Guv to give support for Kampangan artists

April 13, 2011
CITY OF SAN FERNANDO — Pampanga Gov. Lilia Pineda on Tuesday told members of the Artist Association of the Philippines (AAP) Pampanga and Angeles City chapters that the Provincial Government will extend help on programs that promotes Kapampangan art.
Pineda, who was guest speaker during the opening of the AAP exhibit at SM City Pampanga, said the Provincial Government is always ready to help in the promotion of Kapampangan art and extend assistance to projects of the AAP.
“We are ready to extend support for seminars and training of young Kapampangans who would like to learn the arts through the mentoring of AAP artists,” Pineda said, stressing that she is open to dialogue with the AAP on other possible areas of cooperation.
Pineda said Kapampangan art is distinct in the sense that it is more socially rooted on community and communal art. She added her administration is not just concerned with economic development but is also aware of the need to preserve local contemporary culture.
The AAP members expressed their gratitude to the Provincial Government’s commitment. AAP member and local artist Andy Ramos said they see a better future in their advocacy of promoting Kapampangan art.
Ramos, a visual artist, said Pineda is one of the few governors in the region that have shown personal delight in patronizing artworks made by local artists.
Pineda is a known patron of Kapampangan artists and maintains a strong collection of artworks from Francisco Maniago and Perfecto Mercado among others. Ramos said their organization has been advocating for grassroots activities like seminars, painting exhibitions and the likes.
Gov. Pineda said she expects to coordinate with the AAP chapters in the coming weeks on the planned programs.


Clark’s neighbor Angeles City provides nightlife and bars for entertainment. However, most guests prefer to stay inside Clark Freeport for safety and security reasons. It is a popular way for Manila residents to spend their weekends with a getaway trip out of town to wine and dine in Clark.

Traffic along the North Expressway NLEX from Manila to Clark is always light and the new Subic Tarlac Clark Expressway ScTex takes visitors straight into Clark Freeport without going through any towns and cities along the way.

The growing array of hotel resort accommodation, recreation and entertainment facilities, places to unwind and relax, fine dining and family restaurants, bars and pubs makes it increasing easy for tourists and visitors from Manila to spend quality time in a place of leisure in Clark, Pampanga.

While in Clark, it might be a good idea to enjoy an evening of wine-and-dine in the fine dining Yats Restaurant and Wine Bar that features an award winning 2700-line wine list. It is located in Mimosa Leisure Estate of Clark Freeport Zone.
