Reynaldo Cardenas, Administrative Officer of the Philippine Consulate General in New York, held his 2nd one-man exhibit at the Lobby-Gallery of the Philippine Center in New York this month.

The exhibit dubbed “Bagong Landas” presents 17 new works by Cardenas who has been involved in painting for the last seven years. Mr. Cardenas’ first solo exhibit at the Philippine Center took place in 2016.

Cardenas’ works explore the impressions made by the diverse places he has visited in connection with his work in the Philippine Foreign Service.

Approaching retirement from government service in June 2017, the latest exhibit also provides some ideas about the future artistic direction of Cardenas.

Cardenas is part of an informal group of artists from among staffmembers of the Philippine Consulate General in New York who have been studying various artistic mediums.

He also currently serves as Vice President of the Society of Philippine American Artists (SPAA).
