier and faster to finish but turns out to hesitate to voice out because some of your mates put themselves in charge. There are times where I know what to do, what to say, or how to react, but kept myself silent and pretend not to know anything that may help us. Maybe it's a good thing to just go with their ideas and learn from their perspectives, but sometimes you can't control it and says something, and once again called to be a weirdo and let you finish the work by yourself.

It's annoying that you only know one process yet they gave you the whole work and let you finish it by yourself because they insist that "MAGALING KA DIBA?". It's not your fault being an intellectual person, knowing such things that may help you to pursue your dreams, and have the basic knowledge about something. You don't need to know everything, just the basics. And as for those people who do not appreciate your existence, let them be and continue what's the best for you. In some cases, you'll be annoyed by this but most of the time you'll be thankful for it. Not for now but maybe later. Just be yourself either a weirdo, a great pretender, or a simple learner, and always remember to lower your voice and behavior because no one loves that.

Just be a great pretender not to hear any runts and be a good learner that appreciates everything. It's out of nowhere thoughts of mine, but simply I leave you this my favorite life quotation; "Don't introduce yourself, Let your success introduce you"
