A large and enthusiastic crowd of Corn Hill neighbors, local dignitaries, festival sponsors and supporters gathered at Tony D’s Banquet Room along the Genesee River for the annual Corn Hill Arts Festival poster unveiling. The June 24th event included speeches from Corn Hill Neighbors Association President Rob Goodling, Arts Festival Chairs Jeff Holdsworth and Joanie Fraver, Rochester Deputy Mayor Leonard Redon, and David Fiedler, CEO of the ESL Credit Union.
Deputy Mayor Redon and CEO Fiedler joined this year’s poster artist Kat Patterson in unveiling the 2014 festival poster. Many will remember Kat as last year’s first prize winner at the Emerging Artists venue. Her poster promises to be very popular with visitors and neighborhood collectors alike.
Scott Osborn, owner of Fox Run Vineyards, official wine sponsor of this year’s festival, also presented a bottle featuring a label of the 2014 Corn Hill Poster for Kat’s signature. Fox Run’s Cabernet Franc-Lemberger and Riesling wine samplings were then made available for all in attendance, as well as Pizza, Arancini, Chicken Wings and other beverages from Tony D’s.
