Local artists hold sale/show

On Saturday, July 14, the Rogue River Artists Association (RRAA) held its annual Garden Art Sale/Show at the home of Shirley Dean in Rockford. The weather was fine albeit a tad bit warm in the afternoon, but rain stayed away until after the show. The artists claim to have been known to do a rain dance on the days of the Garden Show. They had a wonderful turnout of customers to view a wide variety of artwork and fine crafts created my the member artists. Their works include handmade purses, other fabric creations, photography, oils, pastels, acrylics and watercolors.

RRAA will be participating in Rockford’s Art in the Park in September, and has working artists that will take part in Harvest Fest weekends. Their final show of the year is the first Saturday of November at the Rockford United Methodist Church on Maple St.

RRAA meetings are normally held on the second Tuesday of the month at the Rockford D&W, upstairs, except for August and December meetings. For more information about RRAA, please contact Lila Harmon at (616) 866-0523 or dlaharmon@prodigy.net.
