Philadelphia Sculpture Gym Gallery presents Process: METAL III

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania – January 16, 2015 – Coming this February, the Philadelphia Sculpture Gym Gallery will be exhibiting our third installment of Process: METAL. Metalworking is one of the core focuses of the Philadelphia Sculpture Gym and this exhibition will showcase metal sculpture in all of its forms. Seven artists chosen for their skills and varying techniques will present forging, casting, welding and fabrication processes within their works. “The permanence and strength of metal are some of its most attractive characteristics. The process of using heat and force to shape such a solid material is elemental and rich with the opportunity for a spontaneous expression of ideas. ” says Nicholas Ireys, one of the exhibiting artists.
Subject matter ranges from natural elements to man-made constructs such as architecture and society, and artists address issues such as communication, emotion and movement in their work.

Artists include:
Marc Bauman
Antonio Calzada-Charma
Gustavo Actis
Ann Klicka and Andy Upright
Nicholas Ireys
Connie Alba Ambridge

The opening reception will be First Friday, February 6th from 6 – 9pm. The exhibition runs from February 6th through 27th.

The Philadelphia Sculpture Gym Gallery is part of the Philadelphia Sculpture Gym, a community based workshop space that operates like a gym membership. A monthly membership grants members access to a wood shop, metal shop, jewelry shop, forging area, ceramics area and a mold making and casting area. The Philadelphia Sculpture Gym also offers group classes in various processes from welding and woodworking, as well as “personal training” (one-on-one training sessions). The Philadelphia Sculpture Gym was started by Darla Jackson in 2011 with the help of a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. For more information, please visit
