Local artist opens gallery downtown


A Rockford artist opens a downtown gallery in order to provide others with a way to display their artwork.

The State of the Art Gallery at 218 East State Street opened earlier this month. Owner Roni Golan said there needs to be a way to bring to light the numerous artists in the area. He said besides the artwork, there's also music provided by local musicians.

"I'm learning. It's a new area for me. I'm learning the traffic, I'm learning how people react. City Market is opening soon so this will really bring people in to put me on the map, put the gallery on the map," said Golan.

Golan said he would like to see more art galleries in downtown Rockford.
