Our next art exhibition, titled "Tabi Tabi Po", is dedicated to celebrating Filipino folklore through urban contemporary art. The Kapre, Manananggal, Dwende, Tikbalang, and Aswang are just a sampling of these haunting creatures that will be brought to life in this exhibit. A percentage of the art sales will be donated to the victims of typhoon Ondoy and Pepeng through BAYAN Philippines and BALSA (Bayanihan para sa Sambayanan).

The curator, James "gaNyan" Garcia, has put together a killer lineup that includes Filipino artists from the US, Philippines, and even Norway.

The artists include:

Angry Woebots, Stuter, gaNyan, Marikina, Gem Mateo, CeCe Carpio, Pancho Abalos, Mark Canto, Miguel (Bounce) Perez, Darvin (Boohi) Vida, England Hidalgo, Jerrell Conner, Nic Cowan, Andre Sibayan, Ciriaco Sayoc II, J2, Marc Aure, Peabe, Marlon Sagana Ingram, Minette Mangahas, Dyno, Cat Chiu Phillips, Isabel (Pepper), Roxas, John Yoyogi Fortes, Allison Torneros, Mel Vera Cruz, Simbulan, Ray Haguisan

With this exhibition, we aim to not only bring Filipinos of all generations into the gallery, but also welcome the greater SF Bay Area community. Since SF Bay Area has the largest population of Filipinos in America to date, Garcia and 1:AM gallery invite all to come celebrate and learn more about the colorful traditions of the Filipino culture and help raise money for the typhoon victims.

The opening reception is on November 13th from 7 – 10:30pm and the show will run through December 12th. For more information visit or follow us on twitter at 1AM_SF.
