An Art Gallery at Kamias Road - Caballete Artist Gallery

Caballete Artist Gallery was born out of a passion, a passion of one man to start a collection in the late 1980’s and collect the best of Philippine visual art, to showcase this collection and show the best of what the Filipino artist past and present have to offer. 

Mr. Ramon Araullo, owner, is  a stock broker by profession. He considers himself as a frustrated painter wherein he shifted from Fine Arts into other course at UP Diliman. But since he's always been fascinated by art, he found his own way to show the love his love through collecting. Most of his collections were acquired as early as the 1970's where he purchased through layaway payments. The gallery houses Sir Mon's personal collection, together with the artworks consigned by artists and his friends.

During our visit to the gallery, Sir Mon is persuading/convincing us that we should also start collecting paintings. We just need to have 'eye' for them. What are the benefits of collecting artworks?
According to Sir Mon:]
- It will make you happy and satisfied. The beauty of these paintings are mesmerizing.
- It's a good investment. The value increases up to 10% every year.
- The value of artworks never depreciates. The older the artworks, the more the price will increase.

He is right. Artworks are good investment. I'm planning to get one as soon as I can. hihi!
If you're interested into paintings, head on to Caballete Artist's Gallery as you can just walk in for free and you can come along with your friends. They offer the artworks cheaper price (than in the malls) which they aim to spread the love and support for our local and national artists. And by the way, you can also do the layaway payments here. Plus Sir Mon might give you discounts, he's very kind and passionate! :)

Watch out for this as Caballete Artist Gallery aims to be the venue where would be aspiring artist and just plain art lovers can be hands on, through weekly activity tagged as an Art Lab, where a lead artist or an art master can share and guide a group the rudiments of creating masterpieces using various art medium. Various forms of artistic talent will also be featured and encouraged in our venue, talents in music and the literary world would also be a weekly staple. 

After visiting the art gallery, you can still hangout and just go upstairs of the art gallery and eat at the ComidaChefs' Gallery Cafe where they offer multi-ethnic dining experience.
