The Bravery Of Expression: Tales Of The Psyche At Park Inn By Radisson Bacolod's Art Cove

The Tales of the Psyche: Navigating Our Mental Odyssey is the newest exhibit at the Art Cove, Park Inn by Radisson Bacolod’s built-in art space. This is the eighth installation of the gallery, featuring the works of Ms. Sheila Marie Basio, marking her third solo exhibition.

Sheila Marie Diola-Basio hails from the city of Escalante, Negros Occidental. She is a retired teacher, meditator, yogini, and an active mindfulness advocate. She is a self-taught artist, married, and blessed with three amazing sons.

Over the years, without formal study, she has explored the beauty and challenges of watercolor, oil, and acrylic. Her works represent her battles with mental illness, self-empowerment, and choosing life over defeat.

“Art has always been a medium for expression, and through these works, I have attempted to capture the complexities, struggles, and triumphs associated with mental health. Each piece tells a story — sometimes of despair, sometimes of hope, but always of resilience.” Sheila Marie Basio said.

Her artworks address mental health as a topic that touches everyone, whether directly or indirectly, and she hopes this exhibition sparks conversations, evokes empathy, and offers solace to those who might be struggling in silence.

“Here at Art Cove, we consider ourselves privileged to host such a profound and timely exhibit. In an age where the importance of mental health cannot be overstated, through Ms. Sheila’s art, we are encouraged to appreciate beauty and embrace the full range of our shared human experience,” said Archie Javellana, Park Inn by Radisson Bacolod’s Rooms Division Manager.

The ribbon-cutting was led by the Tales of the Psyche artist, Ms. Sheila Marie Basio, with honorable guests Art Association of Bacolod–Negros Treasurer Patty Jane Ku Ong, City Councilor of Victorias Hon. Joji Larraga, and was assisted by Park Inn by Radisson Bacolod’s Rooms Division Manager, Mr. Archie Javellana.

The exhibit was also graced by the presence of Mr. Charlie Co, co-owner of Orange Project and a Filipino contemporary visual artist known for works with a strong socio-realist theme.

Tales of the Psyche will run until September 07, 2024. For inquiries and artwork purchases, guests may visit the hotel’s front desk or call +63 34 706 888.
