As the 2017 InLiquid Benefit approaches, we are excited to showcase the exclusive pieces to be sold at our silent auction. In preparation for our Main Event, we encourage collectors, both seasoned and new, to celebrate art, community, and their city while supporting their local arts organizations, such as InLiquid.
If you love the city of Philadelphia, commemorate it with Erica Harney’s Day One. Day One, a 13″ x 38″ painting with oil, acrylic, and mixed media on muslin, depicts the New Year’s Day Mummers Parade in Center City. The Mummers Parade, a tradition that has occurred every year since January 1, 1901, is the oldest folk parade in America. It features music, dancing, and amazing costumes. This is a worthy piece for the posterity of the tradition — not to mention your Two Street memories.
Erica Harney is a Philadelphia-based artist that was born in Westchester County, NY and grew up in the Saratoga Springs, NY area. She has exhibited across the U.S. and internationally.
