Four Artist Vendors to Check out @ AFTCP 2022

This year’s Art for the Cash Poor (AFTCP) brings together artists from around the Greater Philadelphia area, all selling work for $200 and under. We’ve rounded up a few of these local vendors as a teaser for you to browse beforehand! Don’t forget to join them (and us!) at our 22nd annual AFTCP, June 4 from noon to 6 pm.

Alyse C. Bernstein‘s embroideries focus on animals and nature. The whimsy in her work is evident, with glittery beads and unconventional colors comprising lions, snakes, buffalo, and even soft pretzels! The novel ways in which Bernstein approaches animals comes from her upbringing as a city dweller, with access to these animals limited to local parks, zoos, and aquariums. The quaint ways Bernstein portrays these animals makes you want to take one home and keep your own pets company.

Dwayne Boone, aka the Boonie Groove, examines pop culture in both celebratory and investigative ways. His prints and paintings portray familiar people and objects, transforming them into his own vision. Boone is inspired both by masters like Matisse and Picasso, as well as funk, hip-hop, and R&B. These inspirations guide Boone into creating work that is lyrical, colorful, and full of life.These inspirations guide Boone into creating work that is lyrical, colorful, and full of life.

You may remember that back in December 2021, InLiquid worked with Photography Without Borders on Young Americans, where artist Ada Trillo worked with four PWB students in creating an exhibition about what it means to be an American. PWB will be joining us at AFTCP, showcasing their students’ works! Support this local organization that empowers young artists to tell their stories through photography to a wider audience.

As the subject of sustainability grows more and more prevalent, Carly D’Andrea was inspired to create a sustainable clothing brand, Flo’s Slow Fashion. With all clothes designed and made by hand, it’s a breath of fresh air from all the fast fashion floating around. These understated designs do remind one of the earth itself, with muted colors and thin strips throughout that recall creeks and rivers.
