The Instigators: Celebrating 10 Years of Kettle Art

Please join us on Thursday, November 5th, 7:00 – 10:00pm for the opening reception and celebration of our support of local culture over the past ten years.

Call them what you will: rabble rousers, provocateurs, radicals, or champions. The art world has always needed them, and Dallas is no exception. In November of 2005, a small group of unrepresented artists joined forces to open Kettle’s doors, while simultaneously launching careers that have helped to illuminate the rich and vast array of talent our city has to offer. Co-founder Kirk Hopper served as art consultant and financial adviser before establishing Kirk Hopper Fine Art in 2008, also located in DeepEllum.

Conceived by artist and muralist Frank Campagna as a two-pronged concept, the gallery’s mission was to 1) offer opportunities for regional artists and patrons alike to experience art in a casual and supportive atmosphere, and 2) return the Deep Ellum neighborhood back to its artistic roots.

With this goal in mind, Kettle has proudly collaborated with organizations and arts groups across the North Texas region such as the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, American Society of Media Photographers Dallas, Art Conspiracy, Art Hash, ArtPlace America, Cykochik, D Magazine’s Big D Reads, Dallas Art Dealers Association, Dallas Association of Young Lawyers, Dallas Observer, Dallas Video Festival, Deep Ellum Arts Festival, Deep Ellum Community Association, Deep Ellum Wine Walk, END Design, Folksie/Make Shop & Studio, Instant Film Society, Lollipop Shoppe, Lone Star Wind Orchestra, Naked Girls Reading, Observe Dallas, Shag Carpet, The Sixth Floor Museum, The Urban Fabric, TunnelVisions, Wordspace Dallas, and the 45 Suicide Prevention Fund, as well as hosting performances by numerous musical acts, including the Deathray Davies, Telegraph Canyon, Unconscious Collective, Whiskey Folk Ramblers, Yells at Eels, and many more.

Every now and then a show comes along that is incredible enough to warrant a closing party. Prism is one of those shows. Featuring nearly 400 works of art and hung as a massive visual spectrum, this show is a must see for anyone who loves any and every color.

In honor of Halloween, Deep Ellums favorite holiday, we will also be hosting a party for those who like to get dressed up and / or give their costume for the weekend a trial run. Prizes will be given for those who out stun the others in several categories.

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.

Fractal Logic 2

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.
