Kettle Art proudly presents [krip-tik], a two-man show featuring recent works by Jeff Skele and Ruben Ramirez. This show opens Thursday, July 28, 7:00 – 10:00PM, and runs through Saturday, August 13.

Skele and Ramirez have shown their works around the DFW area for several years in numerous group exhibitions, including at Kettle, yet neither have had a well-focused spotlight exhibit until now. Both artists cite works by Jean Michel Basquiat as inspiration in their formative years. Now, they are ready to show us their own, personal brands of ‘Street Expressionism’. Needless to say, both artists are psyched for this show, so let’s allow them a few words…

Jeff Skele

What do the creatures say? Who are these monsters? Or are they monsters at all? Are they simply the realization of the human condition: suffering and greed; beings transformed by the doldrums of work, work, work; a pile of bones with money burning in its eyes; a skeleton dancing in ecstacy, love, and light? My paintings are more than what you catch at first glance. All around the world, collectors continue to stare, finding more truth, more reminders and more revelation – Can you see it? Can you feel it?

Ruben Ramirez

This series of paintings is comprised of abstract and semi-realistic styles reflecting a sense of control and chaos. With the combined use of brushes, sticks, and squeeze bottles, paint is applied on canvas, boards, and found objects, taking visual influences from nature, society, and primarily the black orchid, a symbol for power and absolute authority. Each piece explores the struggle and frustration of ‘getting it together’ or ‘calming down’ while letting go.

Kettle_Savages

Kettle Art & Tres Reyes Fine Art are proud to announce an encore exhibition of the celebrated Savages show with Savages (a slight return).

In response to all participating artists and the work that went into producing the original two day pop-up exhibit ‘Savages’ we are proud to allow this exhibit a bit more life. The attendance was phenomenal and the demand seemed much greater than originally anticipated so why not?

Participating artists include Frank Campagna, George Fowler, Frankie Garcia III, Mikki Mallow, Michael Ledoux, Hal Samples, Bob Poe, Steve Hamilton, Cathey Miller, Richard Ross, Judith Lea Perkins, Steve & Erin Reeves, Mark Nelson, Clint Scism, Hatziel Flores, Ruben Ramirez, Manny Rodriguez, Justin Clumpner, Fransisco Javier, George Wallace III, Andrew Williams and Daniel Yanez.

This show opens on June 9th 2016 and runs through July 16.

KingsOfOblivionKettle Art proudly presents ‘Kings of Oblivion’ an exhibit featuring the works of three, distinct individuals who all work with paper. This show opens on Thursday May 5, 2016 and runs through Saturday, May 21.

Arts educator Justin Clumpner incorporates your daily newspaper and occasional advertisements within his painted works. Arts educator, Walter Land cuts paper, applies, dissects, and utilizes negative space to create his works. Artist & frame shop operator George Wallace III constructs large format, complex, retro-zine collage works.

In other words, comparing the medium of ‘working with paper’ is where the works of these artists compliment one another, yet a creative platform for each to stand on their own.

FractalLogic3_2016

Kettle Art Gallery presents ‘Fractal Logic 3’, the third installation of the widely-acclaimed series curated by renowned artist George Fowler. The exhibition features twenty-one prominent, North Texas painters, photographers, and sculptors.

Each artist has created a large, unique mural comprised of a minimum of one-dozen smaller pieces that, when viewed from afar, form one cohesive unit. Numbering over one-thousand pieces in total, the individual components in this exhibition will stand alone or collectively as a whole within each mural. Most pieces are available at under $500.

Due to the popularity of this exhibition, it is strongly recommended that patrons arrive early for the best selection.

Participating artists include: Ray Albarez, Brad Albright, Todd Bot, Chetley Cade, Tom Currie, IZK, George Fowler, Allison Gillies, Jenny Heissenhuber, Steven Hamilton, Robert Irby, Nick Glenn, Paxton Maroney, George Mendez, Christian Millet, Dusty Moore, Erin & Steve Reeves, Clint Scism, Francois Shogreen, George Wallace III, and Minji Watrous.

Venus Art, Elizabeth Dryden, Jenny Heissenhuber, Jose May, Eric Mancini, Eliana Miranda, Lock Murrell, Alfredo Pena, Francois Shogreen, Jeff Skeely, AnneMarie Talon and Emily Yandell.

ForTheLoveOfArtists_2016

Hot on the heals of our ‘For Love of Kettle’ annual fundraiser, this show ‘For the Love of Artists’ features the same artists who have just shown their love & support for this gallery.

The idea for this show was inspired by the many artists who donate towards various causes, while slaving away, broke as hell, struggling to earn a living. This exhibit serves as a unique ‘Thank You’ for helping us out and 100% of the proceeds of sales during this exhibit go directly to those artists!

Show these heroes some Love, opening Thursday, February 11 – Saturday February, 20, 2016

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
