Open Call

We are finally in a position to annouce a new call for artists. There are several large scale mural projects in the works.

Not one, nor two, but three projects will be announced. Please bring your portfolio and / or examples of your work for consideration. All projects will be paying gigs w/ begining and ending deadlines. Previous large scale experience is prefered but not manditory and please do not inquire for details prior to this date. thanks !

Summer Camp
Opening Saturday 7 / 31 
This upcoming show reflects directly to those miserable adventures many of us had to endure smack dab in the middle of our time out of school, way back when.  On a more positive note it also focuses in on the type of creative arts & crafts we'd knock out while at camp. Imagine real artists like you see regularly at Kettle working w/ materials such as popsicle sticks, macaroni, glittler etc... You get the idea, More details coming soon.
Kettle Art hours of operation are Thursday - Saturday, 7:00 - 10:00PM

As you can see we're still on the ball, playing it hard and ready to rock. More to be revealed as time continues on and we all pull together to make it happen.
Thank you all for your contuinued love and support.
