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.
Runs through – Saturday, April 13
Kettle Art is located at 2714 Elm, Deep Ellum Texas, 75226
Hours: 7:00 – 10:00 p.m. Thursday – Saturday
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!
Incredible artists / sweet show / silent auction style. Starting 7:00 pm on Thursday, wrapping 10:00pm on Saturday. All works start at just $45.00. All as part of 45 Fest 2012 at Kettle Art / Club Dada.
Live Fast / Die Slow is a visual extension of 45 Fest 2012. The artwork exhibited will be creations designed as potential cover art for the upcoming ‘Spector 45′ anthology of the same name. The title of this exhibit / CD is taken from a tattoo formerly on the chest of Frankie 45 Campagna.

45 Fest is an music and art event by Deep Ellum’s 45 Fund to promote mental health for Artists and Musicians. Founded in 2011, 45 Fund was inspired by the suicides of Frankie Campagna and Adam Carter, both from the Dallas based band Spector 45.
45 Fund is a project of the Deep Ellum Community Association
Background: Spector 45 was a Dallas based greaser punk band that captured the pure energy of 50′s Rock n Roll and original 70′s Punk Rock, and kicked it out for today’s audience… In less than 8 years they played over 500 shows and were always happy to perform beyond their North Texas roots. The band formed in 2003 while in high school, recorded five releases and were two time winners of the coveted Dallas Observer Music Awards for ‘best punk band’. These efforts came to a screeching halt January 1, 2011 with the suicide of founder / front man Frankie followed 88 days later by bassist Adam Carter.
Brad Albright, Catheryn Colcer, Cheryl Baker, Clint Scism, Corey Godfrey, Danny Rose, Elisa Guardiola, Erica Felicella, Isaac Davies, Jenice Johnson, James Carter, Justin Clumpner, Mark Kimberlin, Raymond Butler, Richard Ross, Ryan Thies, Tyson Summers, Valarie Synck, Amber Campagna and more!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
DALLAS, TX, June 8, 2012 — Dallas/Fort Worth has become a hotbed for original art but there are fresh faces still hidden in the background or haven’t found their first chance to break onto the scene.
Husband and wife team Dan and Cathryn Colcer are two seasoned artists that intend to change that with their upcoming group show “Counter Culture” at Deep Ellum’s legendary Kettle Art Gallery in Dallas. The show opens at 7 p.m. June 14 and runs until June 23. The duo hopes that the relaxed atmosphere and open theme will draw a new crowd to the gallery.
“We just want to showcase people we thought deserved to be out there,” Cathryn said. “Sure there are lots more, but here’s where it starts — putting a few people together in a room and see what happens.”
The show will highlight personal works from eight artists — including a Romanian photographer — covering everything from book carving to quirky cartoon style art as well as paintings from the Colcers. Featured artists include: Ryan Thies, Richard Patterson, Anne Cubbage, Vladimir Bodeanu and Justin Teran.
“Counter Culture” coincides with East Dallas Gallery Day in Deep Ellum and Expo Park in Dallas. Kettle Art is a participant and will be open during the event, which is a unified effort by eight established galleries located in the two art-driven neighborhoods. For more information on Gallery Day, visit dallasgalleryday.com.
“We are trying to make a good mix of artists and techniques,” Dan said. “This is an experiment based on our will to diversify the art environment and present something new to the public.”
