Kettle Art proudly host the third annual Summer Session: Creative Works of DFW’s Teaching Artists curated by Justin Clumpner.

As William Butler Yeats said, “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” Teaching artists balance between educating and producing. They constantly stoke their own creative flames while igniting the passion for art in their students. By working to enrich the lives of our children while maintaining their own professional practice, they strengthen our community and deepen their understanding of their own craft. This exhibition highlights the work of some of the finest artist educators working in primary and secondary schools here in Dallas-Fort Worth. Please join us in celebrating their work and their dedication to our community.

Opening reception will be Thursday, June 27th, 2019, 6:00 – 9:00pm at Kettle Art.

Kettle Art is proud to present ‘Chimera’ featuring recent works by Erin Curry, Katrina Rasmussen, Paxton Maroney and introducing Janae Corrado. The title for this show was chosen by the artists, to reflect their vision of what they collectively hope to convey in this exhibit.

Chimera noun
1. (in Greek mythology) a fire-breathing female monster with a lion’s head, a goat’s body, and a serpent’s tail.
2. a thing that is hoped or wished for but in fact is illusory or impossible to achieve.
“the economic sovereignty you claim to defend is a chimera”
synonyms: illusion, fantasy, delusion, dream, fancy, figment of the imagination, will-o’-the-wisp, phantom, mirage; ignis fatuus
“the economic sovereignty she claims to defend is a chimera”

The four ladies of Chimera certainly fill the bill on this definition. Each artists will lure you into their personal fantasy world with surreal talent and ability. Do yourself a favor, take a break from reality and drop by for this show.

Artists opening reception 6:00 – 9:00pm, Thursday, May 23, 2019
