As with any new venture, there are start-up costs. Kettle Art Gallery is no exception.

The new space at 2650-B Main Street is about three times bigger than the old Kettle location, but it needs a lot of work to make sure it is ready when we open to the public on September 19th.

During the next seven weeks, we will be hard at work, preparing the gallery while preserving the historic architecture and features of the building.

Line items we need to raise funds for:

  • Lumber, hardware, sheetrock, tape and bedding, texture for new art walls
  • paint for existing walls and new art walls
  • electrical wiring upgrades
  • lighting upgrades
  • audio installation
  • exterior signage

In order to meet this need, Kettle Art Gallery is asking for a little neighborly help to raise the funds necessary to make the new Kettle a beautiful place for people to see local art.

A CrowdTilt campaign has been started to help raise those funds:

Please think about opening up your wallet to support “the little gallery that could”.

Thank you for your continued support! We look forward to seeing you at the opening of “Phoenix” on September 19th at the new space at 2650-B Main Street in Deep Ellum.



Back in May of this year it was announced that Kettle Art Gallery at 2714 Elm Street in Deep Ellum would be closing its doors.

Of course, ever the showman, Frank Campagna made the following statement as if he already knew the future:

“This can be seen as the end of an era but may also be viewed as a new beginning. News of our relocation will come once the dust has settled. Please rest assured this is a giant step forward. Look for our return on September 19th.”

It appears as if the “Phoenix” will rise on September 19th. A giant step forward, indeed.

Kettle Art Gallery has found it’s new home in Deep Ellum only a block over from the “Classic Kettle” location. The space, located at 2650-B Main Street, is about three times bigger than the old space. This will allow Kettle Art Gallery to use it’s space in more ways to benefit the surrounding community.

Please join us on September 19th at the new Kettle Art Gallery location to witness a Phoenix rising from the ashes.
