Where Art & Music Collide: InLiquid talks Philly Music Fest 2018 with band GREAT TIME

Philly Music Fest 2018 is a few weekends away and here at InLiquid, we couldn’t be more thrilled!

 

The Philadelphia Music& Arts Festival is a non-profit endeavor – founded, produced and curated by Greg Seltzer. Our mission is to encourage the citizens of Philadelphia to SUPPORT YOUR SCENE. The Festival is both a testament and celebration of the exploding music scene in Philadelphia and a showcase of up and coming artists.

In addition to music, the Festival will highlight the food, beer and arts of Philadelphia. Local chefs will provide edibles, while all beer taps will be pouring only local craft beer. Local distilleries will handle cocktails. Local artists will display visual arts. The experience is an immersion in Philadelphia culture.

InLiquid got to sit down with one of the bands featured at the festival this year, GREAT TIME ; whose sultry, magnetic and funky first album, GREAT ALBUM , was released in April. We discussed how the Arts and Music community in Philadelphia is growing quickly and abundantly, and how creatives and organizations like InLiquid can further fuel conversations such as this to keep the community fresh and thriving.

 

Keep on reading for some great quotes from a great chat with GREAT TIME …

 

 

“I think it’s awesome when someone or a group of people create a space for all art forms to be intertwined… just the crossover of mediums I think naturally influences and inspires across the communities of music and art. In Philly, being able to make an effort to reach out and collaborate and see the community of artists has shown us that there’s so much talent. We just wanna keep digging in!” 

 

“We definitely think visually and a lot of our music is inspired by visuals. I know my lyrics come from looking outside…like greens and yellows and blues and then I literally even say those colors in the lyrics or something”

 

 

 

“One of our first experiences in Philadelphia was at a house show. I know the Philly house show scene is huge and we first got introduced to that two years ago…she opened up her home and had two amazing visual artists put their work up on the walls and we met tons of different artists and musicians downstairs in the basement. I mean it’s all so connected!”

 

 

 

 

 
 

“I just wanna see all the other bands perform! I really have been trying to see Orion Sun and Kingsley’s playing and then a bunch of other Philly people I don’t know, so seeing and hearing other people, and meeting new people…I’m really excited! Oh, and there’s free donuts! I do want a donut!

 

 

And when asked if they’d be visiting InLiquid’s vendor table at the festival this year…:

“Definitely, oh my god, I wanna be there. I’m gonna stay there!”

 

 

 

Make sure to stop by and catch InLiquid at the Philly Music Fest Friday and Saturday, September 28th and 29th!   

 

And you definitely won’t want to miss GREAT TIME‘s performance at the festival on Saturday, September 29th at 3:30pm !  

 

 

See you there!

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.

My art spans many disciplines and areas. Being a self taught, learning and experimenting has become an ingrained part of my practice and as such there is a diverse range of subject matter and on some occasions style.  Majority of my works are oil paintings, created in series, in a representational style,. Some of note are “Buddhas on Handmade Paper”, “Bicycles in Snow” “#Savetheelephants”. The common thread in my diverse art is the feeling of serenity and tranquility, with the ultimate objective in every painting to capture the harmonious existence of different elements in nature, that evidences life is strong, calm and beautiful.

Joe Vescovich's pieces are full of texture, layers and depth that can and need to be walked around and viewed form different points and perspectives. He engages the viewer to be active in the experience by encouraging interaction from differing perspectives. Many of his pieces have hints of sculptural qualities that pop from the wall. This creates shadows and movement within and outside of the piece.
