Philadelphia Sculpture Gym Gallery presents Te(a)ch

Coming this April, the Philadelphia Sculpture Gym Gallery will be exhibiting local shop techs from the area’s art colleges. This show, entitled Te(a)ch, exhibits work from those who educate students and aid them in learning about shop equipment and the processes involved with being an artist. With this exhibition PSG hopes to show Philadelphia the artwork of educators and makers who are essential to the schools in this city. We also hope to show the students and graduates from these art schools their artistic options after graduating.

These instructors do much more than just shop upkeep. They spend time working with students and commit themselves to educating the younger artists in our community, putting other’s time and artwork ahead of their own. Te(a)ch will present the artwork of these educators in a group exhibition, demonstrating that these techs are more than the title they hold. They are extraordinarily talented artists themselves.

Artists and the institutions they represent include:

Kristin Lee Deady
Loo Bain
Tim Rusterholz
John Williams

Tyler Kline
Wes Valdez

John Greig Jr.
Ann Klicka
Morgan Dummitt

Philadelphia Community College
Roberta Massuch

John Pompetti

The opening reception will be First Friday, April 3rd from 6 – 9pm. The exhibition runs from April 3rd through 24th.

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.
