Over 50 years ago, the Saturday Group of Artists was formed in the corners of coffee shops in Manila by artists who got together to talk, practice and share their passion for art. The group takes pride that 7 of our National Artists BENCAB, ARTURO LUZ, JOSE JOYA, VICENTE MANANSALA, CESAR LEGASPI, H.R. OCAMPO, BOTONG FRANCISCO were former members of their group.
