In line with the celebration of National Arts Month, the Gateway Gallery will be conducting two back-to-back talks on art and cultural management on February 24, 2022.
Art conservator June Mercy Poticar-Dalisay will discuss preventive conservation, qualifications of a conservator, factors of deterioration, and care of artworks in “Adding Value to Artworks through Preventive Conservation”. Manager of Artemis Restoration Services, Dalisay has done restoration works on the Central Bank art collection, the Manila Hotel art collection, and the PNB art collection. She has restored three murals done by Manansala and Tam Austria, and continues to conserve and maintain the collection of the Development Bank of the Philippines.

Roxas Foundation since 1998. She has worked on the Museyo Mindoro website as one of her personal creative projects.
Cultural workers, art students, artists, librarians, and museum/gallery workers who need to add knowledge for application in their current or future work in the cultural field are invited to join.
