Kettle Art presents “Deep: Expressions of the Feminine Aura”, opening on November 6, 7:00-10:00pm. This exhibit runs through Saturday, November 22.
“Deep” brings together five female artists with diverse commentaries on the feminine gender, portrayed through a collectively vibrant palette of color and imagery.
Roxanne Mather: “I am a purist when it comes to paint, capturing light with my paint brush and earthy tools. In the fantasy world I create I consider myself a primitive creature from the future and that fantasy is what my body of work encompasses. Greeting earthlings, the Primal Alien has been grounded.”
Corey Godfrey earned a 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.
Megan Petasky is a 23 year old artist raised in Texas with an immense interest in horror films. Her artwork is a harmony of spindly, macabre, seemingly tormented freaks. After graduating from Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design, she returned to Dallas where she works as a Visual Development Artist for an animation studio.
Emily Hawkins studied fine arts at the University of North Texas and University of Wisconsin. She has been a professional graphic designer since 2006. “Deep” will be her first gallery show as a featured artist.
Harmony Witte’s watercolors utilize vibrant color and strong themes to present glimpses of an alternate reality. Inspired by environment, pop culture, hallucinations, delusions, and daydreams, this other universe is created in moments of hypomania.
