Sculpture Derby - We're Hiring! - reCreate: Cambridge Street Studios - April 21 Workshop

New Stock + Derby Discounts

The roll doors are open and the warm spring air is fresh in the shop. Also fresh in the shop: reclaimed pews from a neighborhood church, extra chairs from a local prop shop, palm frond hand fans from a local scene shop, and much more. Rare, vintage, unusual... you never know what you might find. So whether you're producing a Shakespeare play or just having a tea party, our shop is the place to be.

With the
Kensington Kinetic Sculpture Derby approaching, our wide variety of low-cost material is just what you need for your kinetic sculpture. Derby participants will receive a 10% [or greater!] discount on select materials throughout April and May, so be sure to register for the Derby and then visit our shop to plan your project!

Andrew McManus, Anthony Ranalli + Jeremy Deck
of Cambridge Street Studios

"Cambridge Street Studios is Philadelphia’s premier academic atelier. We study academic drawing, painting and sculpture. Our goal is to represent nature in an accurate, unembellished manner, without any type of idealization, mannerization, and generalization. We are concerned most closely with academic art, and are interested in the study of classical art as a traditional part of an academic training. We are in firm belief that through countless hours of practice in drawing, and the study of the science of light on form, one may become capable of representing nature with a great deal of exactitude." These pieces feature frames built with reclaimed lumber and moulding from The Resource Exchange.
