Gratitude: These Local Artists Are Giving Thanks

Pamela and Dylan, Dowdy Studio We are so very thankful for all the great holiday foods we're about to pig out on, and also thankful that the menu won't be including cat sandwiches, because they're really tricky to prepare and would probably taste like fur balls.

Frank Campagna, Kettle Art At Kettle we are thankful for all the artists who continue to share their talent and latest efforts at the gallery and for all the collectors who add to their collection of excellent local art. After six years of being 'inclusive as opposed to exclusive' of talent in this region, we are also thankful for the newer galleries who have followed suit in exhibiting these artists, as we only have one small room and one calendar year to fill at a time. Culturally, Dallas is truly becoming a force to be reckoned with on a larger scale, thanks to all of the above.

Allison V. Smith I'm thankful for my family & friends, the supportive & creative community in Dallas and Texas light.
