Galveston Arts Center (GAC) presents new exhibitions opening Saturday, January 19, 2019, from 6:00 to 9:00 PM with artist talks beginning at 6:30. In the first-floor gallery, Marfa-based artist Camp Bosworth presents intricately carved and painted wood sculptures inspired by the menu items of Dairy Queen for the exhibition THANK YOU, PLEASE DRIVE THRU. In the second-floor 1878 and Brown Foundation Galleries, New Orleans-based artist, musician, and puppeteer Miss Pussycat presents an installation of her puppets and their worlds for the exhibition The Puppet Worlds of Miss Pussycat. In GAC’s second-floor vault, Miss Pussycat’s partner Quintron presents one of his most notable inventions, the Drum Buddy. DRUM BUDDY (Miss Pussycat Model) is a one of a kind version of his light activated, analog synthesizer, installed to activate the unique acoustics of one of GAC’s historic vaults.
