InLiquid Benefit 2019

 

February 1 + 2, 2019 · At the Crane Arts Icebox Project Space

Join Inliquid and our Honorary Chairs, Suzanne Perrault & David Rago of Rago Arts and Auction Center for the 2019 InLiquid Silent Auction and Benefit. 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.

This annual benefit is a major source of funds for InLiquid, a 501(c)(3) non-profit that supports and promotes visual artists while serving as a comprehensive hub and catalyst for our region’s artist 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 and installations 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. Through our listings, calendar, and online resources for both artists and art enthusiasts.

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

InLiquid is thrilled to welcome Rare Co. to this year’s Benefit. Rare Co. will be creating multiple room vignettes in the InLiquid Gallery space with carefully curated selections from their collection of vintage furniture, art, and home accessories. Rare Co. will be incorporating InLiquid art auction items into these spaces, offering guests the opportunity to see how the art might fit into their own home design. What’s more, each room will be completely shoppable as guests and online bidders will be able to bid on individual items, or even take home the entire room to furnish their space in one shot.

    • VIP Preview Reception: Friday Evening, February 1, 6-9pm

 

    • Main Event: Saturday Evening, February 2, 6-10pm

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.
