SAVAGES 2016 is a high-end pop-up art exhibition featuring some of Dallas' amazing talent pool of painters, sculptors, photographers and more.

FRANK CAMPAGNA has been a working artist in the Dallas area since 1979. Having cut his teeth via the music and nightclub industries, Campagna provided countless artwork for legendary live music venues including the Agora Ballroom, Bronco Bowl, Gypsy Tea Room and currently for House of Blues, also creating on-demand works for acts such as the Rolling Stones, Guns & Roses, The Eagles and U-2.
Considered the ‘Godfather of Deep Ellum’, Campagna has been instrumental in the revitalization of the historic neighborhood, beginning with hosting musical acts at Studio D, his visual art space, in the early 1980’s, to spearheading various public art projects including the Good Latimer tunnel murals known as Tunnelvisions. In the early 2000’s, Campagna played a key role in negotiating the replacement of the tunnels, resulting in the ‘new gateway’ to the neighborhood.
In 2005, Campagna founded Kettle Art Gallery to m mentor and promote emerging and mid-career North Texas artists. Over the years, the gallery has received numerous awards and recognitions, including USA Today’s 10 Best Art Galleries in Dallas, the Dallas Observer Readers’ Choice for Best Art Gallery and the 2014/2015 DFW Art Award for Best Art gallery. In 2014, Campagna was named one of “The Dallas 40”, a list recognizing Dallas citizens who have made a remarkable impact on the city, in celebration of D Magazine’s 40th anniversary.
