Over The Line

 

Kettle Art Gallery proudly presents ‘Over the Line’, an exhibition featuring new works by Dan Colcer, Clint Scism, Larry Carey, and Raymond Butler.

This exhibit examines the diverse, yet unifying, use of line in each of the four artists’ works. From Colcers’ implementation of numerous characters within a larger image, to Scism’s multi-layered, three-dimensional works on glass, to Carey’s 1960s influenced, mandala-esque pieces, to Butler’s re-appropriation of international currency etchings, each artist interprets the simplicity of line with a unique vision.

‘Over the Line’ opens Thursday, July, 10th, 7:00 – 10:00pm and runs through Saturday, August 2nd.

Departing The Kingdom Of Sensibility

 

Kettle Art proudly presents “Departing the Kingdom of Sensibility” featuring works by sculptor Darlene Schaper, photographer Zoie Vandal, and painter Jodi VonRotten.

On view in this exhibit, three disparate mediums converge in an eclectic exploration of surrealism and the female artistic perspective.

Darlene Schaper is a Native Oregonian living in Dallas, Texas and a graduate of the Pacific NW College of Art. The artist’s work combines decorative elements and embellishes objects into 3-D sculptural worlds of wonder. Using vintage fur, lace, discarded toys, and much more, she reinvents obscure antiques and oddities into precious animals, sculptures, shrines and reliquaries. http://darleneschaper.wix.com/pet-art

Zoie Vandal is a multifaceted artist whose work encompasses a range of genres, including photography, music, dance, modeling, production, SFX, and set work. The artist’s stylized photographic images have recently been featured in Vogue and Dark Beauty magazines. http://www.ashotnthedark.com/

Jodi VonRotten is a visual artist and university professor concerned with the exploration of identity and the individual through the examination of boundaries and relationships, materials and process, and anatomy vs. the figure. The artist brings to life narrations that create a bridge between reality and the unseen reality. http://www.liesandprophecies.com/

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.

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.
