InLiquid Presents Catalyst at The Yard

February 11, 2019/ by Olivia Ramirez

We’re excited to announce our next art exhibit at The Yard: Center CityCatalyst, featuring works by Elyce Abrams, Jaime Alvarez, Tiantian Li, Enzhao Liu, Jenny Lynn, Gerri Spilka, Tremain Smith, and Scott Troxel, curated courtesy of InLiquid Art + Design.

Catalyst is not only our first exhibition of the year but also represents the launch of an exciting new partnership with curators InLiquid Art + Design. Since 1999, InLiquid Art + Design has been a vibrant force in supporting the visual arts in the Philadelphia area, and we’re thrilled to have their brilliant vision at The Yard.

We hope you’ll join us for this momentous occasion by attending the opening art reception on February 21st from 5:30-8PM. To attend, simply submit your RSVP here.

About the Art Exhibit

The title of the exhibition, Catalyst, comes from the idea of a person or thing precipitating an event. In this case, a new exhibition is a catalyst for both the education of and accessibility to artwork made by local (both of national and internationally renown) artists.

For every new space that InLiquid has the opportunity to curate and exhibit artwork, public exhibition acts as a catalyst for the discovery of art, whether it be by self-motivation or chance. Catalyst gives the opportunity for visitors and members at The Yard to casually learn about emerging and established artists of Philadelphia.

Each floor of The Yard will feature works by artists whose careers have flourished in Philadelphia. From textile art, to photography, to oil paint, each artist demonstrates a systematic precision that is pristine in its craftsmanship, delicate in its content, and universally enjoyed and purchasable with given QR codes included in each wall text.

Attendees will be able to meet the exhibiting artists, listen to short talks given by the artists, and network with like-minded creatives and entrepreneurs in The Yard’s community.

 


Special thanks to InLiquid Art + Design for putting together an incredible show. We’re looking forward to many more to come!

This exhibit is part of The Yard Art Program, which features seasonally rotating art exhibits and permanent collections across The Yard’s locations. You can read more about our current exhibits on our blog.
