Kettle Art proudly presents ‘Myth America’, a four man show featuring new works by Clint Scism, Justin Clumpner, Johnny Hawkins and special guest Mark S. Nelson. This show explores mythology & legend as interpreted by four American artists, with diverse livelihoods ranging from programmer to teacher, from graphic designer to visual artist.

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.
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” is perhaps the most highly anticipated event of our year. This one night only, annual fundraiser keeps Kettle Art Gallery operating in the black, allowing us 51 weeks a year of eclectic, North Texas based, cultural programming. 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. Please get here early and grab a place in line, as the doors open at 7:00PM sharp.
For a brief rundown on how this event goes down here is a blog post / review done last year by a gentleman named Bill Chance.http://billchance.org/2014/02/09/the-weird-and-wicked-world-of-the-singing-cowboy/
In November 2014, Kettle Art was asked to preview the art work of Art Con 10 and offered the opportunity to curate a spotlight of artists who have never shown at the gallery before. This exhibit is the result of that sneak peek of talent.

Kettle Art Gallery began its mission in 2005; a year that also introduced Art Conspiracy and The Lollipop Shoppe. There must have been something in the air that year as these three preeminent showcases have all evolved into forces with which to be reckoned. From the very beginning, Kettle has maintained two overall objectives: to offer local creatives a place to exhibit; and to rejuvenate the artistic roots of the Deep Ellum neighborhood. Throughout the years, Kettle has hosted over 140 exhibitions, in various media, featuring only North Texas artists. This averages out to one show every three weeks, with over $200,000.00 going directly into the pockets of local artists.
Join us during “Holiday Presence 10” as Kettle enters their tenth year of celebrating the amazing local artists who make our art scene one of the most vibrant in the country!
