Texas artists Chuck and George created the exhibit to get patrons talking (if not being overzealous with the snapping of selfies) in this multi-media show designed in full color. Center Curator Dennis Nance explained to ABC13.com, “It’s really funny and humorous to see people’s reaction to it. It’s a little gross, but it’s also really funny. They play with the grotesque and how you make light of things.”

Founded over two decades ago, the Galveston Contemporary Arts Center is the area’s only permanent location for support of the visual arts. Featuring rotating exhibits, the center picked has displayed the work from this Dallas-based duo in all its glory, including the special selfie section! With free admission, what do you have to lose? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and this exhibit definitely has some hidden loveliness that cat fans can appreciate. “Chuck & George create a colorful fantasia inspired by the parasites that populate the domestic feline digestive system. Often referencing their personal lives, their exhibition presents a good-humored dissection with variation and theme. The multiple media installation includes paintings, drawings, ceramics, and papier-mâché,” the center’s website states.
