Art Fair at the Mall Showcases Pieces You Can Own
We’re in art fair mode once again! SM malls continues to be the fun venue for artists who show off their artworks and an opportunity to reach buyers from all walks of life. Such is Art For Everyone, an SM Supermalls initiative since 2016. We’re helping artists broaden their reach while giving everyone an opportunity to discover and appreciate art – and even own pieces of it.
Art From All Around
Rolling out at selected SM Supermalls, this year’s exhibit celebrates artist diversity, bringing together the works of new artists and hobbyists, art enthusiasts all the way to renowned artists and art groups. In Bacolod City, this diversity is celebrated through the works of upcoming artists, artist groups and art organizations or foundations. There are paintings of all sizes, sculptures and craft pieces, and they’re all for sale. With the diversity of genres covered, there’s bound to be a piece that will appeal to everyone.
Affordable Art: Pieces Start at P100!
By providing artists exhibit space to share their art, SM promotes the local art scene as well. The pieces for sale are affordable: anywhere from P100 to P65,000. Mallgoers will find fair a delightful opportunity to buy and own pieces from rising stars and masters. There are a lot of pieces to look at that it’s easy to get lost in thought as you take in what they each try to convey. Buying art is hassle-free, too. Look around, and if there’s a piece you simply must have, let the exhibit attendant know and they’ll ring it up, wrap it and it’s yours.
