PSG members and friends are invited to the grand opening reception for J. Kyle Keener's new KeenerVision Studios: Gallery de Light, located at 1704 Frankford Avenue, in the Fishtown neighborhood of Philadelphia. The gallery space and portrait photo studio will open amid our neighborhood's First Friday evening this coming Sept. 6th, 7-10pm. Fore more than 30 years Kyle has been one of the nations leading photojournalists with a specialty in studio lighting. This long relationship with light, combined with his intense interest in the history and artifacts of the crumbling industrial infrastructure of his hometown Detroit, have illuminated the sculptural work that he does today. He has gathered a huge collection of objects from industrial ruins that are then reborn into one-of-a-kind lamps. "For generations the hands of blue-collar working people fashioned these objects and made the things that made America", said Kyle, "I honor their hard work by giving these objects a new life as objects of art for new generations to experience."
