Rockford Art Museum
Guest curator, Joe Zimmer, will be available to discuss the current exhibition, Life: The Paintings of Deborah Newton, A Retrospective from noon to 4 PM in Anderson Gallery. Stop by anytime on the final day of this exhibition, Sunday, July 9th to join him for a conversation about the curation of the exhibition and Deborah’s work.
Life features a broad and carefully-curated collection of original works from six decades of Deborah Newton’s life-long artistic venture from downtown Rockford pioneer to supportive community leader. Thousands of her cherished works reside in homes, companies, and public institutions across the country. These joyful examples are assembled from private holdings to inspire a path forward for emerging local artists of all ages. Open through July 9th.
Thanks to a grant from Rockford Area Arts Council, admission is free to the museum. Galleries are open 10 AM to 6 PM Thursday through Sunday.
