Kettle Art proudly presents Shot in Dallas, an exhibit of nine area media photographers. You’ve seen their works in Time, Texas Monthly, Rolling Stone, Dallas Morning News, Dallas Observer, Pegasus News, and many other media sources, but this show offers insight to what the folks behind the camera actually like to capture on their own. The exhibit features personal works of interest by Justin Clemons, Guy Reynolds, Alexandra Olivia, Jason Janik, Justin Terveen, Catherine Downes, Rex Curry, Robert Hart, and Richard Sharum.
The exhibit opens Thursday, November 7, 7:00 – 10:00pm in Gallery B of the new Kettle Art, located at 2650-B Main Street in Deep Ellum. This show will run concurrently with “That 60′s Show” through Saturday, November 29.
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:
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.
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.

About the Artist:
Derek Rankins pays homage to his roots in rural Southeastern Kansas. In 2004 he worked as a lab technician for the last remaining Kodachrome processor until which he moved to Texas to pursue a photography career. In 2006, Rankins received his Bachelors in Photography from Texas A&M University-Commerce and began developing his personal work over the next five years. Derek is now pursuing his Master of Fine Arts degree in Photography at the University of North Texas in Denton with an expected graduation date of May 2013.
About the Work:
“The Part and The Whole” is a visual representation of how I interpret my surroundings and how I interact with these parts of culture. It is a comprehensive collection of miscellanea and explores the possible narratives that take place. As I have attempted to visualize the sum of its parts, I have come to see that there is no whole, that the parts are infinitely divisible.
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!
