Take a Bite out of Benefit v.13

Farm Truck Philly.

This week, InLiquid spotlights 3D art – one of the many styles that will be appearing at Benefit v.13 on February 15. You can find an interview with four of the featured artists here.

In the midst of wrapping your spatial-temporal experience around sculptures and found-object pieces, don’t forget about the temporary, interactive 3D art in the Grey Area: i.e. the free food and drinks.

Enjoy our pre-party taste-sampler below:

Read the back of a craft beer bottle and it’s full of words that you might find in artist statements and exhibitions anywhere: color, texture, style. Dab your palette with some locally-based brews from Philadelphia Brewing Co. and discover the art of the ale

If you’re more attracted to substances of the sparkling variety, wander through glassworks as you sip from glassware filled with Palateur sparkling wine.

While the prices are heating up over fired designs in terra cotta, you can sample something fresh from the oven with pizzas by Rustica in Northern Liberties. Then nibble on some wraps from Soy Cafe – these mini soy sculptures will leave you feeling satisfied as a post-spinach Popeye.

In between admiring the handiwork of found object pieces, introduce yourself to the made-by-hand spreads provided by Farm Truck. The new Philadelphia food truck doubles as a mobile art gallery, transformed by the work of Gabe Felice.

These are just some of the businesses participating this year, but you can look forward to morsels from Marathon Grill, Philadelphia Distilling, and more.

Hungry yet? Treat yourself to a ticket.

Jennifer Baker is a visual artist working in varied media including: painting, monotype, sculpture, and installation. Her images of Northern Liberties document the changes in that Philadelphia neighborhood over a period of 30 years, from the fires and the wrecking balls of the 1980s and 90s to the runaway construction of the 2000s. Other images explore the central Pennsylvania town of Centralia where an underground fire has burned in a coal seam for over 50 years. These pieces have a roughness and immediacy in their execution that matches their subject matter. Her life size sculptures and installation pieces show another side of her interests, and most recently she has been working on a series of drawings documenting her life in the time of coronavirus. All of these pieces have in common an interest in narrative and a sense of place and memory.

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.
