Check out the colorful world of Cris Worley Fine Arts as it debuts the latest solo exhibition from Dallas-based artist Rusty Scruby. Comfort is set to run through June 19 and showcases the artist’s childhood passion for knitting and his pursuits of math and musical composition. His six works of art on display were hand-knitted using a technique of wool knitting on poplar wood construction, incorporating colorful patterns and individual planes that transform the sculptures into abstract puzzles. 1845 E.
