There will be an opening reception on Saturday, February 25th, from 10:00 AM until 3:00 PM.  “This event gives Rockford Art Guild’s artists an opportunity to share their many talents with the community.  In addition, visitors will learn about the different art opportunities the Rockford Art Guild provides to individuals in the Rockford area,” stated Pam Parkinson,  RAG President.  In addition to the individual art pieces on display, there will be an incredible original, one of a kind, hand painted totes for sale during the February 25th opening reception.

The Rockford Art Guild (RAG) is a supportive and encouraging group of people who have a strong passion for the arts. Each member has opportunities to improve, explore, and challenge themselves in ways they would not find elsewhere. Guild members work together to increase the appreciation of art in the Rockford area. The goal is to provide education, growth, and show opportunities for our members, and for other artists in the community. Members work in a variety of media, including mosaic, beading, painting, pottery, sculpting, photography, woodworking, and more.
