kettle_artcon_select_2016

In November 2015, Kettle Art was offered the opportunity to curate an exhibit to spotlight artists of Art Con 11 who caught our eye. The tricky part was selecting artists who had never before exhibited at our gallery. This exhibit is the result of that sneak peek of talent. This show runs through Saturday, January 30th.

Artists include:

Gina Benson
Sully Ridout
Jocelyn Garcia
Anne Marie Talon
Andrea Davis
Sierra Sintic

and more will be announced in the near future!

OUR GOAL: Raise $5000 to purchase two surgery tables and a wet prep table.

Ultimately, the sale of each small work will help bring new surgery tables and a wet prep table to our Spay / Neuter clinic and aid our mission to provide affordable Spay / Neuter and eliminate pet overpopulation in North Texas.

Each art work is no larger than 10 x 10 x 10 inches and will be sold at $100 to $300 each. The works include painting, photography and sculpture, exhibiting a dynamic range of interests, genres, materials and methods.

Can’t make the event? Please donate via our website. Any amount will help!

Featured artist, George Fowler, will create limited edition contour wire pet portraits on location for purchase Thursday night, January 7 from 7pm to 10pm.

Operation Kindness has also generously donated works from their last art exhibition. These works are beautiful and affordable at $15 to $40. 100% of the proceeds go to Spay Neuter Network.
