Since 1999, InLiquid has been connecting artists and audiences in the Philadelphia region. In New Now V, the fifth annual new member showcase, the InLiquid gallery becomes an immersive catalog of what these artists have to offer, displaying contemporary works from a wide variety of artists across mediums, themes, and perspectives.
InLiquid artist members from this year’s cohort embrace a lack of control, leaning into intuition, spontaneity, and imperfection. They explore the potential in the creative process; employing techniques ranging from assemblage, collage, abstraction, quilt making, neon bending, and filmmaking. They make reference to history, science, math, and pop culture, inviting viewers to engage in conversations about big issues like our national divisions, societal inequities, the climate crisis, and a desire for spiritual healing. All this with the hope that viewers will see something of their own lives represented in the gallery and possibly question their own preconceptions.

The InLiquid Gallery is the physical expression of InLiquid’s mission as a hub for visual art in Philadelphia. As a non-profit providing opportunities and a platform for enhanced exposure for local artists, The Gallery is the first permanent space that offers rotating curation of our artist members’ work. The Gallery aims to provide the local and visiting public with a social destination where artwork can be seen, enjoyed, experienced, and purchased.
