Great news for both art and science fiends.

Pasig-based art gallery Space Encounters is holding an online exhibit that kicked off this week and will run until the end of May, and a portion of the profits will be donated to a local scientific research facility to fight COVID-19.

Local artists like Jem Magbanua, Nonie Cruzado, Wipo, and Mark “KDLT” Copino will be exhibiting new and old works, and 25% of the profits raised from the exhibit will be donated to the University of the Philippines Medical Foundation.

This work by conceptual artist Wipo, titled “Can’t Smell You Anymore” is among the originals on offer.

As are these seemingly post-apocalyptic portraits of “Drifters” floating over the cityscape by painter Nonie Cruzado.

Reservations are welcome, but buyers will need to pay in full within two days via bank transfer, according to the gallery. Pickup and delivery of the sold artworks will start after the enhanced community quarantine is lifted.
