The Missourian Minute is a regular video series of scenes from around mid-Missouri. These visual slices of life capture the sights and sounds of people and the activities they love.

COLUMBIA — Artlandish Gallery hosted a celebration on July 18 in memory of local artist Rex Bandy, who died June 21. Bandy was a fixture at Cooper's Landing before his death, and often exhibited his art at Artlandish.

The event was part of Artrageous Fridays, a quarterly exhibition and celebration that features paintings, music, jewelry, sculpture and photography from local artists. According to Artrageous' website, the point of the event is for curious citizens to act as their own tour guides and enjoy new cultural experiences.

Jam band Jemerson Creek kicked off the festivities, and Bandy's son "Naked" Dave was among the musicians to perform at the gathering.

Art exhibits included "Tigers on the Prowl" – a set of five-foot-tall tiger sculptures designed and painted by local artists – and a massive garden gnome courtesy of local artist Stephen Feilbach.

In addition to the outdoor extravaganza, there were exhibits of paintings and jewelry in the catacombs of Artlandish as well as more live music.
