Gavel&Block, a subsidiary of Salcedo Auctions specializing in curated sales of art and design for a contemporary audience, is making it possible for one to own that first important art piece to start a collection. Its emporium sale on Saturday, Aug. 10 at the NEX Tower along Ayala Avenue, focuses on the discerning eye of the inveterate collector.
Featuring a diverse range of fine art as well as rare vintage pieces for the home, emporium also boasts of works by modern Filipino artists Arturo Luz, Alfonso Ossorio, Vicente Manansala, Oscar Zalameda, Emmanuel Garibay and Eduardo Castrillo.
Chair and Principal Specialist Richie Lerma says “with emporium, not only can they discover modern and contemporary art from local and international artists, they also have the chance to bring the art home to hopefully get started on their own personal collections.” —CONTRIBUTED
