MYRTLE BEACH, SC.- The Franklin G. Burroughs-Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum presents the delightfully whimsical Pete the Cat: Acrylic Paintings by James Dean. Electrical engineer-turned-artist James Dean initially pursued painting as a sideline from his job at Georgia Power Company. Among his creations were the occasional humorous rendering of his cat, Pete which soon became his best-selling works and a full-time occupation for the artist. In this sampling of 30 acrylic paintings on canvas, Pete can be found in classic pet poses, along with new takes on the old masters works, or on location all over the world. The exhibit runs through Feb. 17.
