CentralTrak presents Who’s Afraid of Chuck and George? opening reception
CentralTrak presents this visual arts roast of artist duo Brian Jones and Brian Scott. “The Brians,” as they are collectively known by the Dallas arts community, have been living, loving and working together for the past 25 years. Though they each make artworks of their own, when they work collaboratively, they use the moniker “Chuck & George.”
As Chuck & George, Jones and Scott are alternately the protagonists and antagonists in a campy universe of their own creation. The artists present themselves as sexy and grotesque caricatures sharing real and fabricated misadventures. Chuck & George are a quirky and unflattering version of the Romantic Comedy.
Individually and separately, Jones and Scott are incredible artists. They live, breathe and sleep art/music/film and exude a joy de vivre. And they have legendary Halloween parties. Their home is a funky nest that they’ve assembled from all things wonderful and wacky, mixing naughty tchotchkes with fine art within the hand-painted walls and furniture.
Recognizing the universally adored “Brians” as enormous and unique talents, curator and Director of CentralTrak Heyd Fontenot had the idea of assembling their friends for an homage exhibition. Nearly a hundred artists were given the task of immortalizing Chuck & George. And most have answered the call.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will on display through April 4.
