The Empire Strikes Back

We imagine that Judith Lea Perkins is especially proud of Empire of Belief, her current show at Kettle Art. Since she was one of the gallery's co-founders back in 2005, it probably feels like a homecoming. Perkins, who also showcased work in Kettle's successful 2007 exhibit Skulls Babes and Sparkly Guns, contrasts different styles, colors and textures on hand-carved block prints that result in unique print ensemble pieces that are thought-provoking but never too serious. Kind of like Kettle Art itself. The exhibit can be seen from 7 to 10 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays through February 14 at Kettle Art, 2714 Elm St. Admission is free. Call 214-573-7622 or visit
Thursdays-Sundays. Starts: Jan. 24. Continues through Feb. 14, 2009
