Big D Reads is a community service project designed to immerse Dallas in a shared reading experience, with a specific focus on ninth-grade Dallas ISD students. The program is under way now and will culminate with a citywide initiative throughout the entire month of April.
Big D Reads will conduct dozens of special events centered on one book, including an opening event, a closing event, poetry slams, educational events/speakers, DISD enrichment programs, movie screenings, a festival at Klyde Warren Park, and as many other community interactions as budget allows. At the same time, 17,000 books will be distributed to DISD ninth-graders, as well as to DART riders, visitors in hospital waiting rooms, and all branches of the Dallas Public Library.

Fractal Logic 2

Texas native sculptor, long-time Dallas resident, and prodigal son George Fowler has returned from New York City after matriculating at the New York Academy of Art. His first curatorial endeavor since returning is Kettle Art’s “Fractal Logic 2.” The event features 25 local Texas artists including painters, photographers, and sculptors.

Each artist will create a large mural comprised of at least one dozen smaller canvases, boards, etc. hung edge-to-edge, that when viewed from afar, form one cohesive piece. Each of these individual pieces, numbering over 1,000 works in all, will stand alone as solo pieces. Most are available at under $500.

Participating artists include: Ray Albarez, Brad Albright, Cabe Booth, Chetley Cade, Dan Colcer, Tom Currie, IZK, Daniel Driensky, Hatziel Flores, George Fowler, Jenna Fredde, Kevin Gilmore, Joe Hardy, Scott Horn, Robert Irby, Nick Glenn, Theresa Mangum, Dusty Morre, Jennifer Portz, Erin & Steve Reeves, Richard Ross, Ross von Rosenberg, Tyson Summers, and Minji Watrous.

For The Love Of Kettle 2015

Over one hundred and twenty, 9 x 12 works will be available for just $50.00 each, created by artists that exhibit & support this gallery.
