Rockford Art Guild (RAG) is collaborating with Nicholas Conservatory for the sixth year with a new and exciting exhibit of more than 25 pieces of art. Nicholas Conservatory is located at 1354 N. Second Street, Rockford.
Artwork will be on display in the lobby from Friday, February 14th through February 29th. There will be an opening reception on Sunday, February 16th, from 1:00 PM 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.
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.
To be a part of the Nicholas Conservatory show you need to be a paid member of the Rockford Art Guild. You can submit up to three photos in jpeg format (each photo can only be 1 MB or less) of your art work with the form below. The cost is $10 total for up to 3 pieces. This is a first come-first served show so you are wise to submit work early. The deadline for submitting the artwork is January 31st. Notification to artists will be the end of January.
Art submitted can be dropped off at Nicholas Conservatory on Friday, February 14th, between 10:00 and 12:00. The show will be hung that day from 12:00-3:00. Your artwork must remain at Nicholas for the duration of the show.
Art must be picked up on March 1st between 1:00 pm and 3:00 pm. Anyone who cannot pick up their art during these times need to arrange someone to get them for you.
