This past weekend in Culver City, Thinkspace Gallery opened the great group/themed exhibition, The Gilded Age, featuring the works of Aaron Horkey, Esao Andrews, and Joao Ruas. We did an entire feature on the exhibition in our September 2015 issue, which you can read here, and on Saturday night, we headed to the opening to see the people, see the art, and get gilded.

The Gilded Age, as coined by Mark Twain, rose from the settling smoke and blood-soaked fields of the Civil War. Many factories built for military endeavors were repurposed for new manufacturing. Industry developed at a fierce pace. Veins of railroads rippled across the musculature of the country. Along with demand for gold, steel and oil, this created a significant rise in America’s economic wealth. By the early 1900s, the US became the largest industrial nation in the world. Immigration swelled; wealth, however, belonged to the few. Ruthless business men controlled it, creating social and economic disparity, where chasms of poverty were obscured by a golden glow.

We are proud to kick off the Fall season with a cover story on San Francisco-based fine artist Richard Colman. Richard's work has evolved and expanded so much since we last spoke to him in 2010, and his newest body of work continues to be an exploration on the way we as humans communicate and interact. We spent a few weeks with Richard in his studio in SF as well as around the city he calls home to catch a glimpse at the intricate details of the working artist's life.

And finally, the art. We are so proud of all the artwork that is on exhibit in "Art Truancy: Celebrating 20 Years of Juxtapoz Magazine," open at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC through June 14, 2014. It blows our mind that we are now two decades old, but what is even more amazing are all the artists that have been in our pages over those years. Their works tell the story, create the chance to document alternative art narratives, bring out the fans, bring out the collectors, and keep the creative energy of Juxtapoz alive. Here, then, is all the art in "Art Truancy."

The exhibition features a wide-range of cover artists and featured artists from over the past 20 years, and today we have a look at some of the covers from artists in the show. From Robert Williams to Grotesk, Mark Ryden to Swoon, here is a bit of a history lesson to catch up on, or reminisce over.

Aaron Horkey was birthed and reared in Windom, Minnesota, in the heart of the Rural Midwest. Key personality traits include debilitating social ineptitude and a perverse attention to detail. Enjoys desolation, megafauna and transplanting sumacs. Currently ensconced in a bucolic whistlestop just west of the Mississippi, he whiles away the hours staring at his chore list and cultivating ulcers. He is the sole survivor of the Black Osprey Dead Arts Society and founding member of the Cottonwood County Druids Skateboard Gang.

Mondo, the art arm of Alamo Drafthouse Cinema (we are talking boutique goodness of boutique goodness here), is releasing a series of commissioned posters for Peter Jackson’s The Lord of The Rings film series. That should have fans happy enough, but where we at Juxtapoz get excited is November 2011 cover artist, Aaron Horkey, is one of the artist's who designed a poster. It was unveiled last night at the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar in Austin, Texas.
