They're all such steals!

Art has always come off as elusive and unreachable to most who don't exactly have the luxury or the interest to delve into it. But not only is it ostensibly set on an ivory tower, there's also a notion that art pieces are extremely expensive and, therefore, not worth it, except if you're either some avid collector or a tita living in BGC or Ayala with too much money to show off.

It's exactly this pretentious perception of art that auction house Gavel and Block seeks to remedy. A subsidiary of Salcedo Auctions, they're taking all that's scary and intimidating about the art world and are introducing them to a younger contemporary market of aspiring or emerging collectors. Their acquired pieces range from iconic paintings by national artists, to more affordable yet equally gorgeous works by unknown painters. Along with these are rare fashion finds and prints, antique furniture, fine dainty cutlery, and a whole lot more. Whether you bid with your friends, your parents, or you enter the world of art and auctions all by yourself, there's always something for everyone and anyone with the simplest keen appreciation for all things valuable and beautiful.
