I have no words…I’ve been swooning over these pieces by Matthew Simmonds since I saw them last night.
Oh hi. Did you hear? PSG is opening this month.

OH MY GOD! PSG IS OPENING THIS MONTH!!!!!!
(Let’s just take a moment and talk about how long I’ve been waiting to say that…Since April 2011. Yep. This would be why I’m so excited. Ok, ok…back to business.)
All the wonderful and exciting details are coming soon, and this is sure to be an exciting week here on the blog, so stay tuned. For now, I’m going for one last push to raise the last bit of money we need to finish up the space and I’m doing it the best way I know how…by making art. That’s what this place is all about…and I feel so lucky every day that I am in the Sculpture Gym able to make my work (you know, with all that time between building stuff, hanging shows and setting up the shops….) This place is the ultimate bond of art and community…art and community have built it. WE made this happen! Whether you joined as a Charter Member because you are an artist or a maker, or supported us through our Kickstarter or Lucky Ant campaigns because you support the arts, or donated time or materials or equipment, or just told your friends about us…YOU helped build this place through your support. When the Knight Arts Challenge took a chance on this little idea back in 2011, I could never have dreamed how it would grow, how you all would help it grow…and we aren’t even open yet! So just imagine what is to come… Thank you all…for everything. And now for your regularly scheduled blog post:
HOW IT WORKS:
10×10 is a series of 10 different small sculptures that I’ll be making as a fundraiser to benefit the Philadelphia Sculpture Gym. This piece is first up in the series! Each sculpture will be an edition of 10 (meaning each sculpture will only be cast 10 times.) After the 10th edition of this piece is sold, the 2nd sculpture in the series will be offered. Once the 10th edition of the 2nd sculpture is sold, the 3rd sculpture in the series will be offered, and so on. Each sculpture will be offered at the discounted price of $100 each. All proceeds will go to the Philadelphia Sculpture Gym.
OTHER THINGS TO NOTE:
All pieces will be cast in Hydrocal and finished with a black graphite patina (See last photo for example of finish. The first 4 photos show the piece in clay.)
Each piece will be signed and numbered. Each piece will be shipped within 2 weeks of ordering. If you live in Philadelphia and prefer to pick it up, please let me know and shipping will be refunded to you.
