Come to the Kettle...

Come to the Kettle Art Gallery in Deep Ellum Friday night (from 7pm to 10pm), November 6, 2009. A reception for a juried show will be taking place, and I was one of the jury members. It was exciting, getting a chance to pick the final artwork from all the talented artists that submitted. We chose about 55 pieces to show from a pool of about 400. It was hard work!

This is a short press release regarding the event:
