The summer is coming to an end, marking a beginning for the art season , which typically flourishes Fall through Spring. Of course, Kettle Art Gallery isn't afraid of a little heat. The Deep Ellum space keeps artists on the walls year round and this upcoming exhibition might be titled Artpocalypse, but it's hardly the end of anything. The work in this four man show includes strong artistic voices thoughtful social commentary and a great deal of humor. Ranging from Johnny Hawkins' graphic design to Richard L. Ross' metanarrative series (whatever that means!), this display promises explosions of variety and a cast of colorful characters. See the work at the free opening reception from 7-10 p.m. Thursday at Kettle Art (2650-B Main St.) or during gallery hours through September 6. More information at kettleartgallery.com.
