The new InLiquid Gallery, housed inside Crane Arts, "aims to provide the local and visiting public with a social destination where artwork can been seen, enjoyed, experienced, and purchased." On Wednesday, they'll debut their inaugural exhibition Entrances and Exits, "a show that takes a playful approach to surface and the picture plane. The artwork contains multiple points of view, creates and breaks illusion, and subverts traditional notions of pictorial space and compositional elements." The opening reception will feature cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and beer from Philadelphia Brewing Company.

The date: Wednesday 3/14, 6-8pm

The current exhibition at the Moore College of Art & Design pays tribute to the Guerrilla Girls, a radical collective of female artists who made efforts to promote feminism and social change in the art world of the '80s and '90s. With the exhibit closing on March 17th, now's the last chance to see "their most daring and rarely seen international projects, which trace the Guerrilla Girls' artistic and activist influence around the globe." On March 15th, exhibition curator and collective member Neysa Page-Lieberman will host a discussion and live performance.
