Kettle Art proudly host the third annual Summer Session: Creative Works of DFW’s Teaching Artists curated by Justin Clumpner.

As William Butler Yeats said, “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” Teaching artists balance between educating and producing. They constantly stoke their own creative flames while igniting the passion for art in their students. By working to enrich the lives of our children while maintaining their own professional practice, they strengthen our community and deepen their understanding of their own craft. This exhibition highlights the work of some of the finest artist educators working in primary and secondary schools here in Dallas-Fort Worth. Please join us in celebrating their work and their dedication to our community.

Opening reception will be Thursday, June 27th, 2019, 6:00 – 9:00pm at Kettle Art.

Kettle Art is proud to present ‘Chimera’ featuring recent works by Erin Curry, Katrina Rasmussen, Paxton Maroney and introducing Janae Corrado. The title for this show was chosen by the artists, to reflect their vision of what they collectively hope to convey in this exhibit.

Chimera noun
1. (in Greek mythology) a fire-breathing female monster with a lion’s head, a goat’s body, and a serpent’s tail.
2. a thing that is hoped or wished for but in fact is illusory or impossible to achieve.
“the economic sovereignty you claim to defend is a chimera”
synonyms: illusion, fantasy, delusion, dream, fancy, figment of the imagination, will-o’-the-wisp, phantom, mirage; ignis fatuus
“the economic sovereignty she claims to defend is a chimera”

The four ladies of Chimera certainly fill the bill on this definition. Each artists will lure you into their personal fantasy world with surreal talent and ability. Do yourself a favor, take a break from reality and drop by for this show.

Deep Leap, a group show at Kettle Arts, presents the recent work of nine artists who recently completed the Advanced Studio Seminar at The O’Keefe Studio Center. This exhibition was curated by artist Michael O’Keefe, the owner of and primary instructor at The O’Keefe Studio Center, a teaching studio dedicated to art education and professional development opportunities for artists of all levels.

The Advanced Studio Seminar is a program intended to help artists dive deeper into an effective studio practice, develop a stronger visual language and a more unique voice.

Each artist will show various works, demonstrating a personal style and inquiry. The show will include paintings, drawings, encaustics, collage, sculptures and assemblage, and will explore a range of work, ranging from representational figuration to pure abstraction, from classical design to zany illustration. Come jump into the interesting work of these nine artists: Lynn Baskind, Debbie Burch, Marc Dominus, Brian Ellard, Trey Hoffmann, Mahsa Moein, Marianne Phelps, Jeannie Neal, and Mary Elizabeth Schleier.

Opening reception is Thursday, May 9th, from 6 – 9pm.

The show will run through Sunday, May 19th.

Definition of Immaculate courtesy of Merriam-Webster dictionary

1 : having no stain or blemish : pure an immaculate heart
2 : having or containing no flaw or error an immaculate record of service in immaculate detail
3 : spotlessly clean.

Yes, this description pretty well sums up the greatness of this exhibition. Although the subject matter portrayed within the individual works of each artists may differentiate, this is the aspect that holds this show together. From the abstract pieces painted by Jamie and Lena, bridged by the photographic abstractions by Amber, to the much more realistic interpretations in paint by Brandon and Michelle, each of these artists bring outstanding purity to their pieces. Come see for yourself and feel free to engage with these five different, but unified by excellence, artists only at Kettle Art, 2650-B Main St. Deep Ellum TX.

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 and struggling to get some sort of ‘break’. 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 reception Saturday, February 9th from 7:00 – 10:00pm.

This show runs through Sunday, February 17th.

Kettle Art proudly presents Art Con Select 2019, opening Saturday, January 19, 6:00-9:00pm.

This exhibition is one of our annual favorites, marking the fifth year of collaboration on this exhibit with our long-time friends at Art Conspiracy. The preliminary guidelines for this exhibit are: each artist is chosen from one-hundred-fifty artists based on a single piece created for the much-lauded, annual Art Conspiracy fund-raiser the previous Fall; and every artist chosen may not have ever exhibited previously at Kettle Art.

In keeping with these guidelines, this exhibit adheres to the idealism that Kettle was based on, to welcome and promote emerging and mid-career North Texas artists. We are excited to include this new roster of artists, and look forward to kicking off the new year with them. Brent Wood, Cortney Pace, Ember Miller, Emma Claire Chumley, Erica Hulbert, George Lacy, Guy A. Rogers III, Jason Ray Maldonado, James Robert Campbell III, Kaley McGill, Robert McWilliams, and Will Heron.
