There will be a casual memorial gathering and art exhibit reception to honor Rockford artist Phil Glass who passed away earlier this year. Phil was well known in Rockford for his creative involvement in the visual arts. The memorial and reception will take place Friday, June 28 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. at Bella Vista Church, 5100 Belding Rd., Rockford. Some of Phil’s artwork will be on display. The family was kind enough to send a sample of the pieces to be displayed to The Squire.
