Rockford's Spring Art Scene showcases artwork throughout the city
ROCKFORD (WREX) -
Rockford art enthusiasts took advantage of Saturday's good weather to stroll around town.
The Spring Art Scene took over the area this weekend. One artist set up at Abreo Restaurant downtown to display his glass paintings. The Art Scene showcases original works at various venues. People enjoy paintings, sculptures, photography, and more.
"These are all reclaimed windows actually, all found in the trash or in alleys in the city," said Brett Whitacre, the artist of the "Off Color" collection at Abreo. "My technique's called reversed glass paintings. 100 percent spray paint and it's all rendered from the backside of this glass."
Whitacre's art will remain up for sale at Abreo through the end of May.
