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.
