Sunday, December 4th
11am - 5pm
Looking for unique, quirky gifts for this holiday season? Visit us on Sunday, December 4th for Art Mart. This is a fundraising gift market featuring different vendors from all over Philadelphia, a raffle and of course, warm beverages. Support local artists by finding the perfect gift, whether it's clothing, ceramic goods or artist's works! As makers & creators concerned with our communities well-being, all three artists will be donating half of their proceeds to Planned Parenthood.
A raffle and entry fee of $3 are to raise funding for artists Stephanie Price, Elizabeth Loux and Laura Farrell as they will traveling to Los Angeles in the spring to assemble a show, create a publication and hold discussions about DIY art scenes and artist responsibilities at Elephant, an artist-run space in Glassell Park, Los Angeles. Some of the work from Wishlist, our October exhibition at New Boone, will be traveling there as part of the project. The artist's publication will be circulated nationally and will serve as documentation of spaces, artists, and projects that have real DIY and anti institution practices. The goal is to support practices that provide alternatives in a society that traditionally does not sustain them. Please join us for this one day fundraising event to support these artists and our community!
Elizabeth Loux is a Philadelphia artist, who is currently researching art-run collectives, spaces and the DIY art scenes across the United States.
Laura Harris Farrell is a Philadelphia writer and maker who loves making all types of creative work: writing, visual, singing, dancing among other things. Current projects include This May Be Triggering, a collection of stories, poems, thoughts, sounds, zines and videos.
