Truly in these difficult times, it pays to be extra aware of your surroundings and help with your skills and talent. – If it’s given by the universe, then it’s cool to give back!
Yes, there is heart in art.
As we all know, the local art toy scene is getting bigger and bigger with names and creations getting much buzz not only here but from the international scene as well. To see these artists go out of their way for a project like this is admirable.
“Your Compassion Keeps Our Passions Alive” is an online exhibit and auction that showcases works of various artists from the local vinyl toy art scene. Here are some teasers on the works to be displayed and auctioned off:
Happening this October 16-18, 2020, this is what they have to say:
“As we continue to wage war against the pandemic, our healthcare workers are not only saving thousands of lives, they are also allowing us to keep our passion for toymaking alive. As a gesture of our gratitude, we are holding an online Art Toy exhibit and auction where 40% of the proceeds will be used to buy N95 masks for the Sagip Buhay Medical Foundation through the Department of Medicine of the Philippine General Hospital. This is our simple and humble way of saying thanks for letting us continue to pursue our love for our craft.”
