Art for the Cash Poor 2018

Art for the Cash Poor: June 16, 2018

Art for the Cash Poor is a fabulous annual block party-style event that allows local artists the chance to show and sell their work directly to the public in a lively social atmosphere.

The 19th installment of InLiquid’s Signature Summer Event Art for the Cash Poor made a special move (this year only) to the Spring Arts District of Callowhill in partnership with Arts + Crafts Holdings for a one-day, outdoor-only, art festival on the parking lot next to Love City Brewery, just behind Union Transfer. This year’s event was a giant step towards a festive transformation to this evolving neighborhood, fully activated by artists and local organizations.

Art for the Cash Poor features artists, designers, and crafters who make and produce their own work. All work is to be sold for $199 and below.

 

The Kickoff Party

at Love City Brewery

Celebrating a strong start for Art for the Cash Poor 2018, while raising money to support the AIDS Fund, at the newly opened home of Love City Brewing Company in Callowhill, located at 1023 Hamilton Street, guests received an exclusive preview of several selected vendors of Art for the Cash Poor’s Main Event while enjoying complimentary Love City beers, wine, specialty cocktails, and catering by 13th Street Kitchens. The evening was DJ’d by Matt Beierschmitt a.k.a DJ Sharyn Stone.

Also, part of The Art for the Cash Poor Kickoff celebration was the unveiling of a mural on the roll gate adjacent to the new Love City Brewery by queer Philadelphia artists Santiago Galeas and Eva Wǒ, celebrating 30 Years of Philadelphia Pride! This mural is made possible to the Spring Arts District of Callowhill by the Mayor’s Office of LGBTQ Affairs, Arts and Crafts Holdings and InLiquid!

Born in Buenos Aires, I grew up immersed in energy and color, inspired by the people, the art and architecture, the variance, intricacies and connections of colors and patterns. Today, with my Argentinean roots embedded in my soul, I employ an array of techniques to create an impressionistic series of autobiographical works.

I Found My Voice Through Art. As women in a patriarchal society, we often stick to our roles until we can’t anymore. WE WAKE UP!   We feel different. The world looks like a different place. We breathe the air like it wasn’t there before. I come from a long line of activists and art lovers. My grandmother was in the Red army in Russia, immigrated here and marched with the suffragettes. My mother was a Democratic committee woman in a Republican neighborhood getting doors slammed in her face. My art reflects and represents current events in performing arts and politics. People in the news inspire me... their movement, their expression, their passion for change. Look at the eyes of my portraits. What do they see?  What have they seen?  What are they feeling?   Happiness, sadness, fear, defiance, courage... each has their own story. My paintings are like family members. There is an emotional part of me in every painting. When they sell, I feel a loss. I go back and look at the images to keep them close.

Jenn is a painter! Mostly she's an oil painter, though she's been known to use just about any medium available at a given moment.

She Loves to paint. It's pretty much all she wants to do.
Shes Loves to paint the world and the beautiful things in it — 
and she Loves that people really Love her paintings of our beautiful world and the beautiful things in it!

There is nothing really special about Jenn, she's just painter who paints... just about anything, just about all the time. 

P.S. She's a bit of a formalist — her world is made up of line, color, shape, form, structure, composition and plasticity. And, while she paint from observation, the subject of the painting is not her objective. The process of painting is her objective — the process of how to best use the medium, often oil paint, to create and subjugate form on the two dimensional surface of the canvas.
