You're invited to check in at Sweet Tooth Hotel, created by wife and husband duo Jencey and Cole Keeton, an immersive art venue that features emerging experiential artists. Visitors make their way through 5,000 sq. ft. of adventures in the form of art installations - exhibits have included everything from large-scale new media productions to retro-futurism to yarn. Yes, yarn. It’s unexpected, imaginative, impressive.
The current exhibit, Rewind showcases one of our most incredible lineups of local and national artists to-date. Open in a new location, nestled in the heart of Watters Creek at Montgomery Farms in Allen, TX, Rewind showcases ten art installations created by twelve local and national artists. For those curious about the title, Rewind is defined as “Something that rewinds or is rewound. A function of an electronic device that reverses a recording to a previous portion.” Why did we chose this title? Well (drumroll), at the heart of the exhibit will sit a full blown vintage video store full of VHS tapes, with a few hidden spaces for guests to discover!
Rewind features a curation of artists, from painters to fiber artists, with purposefully different backgrounds and voices. Artists include Multidisciplinary Artist Andy Arkley (Seattle, WA), Fiber Artist and Graphic Designer Hannah Busekrus (Austin, TX), Fiber Artist and Illustrator Niki Dionne (Dallas, TX), Painter, Illustrator and Graffiti Artist Hatziel Flores (Dallas, TX), Fiber Artist and Muralist Sam Lao (Dallas, TX), Experience Producer Madison Mask (Dallas, TX), Multidisciplinary Artist MOM (Dallas, TX), Twinkie Chan (San Francisco, CA) Jackie Lawrence (Denton, TX), Bobcat & Birdie (McAllen, TX), Joanna Lin - Soft Surprise (Dallas, TX), Dallas Yarn Bombers, London Kaye (Los Angeles, CA) and Ray Albarez (Dallas, TX). Each artist has been given a dedicated space to create their own unique art installation. For fans of previous Sweet Tooth Hotel exhibits, we're rebooting a few of our favorite installations.
