On Thursday, December 4th from 7:00pm to 10:00pm, Kettle Art Gallery proudly presents their tenth annual holiday gift show “Holiday Presence 10” featuring small works and unique, artisan-crafted gifts made exclusively by local artists. Works by Judith Lea Perkins, Brad Albright, Monica Moody, Johnny Hawkins, Emily Hawkins, Clint Scism, Megan Petasky, Clay Stinnett, Sarah Zamora, Michael Francis, Jody Pham, Cabe Booth, Corey Godfrey, George Wallace III, Michelle Marie, Richard Sharum, Cheryl Baker, Justin Clumpner, Jennifer Lafleur, Brian Crawford, Darlene Schaper, Larry Carrey, Patricia Rodriguez, Nick Glenn, and more will be featured. Most pieces will be available for under $100.00.
Kettle Art Gallery began its mission in 2005; a year that also introduced Art Conspiracy and The Lollipop Shoppe. There must have been something in the air that year as these three preeminent showcases have all evolved into forces with which to be reckoned. From the very beginning, Kettle has maintained two overall objectives: to offer local creatives a place to exhibit; and to rejuvenate the artistic roots of the Deep Ellum neighborhood. Throughout the years, Kettle has hosted over 140 exhibitions, in various media, featuring only North Texas artists. This averages out to one show every three weeks, with over $200,000.00 going directly into the pockets of local artists.
Join us during “Holiday Presence 10″ as Kettle enters their tenth year of celebrating the amazing local artists who make our art scene one of the most vibrant in the country!
