Contextual Assembly opening Feb. 23 at Kettle Art

Contextual_Assembly_square

Kettle Art proudly presents ‘Contextual Assembly’ a group exhibit featuring new works by Corey Godfrey, Hilda Lafleur, Roberta Masciarelli, and Amy Seymour.

From Corey’s soft, yarn focus on stones, to Hilda’s psychedelic imagery, to Roberta’s recycled constructions, to Amy’s imaginative world of clay, these four artists are united in whimsical, dream-like realities. This exhibit opens on Thursday, February 23, 2017, from 7:00-10:00pm, and runs through Saturday, March 18.

Kettle Art Gallery Deep in the Art of Ellum
2650-B Main Street  Dallas, TX 75226 www.kettleart.com

Roberta_Masciarelli_Animal_Condo

Corey Godfrey is a Texas-based artist whose past works have focused primarily on women as subject matter, utilizing yarn as her medium, a material traditionally associated with them. In her current series, Corey is inspired by stones found in nature that exemplify beauty, strength, and a profound sense of femininity. Corey holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from North Texas State University.

Roberta Masciarelli  is a Brazilian-born visual artist based in Dallas for the past eighteen years. Her art consists of sculptures, or constructions, created from found objects and materials, such as metal hardware. Having been a full-time artist for approximately ten years, Roberta has participated in art events within the US including Dallas, Washington DC, Santa Fe, Sedona, and New York. Internationally, she has exhibited in collective exhibits in England, Holland, Denmark, Portugal, Spain, Turkey, South Africa, New Zealand, Bosnia, Japan, Italy, and India. She earned a Bachelor of Architecture from Mackenzie University, Sao Paulo, Brazil.

HIlda Lafleur is a self-taught, Texas-born-and-bred artist. Hilda’s unique eye for color produces upbeat paintings inspired by frequent trips throughout Europe, further influenced by a life spent in Dallas during the turbulent sixties, seventies, and beyond. Her works are created on hand made canvas and painted with a unique concoction of acrylic paint and secret ingredients.

Amy Seymour is a Dallas native who has been creating art, sculpture, and photography for approximately twenty years. Amy’s work depicts a playful and mischievous vision from a dreamy realm within her subconscious view of the world around us.

Richard Ross: Hiraeth opens August 25 at Kettle Art

Ross-LE MAT

Kettle Art is proud to present ‘Hiraeth’ featuring works by Richard Ross with special guest Jesse Sierra Hernandez. The exhibit opens on Thursday, August 25, 7:00 – 10:00PM, and runs through Saturday, September 17. Kettle Art is located at 2650-B Main Street in Deep Ellum.
What can be said about Richard Ross and his work that has not been said before… Genius? Prolific? Mystifying? Mythical? Collectable? These words, and many more, all ring true to countless art lovers throughout the DFW metroplex.  “All I can tell you is that Kettle Art got extremely lucky that Spring day in 2006 when Richard walked in to drop off some work for an open group show.  During the install, four or five pieces sold before they even got up off the floor” recalls gallery owner Frank Campagna. ‘” had to call him to ask if he had more.” To make a long story short, he did, and promptly delivered several additional pieces of his ‘whimsical masterpieces’ before the opening. In all, Richard Ross’ works clearly resonate with those who see them, and these viewers can’t help but be charmed.
Richard L. Ross, Artist Statement:Ross-a conversation with fear
 
hiraeth
1.homesickness
2.an

intense form of longing or nostalgia

As I come upon my 50th year as a traveler on the road to the store, I’m taking a moment to stop and remember some of the milestones along the way. I’ll be hosting a reflective show of my art work, along with a very special guest Jesse Sierra Hernandez, who helped me on this journey 20 years ago while we were both working out of Fort Worth Artist and Co. and St. Mary’s artist studios.

Richard L. Ross, Artist Bio:
Ross is a self-taught artist from Irving, Texas with a degree in history from the University of Dallas. He began forming his artistic voice in the atmosphere of the early hardcore punk scene of Dallas.  During this time, he found glimpses of beauty in the chaos of specific moments, and the    to question the grand narratives that had formed his life’s early foundations. Ross developed his own metanarrative which he has called “The Road to the Store”, based on the Kantian concept that beliefs are formed from the question “what can I hope”. Ross sees himself as a traveller along the road, with this question motivating his destination as one going to the store to shop for basic needs and desires.  In his body of work, Ross has created a symbolistic cast of characters who play out his narrative in beautiful glimpses of the chaos and uncertainty within the journey.

Stereotropes: Thomas Menikos and Tony Veronese at Mokah

Stereotropes CardFront Final Version

Stereotropes Opening Reception

Mokah Gallery in Dallas, Texas

Stereotropes is a show that takes a lighthearted look into daily narratives influenced by current and nostalgic pop-culture.  Conversations take place in a visual language where voice becomes color as two voices build a new narrative from opinions and memories. On a most basic level the show looks at the relation of tropes, archetypes and clichés as parallels are drawn between subject matters as conversations flow through times of serious discussion, to joking and outright insult wars.  The images presented are created to be viewed with the use of 3D glasses so the viewer can decipher each voice separately along with seeing each image in all its collaborative and chaotic glory.

Reception runs from 6pm-9pm. Thomas Caleb Menikos and Michael Veronese will be giving an artist talk at 7:30pm.

He works with canvases using acrylic paints as well as painting on location to get the best images for his work. Stuart will bring paintings that show the Irish Sea, Virgin trains, Stena Line, Irish ferries and others.
Originally a cotton gin factory built by Robert S. Munger, the CGB was the largest manufacturer of cotton-processing equipment in the United States. In 1982, John Tatum bought the building with the knowledge and vision that art contributes to the economy of communities. The 125 year old building is now known as the oldest art community in Deep Ellum.

Their style of music brings a great vibe to all things art. CGB will also be participating in the Deep Ellum Art Walk which will be taking place on that Saturday, April 18th.
About the CGB
For over two decades, artists have occupied the 125 year-old Continental Gin Building, making it one of the oldest creative communities in Dallas. At least twice a year, the studios are open to the public, each Fall and Spring. Presently, over two dozen artists occupy the historic building. The Continental Gin Company was built in 1888 by Robert S. Munger, housed in a series of brick warehouses along Elm Street and Trunk Avenue. The company was closed in 1962, as Deep Ellum went through several transitions. In 1982, local real estate developer John Tatum purchased the property and spaces first began being rented to artists, thus establishing the Continental Gin Building as one of the oldest art communities in Dallas. It now houses a mix of accomplished professionals, soon-to-be-discovered and the as-yet undiscovered hopefuls, who are all diligently pursuing their talents whether that be apparel design, graphic design, photography, sculptures, film, painting, glasswork or more.
