By J. Kyle Keener

 For nearly a decade, starting in 1985, photographer and PSG charter member, J. Kyle Keener produced  many of the most memorable images to grace the pages of the Philadelphia Inquirer Sunday Magazine. He recently moved back to Philadelphia to open his KeenerVision Studio gallery and work space in Fishtown. At our June 28th Opening Party, Kyle will bring his portable studio and considerable talent into the Philadelphia Sculpture Gym for a charity portrait fundraiser to benefit the PSG. For a minimum donation of $20 per sitting Kyle will send you  a signed 11"x14" print and a digital image via email. He suggests you bring along a meaningful object, a favorite piece of art, a tool of your trade or whatever you like, to use as a prop. 

Last week to get your Charter Membership! 

(Until the end of the Grand Opening Party)

How does it work? Charter Memberships are being offered until our opening party on June 28th. If you sign up with by then, you will get a Full Time Membership at the discounted rate of $100/month for the life of your membership.  (The regular full time membership rate will be $225/month once we open.)

What does that mean? This allows you unlimited access to our woodworking, metalworking, mold making and casting shops during our proposed hours of operation, 11am-11pm, 7 days per week.  

Am I locked into a contract? Nope. You can stop your membership at any time. The only thing is that if your membership lapses and you decide to rejoin later, you'll have to rejoin at the regular rate.

Well what about that safety training course? Charter members get the safety training course for free! (The safety training course is normally $50 and includes personal safety equipment.)

What if I'm a student? You get a 25% discount on our Charter Membership rate with a valid student ID. Your monthly rate will be $75/month until you graduate, then it will switch over to the regular Charter Member rate of $100/month.

What are some other benefits of being a Charter Member? Our Charter Members get a 10% discount on classes, lectures and storage, free entry into all juried shows, multiple member show opportunities per year, a 70/30 split for all gallery sales (60/40 for non-members),  access to free workshops, links to your website on our blog/website, inclusion in our member artist registry, a members only newsletter and a built in community of awesome co-members.

What if I don't know how to use the equipment? We'll offer multiple opportunities for you to get comfortable on the equipment, starting with the safety training course. Shop monitors will always be there to guide you when questions come up or assistance is needed. Or if you think you just need more time, there will be low cost, small group lessons on wood and metal shop basics. Or if you'd like more one on one time, you can sign up for low cost personal training sessions. We want to make sure that everyone is comfortable on the equipment and using it properly, so we're always there if you need help!

Do I have to be a sculptor? Nope. Everyone and anyone is welcome...artists, crafters, makers, DIYers, hobbyists, and more. If you need a wood shop, metal shop or mold making and casting area to make whatever it is you make, or plan to make, come on down...

How do I sign up!?! Print and fill out the membership form. Send in the filled out form with your check or Pay via the Pay Pal link HERE (this covers your first month of membership) and we'll sign you up!
