Betsy Westendorp’ Giclée Art Exhibit to Raise Funds for Typhoon Victims

Sun Life Philippines, in cooperation with Salcedo Auctions, is raising funds for the benefit of the recent typhoon victims with a special preview of Betsy Westendorp-Brias’ limited edition Giclée on canvas collection for select clients on November 23, 2020 from 6:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M.

During the preview, guests will be able to purchase the featured works of Betsy at a  special rate and will have the chance to interact with the artist herself to ask questions about her masterpieces.

“Art has the power to bring people together, and Betsy’s inspiring works give us the opportunity to unite and bring hope to those who have been affected by the onslaught of the recent typhoons,” says Benedict Sison, Sun Life CEO and Country head. “This is but one way for Sun Life to express its unwavering commitment to the Filipinos amid these difficult times.”

For his part, Salcedo Auctions Managing Director Victor Silvino expressed his appreciation to Sun Life for this alliance. “We are greatly honored by the chance to collaborate with Sun Life and an esteemed artist like Betsy Westendorp-Brias. Through this exhibit, Sun Life clients who are art enthusiasts will have the opportunity to delve deeper into the messages that Betsy conveys through her masterpieces,” Silvino said.

Born Isabelle Maria Westendorp, Betsy started painting at a very young age by creating portraits of her family. This passion paved the way for her fame as she connected with influential personalities. At the age of 21, she moved to the Philippines after marrying her husband Antonio ‘Tony’ Brias. In one of her trips to Spain, she was invited by then Philippine Ambassador to Spain to represent the Philippines during the Filipino Week of the Instituto de Cultura Hispanica in Madrid, where she wowed the crowd. One milestone of her career as an artist is when Don Juan Carlos, then King of Spain, commissioned her to paint his son, Don Felipe.

Betsy’s art career continues to flourish as she holds several art galleries here and around the world. Notably, she is one of those few artists in the country to receive cultural distinctions from two nations.

“Betsy Westendorp’s Limited Edition Giclee on Canvas Collection” will run 24/7 from November 23 to 28 for select Sun Life clients, with public access available on the last day. This event is presented by Sun Life Philippines together with Salcedo Auctions. For more updates, visit www.sunlife.com.ph or www.facebook.com/sunlifeph.
