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.

Rhombi Survivor Presents “The Float Series” At Kettle Art Gallery
Thursday, January 9th at 7:00pm
The “FLOAT” exhibition date has been set! We’re so happy to be teamed up with Dallas’ most awesome art gallery. It’s been a pleasure working with so many amazing individuals that do so much for our community. This exhibition is dedicated to all those who put in the extra effort to make our city feel more like “home”. I’m eternally grateful to have friends that inspire me on so many levels. I can only hope that we all get to celebrate this awesome collection together… sharing stories, triumphs, laughs, and experiences that may motivate others to follow suit.
Rhombi Survivor Photo Safaris, initially started this project as a way to celebrate the achievements of close friends and leaders within our Dallas community. Once we found our momentum, the “FLOAT” series really took off! It has been a real honor and privilege to document the hobbies and talents of friends that we’ll remember forever! The “FLOAT” collection couldn’t be a more honest look into our community’s, “Pursuit of Happiness”. There’s so much to celebrate and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making this possible, not only for us to enjoy, but for our community to celebrate.
We hope you can make it out for an uplifting evening on Jan. 9th at the NEW Kettle Art on Main. Bring the family, bring a date, or treat yourself to what is sure to be an indelible evening amongst great company. We couldn’t have done it without tapping into the wild and creative energies flowing around the DFW metroplex… we’re positive that you’ll leave feeling inspired and energized!
There will be hor d’oeuvres and beer/wine to compliment your experience as well as some special guests and a few surprises… We’ll be selling the “FLOAT” mosaic poster as well as prints. We’re going to continue posting updates on the event page to keep you updated so please help by inviting everyone you know and we’ll do the rest! This event is open to the public.
See you there!
