6:00 PM Exhibition: Blinding Darkness Distinction Gallery is excited to host our 3rd solo exhibition featuring artist Ross Jaylo. Both of the first two exhibitions sold out prior to opening day.

Ross Jaylo, a New York based Filipino painter and multi-media artist renders onto canvas his conception of an ideal love. A symbolic and passionate visualization of love that transcends beyond social norms and breaks the illusion that love must heed society's expectation of belief, social status, age, creed, race, gender and stereotypes. Love in its purest form.

Ross has a promising career ahead of him. He has had several solo and group exhibitions throughout the Philippines and Australia, and has participated in several group shows in the United States. Ross has received several awards including Cocolife "Colors of Life" National Painting Competition Grand Prize in 2006, University of Santo Tomas Benavides Outstanding Achievement Award in 2006, and Maningning Miclat National Painting Competition People's Choice Award in 2007.
