Carter Ernst and Paul Kittelson will fill the Galveston Arts Center’s main gallery with a fantastical display of flora and fauna, including aluminum plants, furry creatures, and clay figures for their exhibition "An Unearthly Affair."

The artists have created a world where art becomes the creative force in shaping the environment; where psychology replaces biology; and evolution is driven by the artist’s imagination. While Ernst and Kittelson each employ their own unique materials and techniques, their long-term partnership has fostered a common outlook on life and a deep appreciation for the natural world.

For this exhibition Ernst’s expressive representations of the animal kingdom are paired with Kittelson’s mechanical constructions of botanical subjects. Together their worlds collide in a surreal installation which celebrates the wonders of nature during a time of environmental trepidation.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until January 9, 2022.
