Pilipinas Shell’s 54th National Student Art Competition (NSAC) Virtual Gallery is now available for viewing the top 40 artworks from 4 categories: Digital Fine Arts, Oil-Acrylic, Sculpture, and Watercolor. All the proceeds from the sale go to these young student artists whose pieces shone in the competition.
During the 54th NSAC culminating event, Lorelie Quiambao-Osial, Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corporation President and CEO, expressed to the young artists her confidence in their ability to make a difference in a world that is slowly rebuilding itself after a major crisis.
While the prospective buyers can also view the complete list of the top 40 artworks of each category in the Buyers Guide. By downloading the order form from the Virtual Gallery website, art patrons can purchase the physical artworks by bank transfer and then receive the masterpieces within five working days.
The first Virtual Gallery was launched during the 53rd NSAC in December 2020, as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic’s shutdown of major galleries and museums. Previously, after each year’s NSAC awarding ceremonies, the winning pieces were held in various exhibits in public venues such as Robinsons Galleria, Virra Mall, Shangri-La Plaza, Ayala Museum, and Glorietta. The Virtual Gallery has made it easier for the winners to promote their pieces, the patrons to access them, and for the general public to view the art from the comfort of their homes.
