The InLiquid + Blick Micro-grant is Still Open to Qualified Artist Members!

InLiquid is proud to announce year three of our partnership with Blick Art Materials to offer the InLiquid Microgrants Program, exclusively for our Artist Members. This is a special member benefit and is currently for those working on a project that will be publicly exhibited in the next 18 months (as of each application round deadline)—this can include exhibitions, public commissions, and more. The purpose of this funding opportunity is to assist artists in covering necessary material costs (as funding will be awarded in the form of Blick gift cards, redeemable in-store only). All submissions will be reviewed by an Advisory Committee consisting of artists and professionals from the region’s arts and culture community (not InLiquid staff). The committee will meet quarterly.

As a collaboration between InLiquid Art + Design, Blick Art Materials, part of the micro-grant gives each winning artist a chance to show a demo at Blick’s Center City location on Chestnut Street.  Don’t miss your to chance to demonstrate and discuss technique with other professional artists and the public of Philadelphia.

The deadline for the third quarter round of the InLiquid Microgrant program is closely approaching and the applications are here!

Matthew Hall presented his accordion fold bookmaking:

 

 

Bhavisha Patel presented still life in oils:

Fran Lightman Gibson a Philadelphia painter working primarily with oil on canvas.
I attribute the source of my artistic inspiration to my love, fear, and awe of nature as it both represents and defines the tension and optimism of life. My “Take Any Road Series” encourages the viewer to have the confidence to experience life no matter how difficult or confusing, beautiful, or powerful. All of this exists with an underlying structure of assumptions.
I think we all see the world a little differently and feel our own experience uniquely.  I paint using what all of my senses have given to me as the experience.  When I paint the sky, I am feeling the wind, putting it to music in my head, remembering the smell of the chance of rain, tasting the air, seeing the clouds dance.

Karen Hunter McLaughlin is a lifelong Philadelphia artist who has worked in traditional 2-D mediums as well as steel wire sculpture. Current work themes are a congruence of large format, multilayer prints creating 2-D inhabitable virtual-vistas, and a collection of smaller prints that focus on human connection, much like the ripple effect of a stone thrown in water.
