In Print members will have their work featured as part of the Allegory Project, an art space and exhibition co-sponsored by the Art Matters Artist Coop and the Rockford Area Arts Council. The Allegory Project plans to have a theme that is explored in various art forms: painting and sculpture, photography, repurposed objects, and the spoken and written word.
Eight In Print members wrote short pieces answering the question, “What makes a story worth telling?” Their pieces have been framed at the gallery and will be available for viewing from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday through the end of May. The show space is on the northwest corner of Madison and Prairie Streets in Rockford.
The opening weekend will have extended hours – 4:00 pm to 10:00 pm. Christopher Sims will host an “open mike” session each night at 9:00 and attendees can share original poetry and stories.
