Kettle Art proudly presents artist Brad Albright in his first ever solo show, ‘Albright, Albright, Albright’. The artist opening reception will be held on Saturday, July 23, 2022, 6:00 to 9pm.

Brad Albright is Dallas-based artist and freelance illustrator best known for his modern approach to old school 3D poster art with red/blue glasses. His drawn artwork celebrates a shared love of pop-culture, music and gaming while presenting them in novel ways that utilize interactivity, dimensionality, and nostalgia to blur the line between fine art and accessible fun.

His work is infused with a traditional printmaking background, but applied through a modern illustrators toolkit; producing detailed line art with ballpoint pen, digital tablet, and a range of software, printers, laser and die-cutters.

Both designed and presented with paper glasses, Brad’s 3D work seeks to engage and invite viewers into immersive scenes… accessible and familiar on the surface, but revealing deeper layers of story, detail, and intrigue upon closer inspection.

Brad was born in Orlando before settling in North Texas. He earned his BFA in Combined Media at Cornell’s College of Architecture, Art, & Planning and later attended Hartford Art School’s low-residency MFA in Illustration program while simultaneously working full-time in Dallas as a graphic designer, licensed merch designer, art teacher, and Etsy shop owner.

Clients include Live Nation, Dallas Stars, Dallas Mavericks, Texas Rangers, Dickies Arena, comedian Marc Maron, Stern Pinball, Texas Pinball Festival, KXT 91.7, and Austin City Limits Music Festival.

Kettle Art has been Brad’s self-described home base since circa 2011, and he is proud to return after a brief hiatus (ahem, pandemic) for his first solo show with ‘Albright, Albright, Albright,’ sharing recent work and greatest hits, from 3D poster art to dimensionally layered woodcut illustrations and local event posters.

This show runs through Sunday September 4, 2022. Kettle Art Gallery is located at 2650-B Main St. Dallas, TX. 75226.

Summer Salon 2022 is an expansive exhibit featuring many of the finest artists you’ve come to know & love at Kettle. Works by artists such as Mahsa Moein, Richard Ross, Katrina Rasmussen, William ‘Bubba’ Flint, Justin Clumpner, Jeff ‘Skele’ Sheely, Francois Shogreen and many more.

This exhibition opens at noon on Saturday, May21st, and runs through Sunday June 5th.

“It’s Been Too Long” featuring the works of Jeff “Skele” Sheely opens Saturday, April 9th from 12:00pm to 9:00pm.

Artist Statement:

‘It’s Been Too Long’ is a reflection of my emotional state over the course of the past 6 months. It’s all about personal growth and failure, which is represented by recurring themes found throughout this body of work. For me the rainbows represent the good days, the bright days, the highs. The black clouds represent the darkness that looms. I often feel like I’m the main subject matter in the piece – I’m just painting myself over and over again, trying to reach that rainbow while sifting through the clouds.

I had many titles that I was working through, but I kept coming back to ‘It’s Been Too Long’ because it describes so many aspects of my life. It’s been too long since I’ve been back to Deep Ellum. It’s been too long since others have gotten to experience my work. It’s been too long since I’ve gotten to experience people experiencing it. It’s just been too long.

It’s fitting that ‘It’s Been Too Long,’ my first solo show, is opening at Kettle Art Gallery. Frank and Paula gave me the space – 9 years ago – to embrace life as an artist and I’m honored to be able to continue to work with them.

Kettle Art proudly exhibits Texas visual artists exclusively but this weekend we make an exception of sorts by hosting Japan born, Austin resident Kengo Hioki who hails from the Z area of Planet Peelander. If this sounds a bit confusing to you already, just wait… This artist is best known as Peelander Yellow or simply ‘Yellow’ who happens to be a bonafide punk-rock legend who fronts the Japanese punk band ‘Peelander Z’ as if that wasn’t enough he creates artwork as well, a lot of it… For example, murals on the walls of the Austin based Facebook and Google headquarters. Honestly, you can’t make this sh*t up and his identity shines as bright as the his colorful namesake.

Come see for yourself, Yellow and his artwork will be featured at Kettle this weekend only, February 26 & 27th and the artist will also paint live at the gallery on Saturday, February 26, at 6pm. Thanks for understanding.

Kettle Art proudly presents Justin Clumpner -Still, Painting in Isolation, featuring many new works created during his Covid-19 lockdown. This show will be on display in our backroom gallery beginning this Saturday, October 16 through Sunday November 21st. Please note our gallery hours are Saturdays and Sundays, noonish to 5pm and by appointment.

In this current body of work, Justin Clumpner presents drawings and paintings made in his time of isolation and self-reflection. He used his limited environment as source material for his paintings, including still lifes made from flowers grown on his patio (or discreetly clipped from neighbors’ bushes) then assembled in makeshift containers. These still lifes are often set in motion to reflect the fragile nature of our circumstances and the often tragic associations of flowers in people’s lives. Also included are portraits of his family with whom he shared his isolation and watercolors from a family road trip taken in the post-vaccine moment when it appeared the pandemic was nearing an end. There is also a space dedicated to the creative approaches Justin Clumpner employed while teaching visual art during a hybrid remote/in-person school year.
