Call for Art –
Deadline August 1:
This exhibition of objects takes a close look at the all too frequently unnoticed objects that many artists are turning to for inspiration or the creation of their art.

More info:

Space Whale Orchestra, an improv chamber music ensemble, interprets the work of #InLiquidMember Jacqueline Unanue - who in turn receives inspiration for her pieces from classical music.

The performance, based on Dvořák’s final symphony, takes place on Sunday, July 27, 3 - 4:30 pm, at 3rd Street Gallery.

More info on the event:

Browse work by Jacqueline in the album below.

The final two #InLiquidMembers will be installing at Spruce Street Harbor Park this weekend.

Saturday, July 26:
Tyler Kline is an installation artist using provocative materials, chance, and error to create abstract objects and environments that border on the familiar but defies a straight-forward interpretation. During AiO, he created a moveable installation out of wood and spray paint on the apex of the Schuylkill trail, emphasizing location, and creating a sculpture that was also an environment.

Sunday, July 27:
Susan Benarcik hand-crafts architectural sculptures using discarded man-made and natural materials. Her work explores natural forms, mimicking nature in a way that the objects are at once natural-looking and other-worldly. During AiO, she gathered materials from the Schuylkill banks and created several site-specific hanging illuminated sculptural installations.


Friday Forward: 7.25.14


Friday, July 25, till 10 pm – #OpeningsReceptions
Art Arm’s Length + The Garden of Alternate Histories:
Take a moment to resolve that persistent identity crisis with a double-exhibition at Paradigm. Lauren Rinaldi explores the self-portrait at arm’s length, challenging the curated caricature of the modern selfie with exposed, colorfully imperfect windows into self-worth.

Remember when those Choose-Your-Own-Ending Goosebumps books finally gave you a false sense of security? Relive the thrill with an interactive video installation by Sarah Bereza and Fall on Your Sword, in which the viewer controls the piece. While you’re there, be sure to say hi to gallery co-founders and InLiquid members Sara McCorriston and Jason Chen of Juggling Wolf.
Paradigm Gallery + Studio, 803 S. Fourth Street, Philadelphia
