Fred Gardner says that his original art form, CUTZ, is simply "fine art ensconced in wood," but members working alongside him at The Workshop don't think there is anything simple about what Fred creates.

This weekend, November 19 - 21, see Fred's art at the Bath House Cultural Center annual Art Mart. More than 45 local and regional artists will fill this special place near White Rock Lake with paintings, photographs, pottery, sculpture, fiber arts, jewelry, and more.

Not only will the event be fun, but it also gives art lovers an opportunity to do some holiday shopping while supporting incredible artists like Fred Gardner.

See details at https://bathhouse.dallasculture.org/artmart

Meet our Shop Manager, Kenneth Easley.

Kenneth started welding in high school and attended The Ocean Corporation to become a professional underwater welder. He also welded on land and later attended UT Tyler so he could pursue another passion - teaching. Kenneth taught welding and automotive technology in Dallas ISD for 31 years.

At The Workshop, Kenneth teaches classes, keeps the shop in order, helps people with their projects, and does most anything that needs to be done with a smile on his face. In his free time, he builds street rods and race cars, plus he really enjoys drag racing.

We are thankful for the expertise Kenneth shares and for his commitment to impacting the lives of others through what we’re doing at The Workshop.
