Deadline for applications is Friday, March 9.

The Rockford Area Arts Council announces that applications are being sought for ArtScene 2007, to be held Friday, April 20 from 5-9 p.m., and Saturday, April 21, from 3-9 p.m.

If you are interested in participating, please note:

1. Spring ArtScene 2007 will continue to be a visual arts “gallery tour” coordinated by the Rockford Area Arts Council, and open to any gallery, studio, home studio, or commercial establishment that agrees to exhibit original visual art.

2. All participants must agree to be open during the established hours. Participants may choose to add Sunday hours and do their own advertising.

3. Participants are urged to publicize their own exhibits, using the Spring ArtScene logo, as a means to increase audiences, in addition to the Arts Council’s advertising and publicity efforts. The Arts Council is now working on a 2007 Spring ArtScene poster, which will be available to all participants.

Entry fee is $100, due to the Arts Council no later than Friday, March 9. Application forms are available at the Rockford Area Arts Council, 713 E. State St., Rockford, IL 61104.
