When most people think of a world-class artist having a gallery opening, fancy spots in New York or L.A. come to mind. Surely the coolest of cool show up in their awesome-pants. This one was a little different. Windom, MN. Population: 4490. Aaron's hometown, and no place more fitting. Hosted by The Remick Gallery at Cottonwood County Historical Society, the happily overwhelming amount work on display ranged from original pen & ink drawings, screen printed concert posters & art prints, skateboard graphics, album artwork, source material & more. Some came from as far as Japan (Hi Shingo!), while others merely walked down the street to see what that Horkey kid was up to these days... It was pretty amazing to see the amount of work all together in one space. I highly recommend taking a day trip from Minneapolis if you can. There really isn't a better time to drive through rural southwestern Minnesota. Take your time to soak in the surroundings that inspired all of this handcrafted mastery. Stop and listen to the wind. The show runs through November 20th. Remick Gallery hours: Mon.-Fri. 8am-4pm, Sat. 10-4 See more photos from the opening on my Flickr.
