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.

Holiday Presence 10

On Thursday, December 4th from 7:00pm to 10:00pm, Kettle Art Gallery proudly presents their tenth annual holiday gift show “Holiday Presence 10” featuring small works and unique, artisan-crafted gifts made exclusively by local artists. Works by Judith Lea Perkins, Brad Albright, Monica Moody, Johnny Hawkins, Emily Hawkins, Clint Scism, Megan Petasky, Clay Stinnett, Sarah Zamora, Michael Francis, Jody Pham, Cabe Booth, Corey Godfrey, George Wallace III, Michelle Marie, Richard Sharum, Cheryl Baker, Justin Clumpner, Jennifer Lafleur, Brian Crawford, Darlene Schaper, Larry Carrey, Patricia Rodriguez, Nick Glenn, and more will be featured. Most pieces will be available for under $100.00.

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!

Artpocalypse

 

Kettle Art proudly presents ‘Artpocalypse’ a four man show featuring works by Richard Ross, Clay Stinnett, Mattson Plummer, and Johnny Hawkins, opening Thursday, August 21, 2014, 7:00 – 10:00PM.

From Ross’s whimsical, mythology-based social commentary, to Plummer’s graffiti-inspired street art characters, to Stinnett’s humorous pop imagery with a Texas twist, to Hawkins’ depictions of man vs. animal, all four artists are linked through the use of impassioned, thought-provoking symbolism, and are delighted to cross-pollinate their diverse and devoted fan-bases in this dynamic exhibit.

Richard L. Ross formed his artistic voice during the chaos of the early Dallas punk scene. His metanarrative series “The Road to the Store” is based on the Kantian concept that beliefs derive from the question “What can I hope?”, with a symbolic cast of characters portraying the disorder and uncertainty experienced along life’s journey.

Clay Stinnett’s work explores relationships between humorous motifs, pop imagery, and iconography, representing a personal definition of beauty and truth as the synthesis of story-telling, shocking humor, and horror within a post-modern forum.

Mattson Plummer’s latest series focuses on engaging his Dallas and Austin audiences in a scavenger hunt for his works via Instagram. Plummer’s minimal, small-scale works, created in large numbers, comprise an installation of seemingly similar, yet unique, pieces of a whole.

Johnny Hawkins is a graphic designer with a focus on digital design theory that trickles its way into his paintings. Lately, he has been exploring the conflicting interests of animals and men. ARTPOCALYPSE will be his first gallery show as a featured artist.
