Art in the Age of COVID-19

InLiquid wants to assure our audiences that we are closely following recommendations pertaining to the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). We have taken proper precautions for the safety and health of our staff and community by proactively closing our exhibition spaces and postponing our scheduled programming. While the InLiquid team will continue to work remotely, at the moment we will not allow any visitors into The Crane Arts Building for the safety of the public.

As we continue to follow the guidelines provided by health officials, we will continue to work on creating beautiful experiences by inviting you to visit us digitally on our website and social media channels. While we want to practice social distancing, we do not want to fall into the perils of social disconnection. As one of our member artists, Rachel Blythe Udell, says, “Creating feels life-affirming, as is experiencing art in all its forms, which we all really need right now!” You can see her exhibition, Pocket Dimension, right here.

So what does this mean for current InLiquid programming? Our exhibition Muses, Guardians, and Saints (works by Deborah Caiola) at the InLiquid Gallery will be extended through April and is available to be seen and experienced on our website and on Artsy. Same goes for our scheduled events for Structures at Park Towne Place, which have been canceled and will be postponed upon further notice. For future programming, we will continue to monitor the decisions made by the city’s department of health and have rescheduled all upcoming programs to a later time that is to be announced. For those who have won auction items from the 2020 InLiquid Benefit, we will contact you to arrange delivery of your items but are also willing to hold on to them for you to pick up once restrictions upon entry are lifted.

As many of you are (hopefully) at home self-quarantined, we want to hear from you! Tell us about the things that are kept near-and-dear to you, and the comforts they provide, by participating in our survey for Everyone is a Collector!

For your own safety, if you are experiencing respiratory illness, fever, or cold-like symptoms, please remain home and review the Philadelphia Department of Health’s recommended healthy habits and precautions. And please don’t forget to wash your hands often, use hand sanitizer, sneeze into your sleeve or a tissue, and do not touch your face without washing your hands.

Stay well and hope to see you all in person soon, but in the meantime, digitally.

Acrylic and watercolor grids and overlapping lines, gestured brush strokes and bold color are the first impressions when seeing the new work by Patricia Ingersoll. Ingersoll continues her studies of the merging of organic and geometric elements in nature and how they compare and contrast with the human condition. Her explorations of subjects found in nature, such as water, dense woods, vines, plants introduces challenges in the process of deconstructing the pictorial plane, or breaking it apart, in order to reconstruct it as individual, but equal parts. Through this process of mapping and diagramming with line, she is exploring and recording where these elements intersect pictorially.
