ZAMBOANGA CITY, Feb. 29 (PIA) -- Zamboangueño renowned artist Rameer Tawasil mounted a solo art exhibit, February capping the highly charged Dia de Zamboanga activities.
Organized by the city government and the Council for Culture, Arts and History of Zamboanga City (CCAHZC), the event was graced by no less than by Spanish Ambassador Jorge Domecq and his lady Rosa Rufino de Domecq and other Spanish Embassy officials.
Mayor Celso Lobregat and Ambassadoro Domecq led the ribbon-cutting ceremony of the art exhibit at the Lobby of Garden Orchid Hotel. The simple program took place minutes after the grand program of the 75th Dia de Zamboanga held at the Joaquin Enriquez Memorial Sports complex.
Rameer Tawasil is an internationally acclaimed artist who works hand in hand with the City Government to promote the magnetic appeal of arts among young artists. His creations displayed in the said exhibit will be used for another exhibit in Malaysia this coming month.
During the cocktails, aside from being amused by the artistry of the creations displayed, Ambassador Domecq was apparently captivated by the music offered by the Zamboanga Hermosa Chorale.
The internationally-awarded choir group rendered several Spanish songs that won the appreciation and delight of the Spanish Ambassador and his lady Rosa.
Present also during the affair were the Honorary Consul of Spain in Zamboanga Ramon Balaguer, Film Development Council of the Philippines Chairman Briccio Santos, Councilors Vincent Paul Elago, Rogelio Valesco Jr., Myra Paz Abubakar and Rudy Lim. (JPA/RVC/RA/CIO/PIA- ZBST)
