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. Artists include but are not limited to; Brian Crawford, Cabe Booth, Catrina Oittnen, George Wallace III, Guy Reynolds, Cheryl Baker, Mike Moffatt, Mandy Paquette, Justin Clumpner, Jodi Von Rotten, Mattson Plummer, Roxanne Mather, Brad Albright, Corey Godfrey, Raymond Butler, Jennifer Gregory Portz, Nick Glenn, Miguel Aguilar, Danny Rose and many more.
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:
Thank you all!
Featured artists for Phoenix include:
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.

This can be seen as the end of an era but should be considered a new beginning. News of our new location will come in August in regards to our re-opening in September. Please rest assured this is a giant step forward.
Opening reception for this exhibit
Saturday 2/ 16, 7:00 – 10:00pm
… Unlike the Kettle fundraiser there is no standard sizing or pricing. Artists simply bring in a piece of their work, and name their price. The idea for this show was inspired by the many institutions and causes that ask for donations but rarely, if ever, give back to participating artists. Sometimes it seems those with the least tend to give the most :/
At any rate, here’s a chance to get original art and show some love & support to those who are kind enough to share. Thank You!
Kettle Art opened in November of 2005 with the intent of reviving a neighborhood in decline. In bringing the Deep Ellum area ‘back to it’s roots’ the gallery also offered countless Texas based artists a place to show. With an ‘inclusive as opposed to exclusive’ attitude, uncommon in most galleries at the time, the overall mission has been achieved.
Kettle Art, in it’s present location, will be closing in late spring. We see this as a great opportunity for expansion of ideas and creativity to benefit our community.
Our concluding schedule at 2714 Elm is as follows:
February 9, 2013 – For the Love of Kettle – One night Only!
Opens February 16 – For the Love of Artists – Feb. 23, 2013
Opens March 7 – Derek Rankins The Part & the Whole (Thesis Show) – Mar. 23
Opens March 28 – Justin Terveen – April 13
Opens April 18 – Past Present & Future (a gallery retrospect) – May 4.
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.
