The Philadelphia Sketch Club, America's oldest arts organization, is having a sort of New Membership drive this leap day -- artists, painters, sculptors and photographers, are invited to come down, check out the amazing space, and join. I'm not a member, but I'll probably join Friday. They've invited me to speak there twice and I love the atmosphere there (they have a pool table too). The place could use a little shaking up -- and the idea of a members-only club for artists tickles my inner elitist.
The Sketch Club is at 235 South Camac (Between Locust and Spruce and 12th and 13th.)
