New art exhibit features local artists

ROCKFORD (WREX) - A new art exhibit in Rockford is showing off the work of local artists.

The Print Makers Ball is coming to the Rockford Art Museum this Friday.  It features the work of 14 artists, including the Fatherless Print Posse.  The group is made up of five Rockford artists who work together on pieces and have started to grab world wide attention.

"They've gotten so many opportunities internationally and their name is really getting out there," says exhibit curator Carrie Johnson.  "I felt like as their home-base and their community it was really important for us to support them."

The exhibit opens to the public this Friday starting at 7 p.m.
