ROCKFORD (WREX) - Sunday's rain cut an art show short. Rockford College got a few hours into its annual Art on the Lawn event and had to pack it in when the weather took a bad turn.
More than 50 artists were out there, selling everything from paintings to jewelry.
"This is a chance for people to see local artists and artists in the surrounding area, things that you don't normally see, things that a lot of times you can't buy in the stores," said artist Jamie Zander-Tarara.
Fellow artist Char terBeest Kudla agrees. "I love the show," she said. "I'm sad that we got rained out today, but I got about three good hours in. I'll be back next year."
This was the 11th year for Art on the Lawn.
