This Mother's Day, Sunday, May 14th, take your Mom for dinner or brunch and present her with an extraordinary gift from J.R. Kortman Center for Design. It can be both practical and beautiful like a Michael Graves designed water kettle, or something elegant like a pearl necklace or hand-blown glass perfume bottle, or even a piece of original art from the Kortman Gallery. Whatever you choose she will treasure it for a lifetime since it came from you and J.R. Kortman! Open Monday - Friday, 11am to 6pm & Saturday, 11am to 5pm
If you haven't seen the beautiful paintings by Rockford artists JoanLee Stassi, her exhibition, "Reflections: Backward/Forward...Paintings/Prints" has been extended through April 12th.

Kortman Gallery is hosting a "closing party" for JoanLee's show on First Friday, April 7th from 6-10pm, (maybe even later) featuring Dennis Horton tending the Kortman Gallery Bar!
And don't forget our new Store & Gallery hours are Monday to Friday 11am – 6pm and Saturday 11am – 5pm!
Rockford artist JoanLee Stassi feels as much at home in her Provincetown (Massachusetts) studio as she does in her hometown of Rockford when she is creating her dynamic and engaging works of art. A resident of both contrasting environments, Stassi has embraced her surroundings that have impacted her work and life for her entire art career.
On Friday, February 3rd, Stassi will be presenting works from the past and present, both paintings and prints in “Reflections: Backward/Forward…Paintings/Prints,” an exhibition opening in the Kortman Gallery, Downtown Rockford.
“The sea plays a prominent role in the imagery found in my paintings and prints,” says Stassi. “The opportunity to live and work in the oceanside community of Provincetown, Massachusetts, along with travels to various Caribbean Islands, and even music, continually nurtures my visual language.”
