Patterns of Passion

Kettle Art proudly presents “Patterns of Passion”, a three-woman exhibit exploring the rhythms, colors, and textures of emotion, featuring new works by Dallas-based artists Corey Godfrey, Aralyn McGregor, and Judith Lea Perkins. Please join us for the opening reception on Thursday, April 17, 7-10 p.m. The exhibit runs through Saturday, May 10.

Corey Godfrey earned her BFA at the University of North Texas in 2008, but has been creating art since she was old enough to teach her siblings how to color on the walls. She is inspired by the soft nature of female sensuality and accentuates that into her compositions by using craft materials, which are deeply rooted in female history. In her current series, she is emphasizing the beauty of patterns and allowing the yarn to take fluid turns and to control when to begin and when to end, much like the impressions found in her dreams.

Aralyn McGregor graduated from the University of North Texas with a BFA in studio art. She taught high school art, volunteered with Dallas Arts organizations including Art Conspiracy and La Reunion’s Art Chicas Program, as well as co-curating charity art shows. In addition to regularly exhibiting her art, she also works for the Nasher Sculpture Center. Her latest body of work explores figurative abstraction.

Judith Lea Perkins is a professional artist, painter, and printmaker. She earned her Associates Degree of Applied Art in Visual Communication from the Art Institute of Dallas, and has worked in the creative arts field as a scenic artist, muralist, and freelance artist since 1993. Judith is one of the founding members of Kettle Art. She participates regularly with the gallery and has several murals in the Deep Ellum area.
