IN PHOTOS: Choice artworks from Kiukok to Malang in month-long holiday art sale

An artwork for a Christmas gift? It’s about time.
ANCX Staff | Nov 17 2018

If you’re looking to give a present that will stand out from the rest of the spruced-up packages this Christmas, never underestimate the statement of an artwork. It speaks of the recipient’s importance in the hierarchy of your Christmas list. Space Encounters Gallery, that art space that likes to blend its furniture with its art, has put together quite a collection for their month-long art sale event called Art Mrkt. More than 150 artworks will be up for sale and the prices, they say, are friendly. Everything starts at P12,000. So whether you’re keen on being generous to a beloved, or on rewarding yourself for surviving the third quarter stress at work, it might be a good idea to check out the selections below, which include serigraphs from Ang Kiukok and Mauro Malang, among other maestros. Also in this array are works from Oscar Navarro, JD Castro, Romulo Olazo, Paco Gorospe, and Felipe Adriano, Jr. Other notable pieces from the gallery’s backroom will also be up for grabs. If you see a piece (or two) you like, you can make your reservations. A catalog is available upon request.
