Aralyn McGregor: A Thousand Words or Less
The Cedars Art Gallery is pleased to announce the first solo exhibition of Dallas artist Aralyn McGregor, opening June 27th, 2009, from 7 to 9 pm. In A Thousand Words or Less, McGregor will be exhibiting her works on paper, including thirty large, medium, and small scale pen and ink drawings on a variety of watercolor paper, found paper, and unbleached recycled paper.

Aralyn McGregorís work begins a conversation - or collaboration - by combining familiar symbols and imagery without providing a straight forward narrative. While she cites a variety of themes and sources of inspiration, collective action stands out in many of her works. In several pieces, androgynous mobs organize to produce varied results for their labor. They migrate through elements and obstacles that border on the recognizable.

McGregor extends the theme of collective action into the gallery space. At the entrance of the gallery, she has provided 1000 magnetic words and phrases, and each drawing includes a corresponding strip where participants place their response. With this installation, the conversation exists not only between participants, but also anonymously as the responses are given and rearranged throughout the showís duration.

Aralyn McGregor received her B.F.A. from the University of North Texas and lives in Dallas.
