Due to the icy, slick conditions created around Dallas/Fort Worth late last week, Kettle Art Gallery felt it necessary to postpone the official opening of Holiday Presence IX.
The staff felt that it was better for everyone to arrive safely to celebrate the holiday, than risk the potential of accident & injury trying to make it out for the show.
The wait will be worth it as your favorite local artists will be on hand Thursday night to welcome one-and-all & officially kick-off Holiday Presence IX. So, join us Thursday night for what promises to be a jolly fun time for all!
Till then, stay safe and warm!
Kettle Art presents our Ninth Annual Holiday Presence exhibition, featuring affordable, unique, one of a kind gifts by local artists you know and love. Everything under $200.00 / most under $100.00.

Kettle Art recently announced a partnership with the Sixth Floor Museum to display and sell the artwork of local Dallas artists.
Here are a couple links that detail this partnership:
Kettle Art proudly presents ‘That 60’s Show’ a 1960’s flashback 50 years later. Opening Thursday 10 / 24/ 13, 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM in the front gallery at Kettle Art 2650-B Main. Deep Ellum, through Saturday 11 /29.
The 1960’s were the decade that seemed to change everything. From the approval of birth control by the FDA in 1960 to Neil Armstrong landing on the Moon in 1969. From the debut of Pop Art & the British Invasion to numerous assassinations of our civic leaders. American culture was in full swing, for better or worse, and only now can be seen in proper retrospect.
Join us for this unique visual interpretation of the era that changed it all featuring works by Jonothan Kimbrell, Brad Albright, Justin Clumpner, Miguel Aguilar, Dan Colcer, Patricia Rodriguez, George Wallace, Guy Reynolds, Brian A Crawford, Kurt Griesbach, Aralyn McGregor, Ange Fitzgerald, Nick Glenn, Ryan Theis and more… Video works will be provided by Robert Rockula Knott.
Please join us for the first exhibition ‘Phoenix’ in our new location, at 2650-B Main St in Deep Ellum. As declared back in April, when time was running low at our previous home, this would be the day we re-open. Thanks to the massive amount of people who believed in both our mission and target date, this proclamation is about to become true.
Since Kettle Art opened in 2005 we’ve given countless emerging and established North Texas artists a place to express themselves and show their works without inhibiti…on or restriction. We look forward to continuing this tradition at our new home as well.
Thank you all!
Featured artists for Phoenix include:
Justin Clumpner, Sean Fitzgerald, Carlos Donjuan, Cathey Miller, Judith Lea Perkins, Richard Ross, Patricia Rodriguez, Ryan Thies, Jason Janik, Richard Sharum, Sara Lovas, Derek Rankins, Jennifer Lafleur, Michelle Marie, George Wallace III, Danny Rose, Tyson Summers, Brian Hamm, Brian A Crawford, Corey Godfrey, Mark S Nelson, Cheryl Baker, Cabe Booth, Aralyn McGregor, Amber Campagna, Frank Lopez, Tom Currie, Justin Terveen, Lisa Lindholm, Dan Colcer, Erica Felicella, Clint Scism, Terry Allen, Scott Mankoff, Guy Reynolds, Miguel Aguilar, Jodi VonRotten, Brad Albright and Frank Campagna.
Thank you all!

As with any new venture, there are start-up costs. Kettle Art Gallery is no exception.
The new space at 2650-B Main Street is about three times bigger than the old Kettle location, but it needs a lot of work to make sure it is ready when we open to the public on September 19th.
During the next seven weeks, we will be hard at work, preparing the gallery while preserving the historic architecture and features of the building.
Line items we need to raise funds for:
- Lumber, hardware, sheetrock, tape and bedding, texture for new art walls
- paint for existing walls and new art walls
- electrical wiring upgrades
- lighting upgrades
- audio installation
- exterior signage
In order to meet this need, Kettle Art Gallery is asking for a little neighborly help to raise the funds necessary to make the new Kettle a beautiful place for people to see local art.
A CrowdTilt campaign has been started to help raise those funds:
Please think about opening up your wallet to support “the little gallery that could”.
Thank you for your continued support! We look forward to seeing you at the opening of “Phoenix” on September 19th at the new space at 2650-B Main Street in Deep Ellum.
Back in May of this year it was announced that Kettle Art Gallery at 2714 Elm Street in Deep Ellum would be closing its doors.
Of course, ever the showman, Frank Campagna made the following statement as if he already knew the future:
“This can be seen as the end of an era but may also be viewed as a new beginning. News of our relocation will come once the dust has settled. Please rest assured this is a giant step forward. Look for our return on September 19th.”
It appears as if the “Phoenix” will rise on September 19th. A giant step forward, indeed.
Kettle Art Gallery has found it’s new home in Deep Ellum only a block over from the “Classic Kettle” location. The space, located at 2650-B Main Street, is about three times bigger than the old space. This will allow Kettle Art Gallery to use it’s space in more ways to benefit the surrounding community.
Please join us on September 19th at the new Kettle Art Gallery location to witness a Phoenix rising from the ashes.
