InLiquid is pleased to present our annual summer art sale at Crane Arts located at 1400 N. American Street. Based on the premise that everyone can be an art collector, AFTCP is one of the longest running art festivals in the Kensington/Fishtown area. The best part: all works, by both emerging and established artists alike, are priced at $199 and under. This is a one-of-a-kind event where first-time collectors can speak with artists firsthand about their process, inspiration, and above all: find their niche within the arts scene.

Field + Supply began in 2014, as a modern interpretation of a traditional arts and crafts fair.  It consists of a carefully curated selection of makers highlighting goods, old and new, from a variety of studios and workshops representing a wide range of crafts. 
This multi-day experience has grown to include delicious food and drinks from the area, along with hands-on activities as well as live music.  
This year, we've moved just around the bend to a nearby apple orchard, where we'll be able to accommodate even more makers, additional workshops, happy hours, private dinners, a Biscuit Buffet and a rousing Barn Dance! 
We hope you can join us over Columbus Day weekend, October 7th, 8th, and 9th at Hasbrouck House and Stone Ridge Orchard for a truly incredible gathering. Look forward to seeing you there!
