Salcedo Auctions has announced a new venture bringing together two of everyone’s favorite things. Gavel & Block, a subsidiary of Salcedo Auctions, is staging a three-day event that will combine art and fine food. The inaugural event will be the first of many as Gavel & Block plans to host quarterly events marrying art, design, and various collectibles for a contemporary audience.

With art by Gavel & Block, food by The Gourmand Market’s Trish Panlilio and culture collective Green Sun as the stage, the unique weekend will be a feast for the senses. “The Gourmand Market thrives on its creed, ‘Eat Well, Live Well,’ and is, therefore, more than discovering purveyors and delectable dishes. It is also a platform where people of various interests can come together and celebrate their passions,” said the team behind the favored marketplace, Trish Panlilio, Dara David-Roa, and Dong Ronquillo.
