The InLiquid Benefit: Everyone is a Collector – February 1 + 2, 2019 · At the Crane Arts Icebox Project Space

InLiquid Art + Design will lead into its 19th year and pave its way towards its 20th anniversary as they host their annual benefit and silent auction on February 1st and 2nd, 2019. Friday, February 1st will be the special VIP Preview night. Saturday, February 2nd they will host an early Young Professionals Bruch and Saturday evening, the Main Event will conclude the annual soiree.​ The honorary chairs will be ​Suzanne Perrault & David Rago of Rago Arts and Auction Center​. A celebration of contemporary art, design, and craft, this much-anticipated event is not only a fabulous social happening but also a showcase for exceptional contemporary art encouraging all who attend that ​everyone is an art collector. ​ In addition to artwork, many local businesses have donated gift certificates, items, and experiences that will be part of the auction as well. The auction site will be officially open on January 14th where bidders can cast their bids early.

This Silent Auction is an Art Invitational featuring 200+ works of contemporary art, design, and craft. The auction will also consist of donated items and gift certificates highlighting the regions best businesses and restaurants; from cutting-edge to the refined.

This annual benefit is a major source of funds for InLiquid’s annual programming. Proceeds support our 501(c)(3) non-profit that serves and promotes our visual artists while being a comprehensive hub and catalyst for our region’s visual arts community. As InLiquid’s major fundraiser, the Benefit raises funds so that InLiquid can continue to promote Philadelphia’s burgeoning art scene. From our own programming of exhibitions across the city and in our own new InLiquid Gallery to fulfilling our mission of promoting both our Artists Members and the Philadelphia Visual Art Scene at-large, InLiquid has committed 19 years to activate Philadelphia-based artists and grow its art scene.

InLiquid’s annual event continues to grow in popularity attracting a diverse crowd of curators, collectors, art lovers, influencers, and professionals.

Peace Guard 2 (2016) by Shepard Fairey 24”x18” screenprint. This image is loosely a sequel to Fairey’s Peace Guard from 2008 and serves as a reminder that pushing for peace, ironically, requires a militant vigilance itself.

Cloud and Scale Jar by Cary & Dave Ceramics 10”x5”x4” Majolica glazed, wheel thrown terra-cotta “Working collaboratively in clay has come as an extension of sharing a life together. As artists, we are mutually attracted to the humanity in the meticulous, hand-painted surfaces of Iznik pottery, Italian majolica and Mexican talaveras in their consideration of a form in its entirety. We are interested in how two-dimensional ornamentation is transformed when placed on a three dimensional, curvilinear surface. The soft, rounded contours necessitated by the majolica medium create the perfect canvas for drawing in the round. Alternating between organic and geometric designs on wheel-thrown forms our current work explores fluctuating themes and motifs from the natural world to create converging patterns that fully envelop a surface.”

Peaches and Wine by Dominic Episcopo 11”x14” digital print “Like in many Italian-American households, food was the cultural centerpiece of the home I grew up in. On any given Sunday, we would have a dozen or more people over for dinner. Food was a way to celebrate, to mourn, to heal, or to simply enjoy each other’s company. Even when there wasn’t a special occasion, it was time well spent, enriched by family, friends, and dishes to remember. Now, as an homage to my mothers and grandmothers recipes, and to the people who I’ve shared them with over the years, I have set forth to capture their essence in this heartfelt project, “Nana’s Recipes”. This was always meant to be more than a photography project or “recipe book”, although I didn’t realize that until far into it. It is an autobiographical story, steeped in memories and stories that my mother and Nana passed along to me, and that I am now proudly sharing with the broader world beyond our family table.”
