“For the Love of Kettle” is the one night only, annual fundraiser that helps to keep our little gallery afloat. Thanks to Dallas’ amazing artistic community, we are very excited to be approaching Kettle’s 10th year of great art and great people. Please join us on this special evening as we kick off a year of innovative exhibits and special events.

This exhibit will include emerging and mid-career artists we have represented over the years, plus many artists new to Kettle. All works are priced at $50.00 each; however, in honor of the unfailing support of Deep Ellum 42, the first 42 pieces will be sold at $42. So, come early and stay to mingle!

For The Love Of Kettle 2012
For Immediate Release
Kettle Art nurtures up and coming artists in the North Texas area. The original idea was to be ‘inclusive as opposed to exclusive’ offering local talent a quality setting to exhibit their works. This concept has proven successful for over seven years now. We’ve hosted well over 250 exhibits and the number of artists who have graced our walls is well into the thousands. Visual Art groups such as Sour Grapes, ArtHash and Photopolis have unified their efforts at Kettle. Regional ‘Art Stars’ who have shown not only their work but steady love & support for this gallery include Cathey Miller, Sergio Garcia, Lisa Lindholm, Richard Ross, Erica Felicella, Tyson Summers, Judith Lea Perkins, Mark S. Nelson, George Fowler, Dan Colcer and Cabe Booth. These are just few names you may recognize as ‘the Little Gallery that Could’ continues it’s quest in breaking new talent in our fair city.

This effort does however come with a price. In taking on this artistic endeavor of keeping the doors open, our artists always get paid their fair share first, followed by essentials such as rent, electric and sales tax. Despite all staff personnel being voluntary, on the average one out of three exhibits make a profit. Which brings us to the Love of Kettle. This annual event is the one and only fundraiser we do to keep us in the black. All works are created on equally sized 9 x 12 inch boards, by those who care enough to keep this gallery / concept afloat. All works are also equally priced at just $50.00 apiece. These are all sold on a first come first serve basis, which creates quite a buying frenzy, not usually seen at an art gallery.

For the Love of Kettle happens annually on the Saturday prior to Valentines Day, this year on February 11th, 2012 from 7:00 – 10:00 PM. Expect to have the opportunity to own a piece not only by the aforementioned artists but also greats such as Clint Scism, Corey Godfrey, Robb Conover, Cheryl Baker, Brian Crawford, Cathryn Colcer, Brad Albright, Amber Campagna, Ryan Thies, Hatziel Flores, Dylan Hollingsworth, Michelle McLaughlin, George Wallace III, Frank Lopez and many, many more.

Thank you for your continued support and be sure to get there early,

Frank Campagna
