The annual Art in the Park, considered the country’s most affordable art fair, is going online this year.
It is holding an eight-day art fair online, hosted on the Art in the Park website, starting today, Feb. 21, until Feb. 28.
This isn’t the first time the popular art fair is being held online. In recent years, Art in the Park was held in one day at the Jaime Velasquez Park in Salcedo Village in Makati City, an event that attracts over 15,000 guests. However, because of quarantine restrictions due to the pandemic in 2020, it had to cancel its physical edition and hold an online edition—the first in its 14-year history.
Now, during its 15th anniversary, expect more of the same from the Art in the Park as it remains online: thousands of artworks from several exhibitors at relatively affordable prices.
More than 6,000 artworks from established and up-and-coming Filipino artists will be “displayed” on the Art in the Park website from its 60 exhibitors. The viewing started today at 6 a.m.
New pieces will be uploaded on the Art in the Park website every day until Feb. 28.
As in previous editions, the prices of the pieces go as low as P350 and are capped at P50,000.
You can browse artworks on the Art in the Park via gallery (including Silverlens, Avellana Art Gallery, Galerie Artes, among others) or category (painting, sculpture, drawing, print, photography, among others), and special exhibits (works by Henrielle Baltazar Pagkaliwangan, Jomike Tejido, Yvonne Quisumbing, Jon and Tessy Pettyjohn, and Joey de Castro).
Click on the art piece you like to view details about the work, its artist, and shipping arrangement (prices may or may not include shipping).
Payments can be made via Paypal, Gcash, and debit and credit cards.
