Above are two of the oil paintings by artist LOLITA VALDERRAMA SAVAGE now on exhibit at the Philippine Center on Fifth Avenue (between 45th and 46th Streets) in Manhattan. The Foundation For Filipino Artists, Inc., in collaboration with the Philippine Consulate of New York sponsored the opening of the exhibition. The show will run until Nov. 14. Lolita Valderrama-Savage, is a native of the Philippines who now divides her time between New York and Florence. I took this photo of the Philippine Consulate last winter.
