Beginning in 2019 GAC’s exhibition schedule will rotate new exhibitions between the first and second floor galleries, offering extended viewing periods and a new exhibition opening every ArtWalk in alternating galleries.

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." Following the opening reception, this exhibit will be on display until March 3.

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. Following the opening reception, these two exhibits will be on display until April 21.
