Grapefest is almost here!  If you wish to hang some of your artwork please contact Nick at  if you are looking for something to do and see this weekend, be sure to stop in at the new foundry where Nick C. Kirk is opening a bronze casting foundry (Molten Metals Foundry) at 701 S. Main Street, Suite 101, Grapevine which is in the middle of the 4 day Grapefest September 13th-16th Festival.  Molten Metals Foundry will be open to the public all day every day of this event as a meet and greet to the public.  He will be giving small demonstrations throughout some of the days on the process of sculpting and casting.  To make use of the new space, Nick will be selling his bronze sculptures as well as opening up his doors to artists to show and sell artwork on his walls through Art-Hunger.  The artwork will be hung salon style all the way up to the 16' ceilings.  So the artists don't have to physically be there during each day, there will be a small hanging fee and a small selling fee.  Each artist may submit up to 5 two dimensional works of art for display-(if a piece sells, the artist will be notified and be able to hang another in it's place)  Each piece under 24" at it's longest side will be a fee of 15.00, and each piece between 24"-36" will be a fee of 20.00.  If you wish to display sculpture, please contact us for pricing.(which varies on size and space availability)  All sales will go through Art-Hunger so the artists do not have to be present for a sell to occur.  Sales fees consist of 15% of the final purchase.(includes sales tax & credit card fees)  All sales will be paid to the artists on September 24th.(credit cards take several days to process payment)  If you have questions, please contact Art-Hunger at  Pieces must be dropped off to the foundry between September 9th -September 12th.  This is a great chance for exposure and sales.  This is a four day event with an estimated 230,000 - 250,000 of visitors!  Space is limited, this is on a first come first serve basis.
