SAGE will officially open a project space at 333 South Street. There will be a five person exhibition downstairs based on the theme of repurposing and recycling. Because of the dire economic situation a number of stores have become vacant on South Street in Philadelphia. A number of arts groups are taking empty storefronts and repurposing them to showcase their work and bring new energy to the area.
Artists Henry Bermudez, David Foss, Jon Manteau, Vincent Romaniello, and Rob Solomon will use cast-off materials, excavated finds and remnants of the former boutique itself, in the creation of paintings, assemblage, video and installation work.
On the upper level these artists will join Karen Baumeister, Paul Behnke, Nic Coviello, Jim Erikson and Michelle Marcuse for a members group exhibition that will change over the March and April programs.
Wednesday, March 4
12 - 6pm
