Chuck & George
Cat Butt Parfait: Chuck & George Explore the Ecosystem of Domestic Feline Digestion

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.

Chuck & George are the collaboration of Dallas-based artists Brian Keith Jones and Brian Keith Scott. Brian K. Jones (Chuck) earned a BFA from The University of North Texas in Painting. In 1990 he joined forces with U.N.T Printmaker Brian K. Scott (George) to form the acclaimed duo Chuck & George. Brian Scott has worked as an artist freelancing and collaborating all of his life. He earned his BFA in Printmaking from the University of North Texas. He was one of the founding and principle artist with the Holton and Associates from 1993-99. He is the founder and a principle artist of the Art Services Collective.

Chuck & George have exhibited both separately and collaboratively in numerous exhibitions, including presentations at the Fort Work Community Arts Center; The Wrong Store, Marfa, TX; McKinney Avenue Contemporary, Dallas; Southfork Gallery, Memphis, TN; Unit B Gallery, San Antonio, TX Conduit Gallery, Dallas, TX; Landmark Arts, Texas Tech University, Lubbock, TX; and CentralTrak, Dallas, TX. They were honored with the 2013 Dallas Observer Mastermind Award. Since 2000 the duo has organized the Oak Cliff Visual SpeedBump Art Tour, an annual public tour of artists’ studios, homes, and galleries that takes place each May.
