Looking forward to a lovely Saturday 🌸💮🌼
A shout-out to everyone who has an interest in remarkable local art / sculpture. This current show "Metal Works" is one of the best I've seen there. Who knew you could do that with steel, aluminum, copper and vision. Thank you, artists for bringing your great talent to Aitkin!
Jaques featured in article on Bell Museum.
We visited the center today and voted for our favorite art entries. The center & gallery are gorgeous. It is a very pleasant place and free! 😁
