Artists’ flea market May 5 at Katie’s Cup

Staff Report

There will be no art on display at the upcoming Rockford Art Guild event.

Saturday, May 5, artists will be willing to part with their carefully-hoarded art supplies at the first-ever RAG pARTS flea market. Here’s a chance to get inspired or try out a new media at a fraction of the cost a retail store would charge.

Deal directly with the artists. These natural magpies and packrats can see art in almost anything, but stashes of leftover paper, fabric, yarn, beads, paint and other art supplies can sometimes overflow their spaces.

Anything from canvas and stained glass to scrapbooking supplies could be available. Even frames and display materials are a possibility, but no completed art.

Hours are 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, May 5, indoors in the meeting room at Katie’s Cup, 502 Seventh St., across from the BMO Bank.

Free admission to the public. This event directly benefits local starving artists and the Rockford Art Guild.
