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!

Kettle Art Gallery proudly presents ‘Over the Line’, an exhibition featuring new works by Dan Colcer, Clint Scism, Larry Carey, and Raymond Butler.
This exhibit examines the diverse, yet unifying, use of line in each of the four artists’ works. From Colcers’ implementation of numerous characters within a larger image, to Scism’s multi-layered, three-dimensional works on glass, to Carey’s 1960s influenced, mandala-esque pieces, to Butler’s re-appropriation of international currency etchings, each artist interprets the simplicity of line with a unique vision.
‘Over the Line’ opens Thursday, July, 10th, 7:00 – 10:00pm and runs through Saturday, August 2nd.

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!
