In response to the overwhelming kindness and dedication of our artists, Kettle Art does a once of year ‘payback’ of sorts to those who support us with this show. At ‘For the Love of Artists’ 100 percent of sales go entirely to the artists.
This show is open only to artists who participated in the ‘Love of Kettle’ show. Each artist can show whatever they like and ask whatever price they want at this exhibit. Come show some Love for those who have shown Love!
“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!
Up next: in response to the artists’ generosity, all those in this show are invited to participate in our next exhibit ‘For the Love of Artists’, opening the following Saturday, February 15. During its two week run, the gallery commission will be waived. 100% of all sales will go directly to the artists.

Due to the icy, slick conditions created around Dallas/Fort Worth late last week, Kettle Art Gallery felt it necessary to postpone the official opening of Holiday Presence IX.
The staff felt that it was better for everyone to arrive safely to celebrate the holiday, than risk the potential of accident & injury trying to make it out for the show.
The wait will be worth it as your favorite local artists will be on hand Thursday night to welcome one-and-all & officially kick-off Holiday Presence IX. So, join us Thursday night for what promises to be a jolly fun time for all!
Till then, stay safe and warm!

Kettle Art recently announced a partnership with the Sixth Floor Museum to display and sell the artwork of local Dallas artists.
Here are a couple links that detail this partnership:
Thank you all!
Featured artists for Phoenix include:
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.
