Upper school junior, Liam Padua, was the third artist to showcase his art pieces in the Philippine Consulate General’s Mga Sinag ng Sining (Rays of Art), a monthly art exhibition highlighting the works of Filipino-American artists. His art exhibit was open to the public from December 5 to 23, 2022, and was his first-ever solo art exhibition.
Padua’s work consists of water-based acrylic paint, pencil, and ink. He is currently experimenting with oil paint.
The upper school junior received commendable achievements in several art competitions including the 2021 Congressional Art Competition Winner representing Guam, the 2021 TECO (Taipei Economic and Cultural Office) Art Competition Winner, the 2020 Lions Club International Peace Poster Merit Winner, and the 2020 Toyota Guam Dream Car Contest Winner. He was also the youngest artist participant in the 2017 GAX (Guam Art Exhibit).
Family and friends of Padua gathered on December 7th, where he was joined by Philippine Consul General Patrick John U. Hilado and Ms. Sandra Flores, Executive Director of the Guam Council for the Arts and Humanities Agency, for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially open the art exhibit.
