Collection: Esther Garcia
Esther's statement reveals her altruistic mindset. She opened her own gallery in Loyola Heights after graduating cum laude in Fine Arts at the University of the Philippines in 1998. Her gallery, the MSG gallery, was where she held art workshops. Esther later on organized her students and formed the Amber Group. The thrust of her gallery being precisely to provide exposure to the art of her students, it was there that Esther mounted group shows to showcase their output. Sadly though, even if the Amber Group is still active to this day, Esther had to close her gallery after ten years for health reasons, and also to give more time to her family.
