InLiquid’s long standing event, Art for the Cash Poor, is popular in the Philadelphia art community. It is an affordable art fair with all works priced $200 and below. The audience is made up heavily of curators, gallerists, art consultants, and art collectors. The event has been recognized, over the years, as a go-to place to find affordable art. It is an opportunity for people at all points to start collecting art or add to their art collection. While this event is specifically targeted toward affordable art, many artists have gained additional opportunities including commissions, exhibitions, and gallery representation.
- Affordable block-party style art sale that directly benefits visual artists, designers, and craftspeople
- Average attendance is 2k – 3k each year
- All work priced $200 and below
- All proceeds from sales go directly to the artists
- Open to artists, designers, and crafters who make and produce their own work
All participants are screened for quality and how they fit in with the event, submission does not guarantee acceptance. Artists may share a booth space at a discounted rate per each artist. Each artist must be screened and accepted individually (InLiquid will not match artists for shared spaces).
*The 0.6 mile span will ensure that participants and attendees can spread out accordingly to create the proper space needed in order to ensure safe social distancing. The event will be set up so as to follow all CDC Guidelines. Details and requirements might be subject to change given City and State requirements.

BWAC really loves art in all media. As well as looking for skill in the use of a variety of materials, BWAC looks for how well that medium relates to the concept or movement and how fully the artist’s intention or concept is presented and realized. The juror’s awards will reflect that artistic judgment. Virtually every medium is accepted including oil, acrylic, watercolor, photography, pastel, drawing, print, mixed media, sculpture, assemblage, and fabric. The juror is Brinda Kumar, Assistant Curator in the department of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City.
The broad theme of really Affordable Art $how 2018 encompasses all the possibilities of your imagination allowing you to think, play, and create outside the box with few inhibitions, restrictions, rules, or guidelines. Set yourself free to explore the possibilities of creativity.
