“Our first exhibit entitled ‘ESP’ reflects the Galactic Panther, which is focused on contemporary art that doesn’t limit itself by genre, media, borders, or states of mind,” explains Eli. “Although science took a while to prove the existence of ESP, artists have been employing this extra sense in their creative endeavors all along.” And this exhibit expresses that to a tee.

Eli and Erik are longtime friends, and Erik has accumulated quite the collection of Eli’s stellar work, much of which can be seen at ESP Tea and Coffee, 1012 King St. in Old Town.

“I can’t wait for Old Town to experience Galactic Panther and this exhibit,” says Erik. “It’s the perfect addition to an already thriving arts community.”

With its mission of striving to “represent the underrepresented alongside more established artists, such as Picasso and Carl Holty,” Galactic Panther will complement the eclectic vibe Old Town has come to acquire over the years, combining the historical with the new, famed with the funky.

A portion of each sale from Galactic Panther will go to charities that feed people in need of assistance.
