Art is more than paint and canvas

Rockford Art in the Park
a multi-media event

Artists from across the state of Michigan compete in this juried art exhibition, featuring works in pottery, stoneware, sculpture, jewelry. glass works, painting, fiber arts and more. Artists are on hand to showcase their works, which are available for purchase by arts patrons at the event. A “Best of Show” award as well as five “Best of Category” awards (in Jewelry, Pottery/Stoneware/Sculpture, Glassworks, Painting, Fiber Arts) are presented.
