Midwest Stone Source Art Fair Benefits Mission

A holiday art fair, bazaar & silent auction on Saturday, Dec. 7, benefit the Mission.

The event runs from noon to 8 p.m. at Midwest Stone Source & Kitchen Design Studio, 915 W. 23rd St., Rockford.

Donations of a piece of art from each participating artist (and more) will make up a silent auction of unique offerings ranging from wood-turning Santas to handmade glass-bead jewelry. Proceeds go to the Mission.

“There will even be additional types of art for sale on December 7,” says Dee Santorini of the Rockford Art Guild.  “Everything from mosaics on different objects, painted mannequins, wooden bowls. Some of the best potters in Rockford will also have their work for sale: fine art, custom scarves, uniquely made shawls, as well as an endless array of gift items which will be available that day.”

“I suggest you grab your favorite shopping partner and come out to support both Rockford’s Art community and those who are locally in need,” says Midwest Stone Source co-proprietor Jodi Phillips.
