Susan Burns’ “Kentucky Derby” (2014).

Best known for her expressive paintings of horses, Susan Easton Burns was the official 2014 Kentucky Derby poster artist. But the Atlanta painter is interested in all sorts of animals, as the exhibition, “Altered States: The Art of Susan Easton Burns and Julia Burns,” opening 5:30-8 p.m. Thursday at Cartersville’s Booth Western Art Museum, makes clear.

Burns will give a talk with her daughter Julia, a ceramicist who also finds inspiration in fauna, at 7 p.m. Their show runs through March 15.

Meanwhile it’s last call for the major Booth survey exhibit drawn from southern collections, “Western American Art South of the Sweet Tea Line IV,” which closes Jan. 25.

$10; ages 65 and up, $8; students, $7; ages 12 and under and active military with ID, free. 501 N. Museum Drive, Cartersville. 770-387-1300, boothmuseum.org.
