This Thursday, October 16, 2014 Kettle Art proudly presents extremes in photography with two openings in one night!
Justin Terveen will unveil ‘New Works’ in Gallery A, featuring recent ‘Dallas Heavy’ photographs and more.
Few artists have captured the beauty of a cityscape, or the hearts of adoring fans, quite like photographer Justin Terveen has done in Dallas.
Terveen’s breathtaking images of the skyline are found within countless blogs and publications across the internet, and in numerous private and corporate collections. When USA Today’s readers voted Dallas as Readers’ Choice for 2014 Best International Skyline, it was due in large part to Terveen’s iconic images.
Richard Andrew Sharum‘s ‘In the Heart’ featuring street photography from around the world, opens in Gallery B.
Richard Andrew Sharum debuts his compelling series documenting the often obscure landscape of urban spaces around the world and the inhabitants of these areas. Sharum’s images depict the contrast between flesh and architecture, the fragility of life juxtaposed with formidable concrete structures, and the light that both illuminates and deepens the shadows between them.
In recognition of Sharum’s work on the series abroad, he was selected among international applicants for the Magnum Photos (Paris) Masterclass with Jonas Bendiksen during HOST at FOTOGRAFIA EUROPEA 2014 in Reggio Emilia, Italy, and for the Magnum Photos (New York) Masterclass with Moises Saman and Abbas in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Both resulted in public exhibitions of his work in each respective city.
In Summer of 2014, Sharum launched “Observe Dallas”, a public installation project aimed at encouraging observers of anonymously placed photographs within the Downtown area to interact with their surroundings in unique ways.

Please join us for this rare opportunity to meet the photographers and view their new works at the opening reception on Thursday, October 16, 7-10:00pm, at Kettle Art Gallery, 2650-B Main St., Dallas. The exhibit runs through Saturday, November 1.
Kettle Art proudly presents Shot in Dallas, an exhibit of nine area media photographers. You’ve seen their works in Time, Texas Monthly, Rolling Stone, Dallas Morning News, Dallas Observer, Pegasus News, and many other media sources, but this show offers insight to what the folks behind the camera actually like to capture on their own. The exhibit features personal works of interest by Justin Clemons, Guy Reynolds, Alexandra Olivia, Jason Janik, Justin Terveen, Catherine Downes, Rex Curry, Robert Hart, and Richard Sharum.
The exhibit opens Thursday, November 7, 7:00 – 10:00pm in Gallery B of the new Kettle Art, located at 2650-B Main Street in Deep Ellum. This show will run concurrently with “That 60’s Show” through Saturday, November 29.
Please join us for the first exhibition ‘Phoenix’ in our new location, at 2650-B Main St in Deep Ellum. As declared back in April, when time was running low at our previous home, this would be the day we re-open. Thanks to the massive amount of people who believed in both our mission and target date, this proclamation is about to become true.
Since Kettle Art opened in 2005 we’ve given countless emerging and established North Texas artists a place to express themselves and show their works without inhibiti…on or restriction. We look forward to continuing this tradition at our new home as well.
Thank you all!

This can be seen as the end of an era but should be considered a new beginning. News of our new location will come in August in regards to our re-opening in September. Please rest assured this is a giant step forward.
Runs through – Saturday, April 13
Kettle Art is located at 2714 Elm, Deep Ellum Texas, 75226
Hours: 7:00 – 10:00 p.m. Thursday – Saturday
Opening reception for this exhibit
Saturday 2/ 16, 7:00 – 10:00pm
… Unlike the Kettle fundraiser there is no standard sizing or pricing. Artists simply bring in a piece of their work, and name their price. The idea for this show was inspired by the many institutions and causes that ask for donations but rarely, if ever, give back to participating artists. Sometimes it seems those with the least tend to give the most :/
At any rate, here’s a chance to get original art and show some love & support to those who are kind enough to share. Thank You!
Incredible artists / sweet show / silent auction style. Starting 7:00 pm on Thursday, wrapping 10:00pm on Saturday. All works start at just $45.00. All as part of 45 Fest 2012 at Kettle Art / Club Dada.
Live Fast / Die Slow is a visual extension of 45 Fest 2012. The artwork exhibited will be creations designed as potential cover art for the upcoming ‘Spector 45’ anthology of the same name. The title of this exhibit / CD is taken from a tattoo formerly on the chest of Frankie 45 Campagna.

45 Fest is an music and art event by Deep Ellum’s 45 Fund to promote mental health for Artists and Musicians. Founded in 2011, 45 Fund was inspired by the suicides of Frankie Campagna and Adam Carter, both from the Dallas based band Spector 45.
45 Fund is a project of the Deep Ellum Community Association
Background: Spector 45 was a Dallas based greaser punk band that captured the pure energy of 50’s Rock n Roll and original 70’s Punk Rock, and kicked it out for today’s audience… In less than 8 years they played over 500 shows and were always happy to perform beyond their North Texas roots. The band formed in 2003 while in high school, recorded five releases and were two time winners of the coveted Dallas Observer Music Awards for ‘best punk band’. These efforts came to a screeching halt January 1, 2011 with the suicide of founder / front man Frankie followed 88 days later by bassist Adam Carter.
Brad Albright, Catheryn Colcer, Cheryl Baker, Clint Scism, Corey Godfrey, Danny Rose, Elisa Guardiola, Erica Felicella, Isaac Davies, Jenice Johnson, James Carter, Justin Clumpner, Mark Kimberlin, Raymond Butler, Richard Ross, Ryan Thies, Tyson Summers, Valarie Synck, Amber Campagna and more!
