Festival of arts returns to Rochester in July

July 5, 2012 by  

Taking place this weekend, July 7 and 8, The Corn Hill Arts Festival makes a welcome return to the area and promises to be even more exciting than in previous years.

The festival has built up quite a reputation and is consistently rated in the top 200 US festivals to attend. Hundreds of artists are attending this year, covering all disciplines from jewelry, metalwork, and woodwork to painting, sculpture, and photography. In addition, four stages are in place for continuous live music to add to the festive atmosphere available at the venue.

A local artist, Lisa Robinson, was commissioned to design the poster for the festival and, thanks to the efforts of various printing companies with skills in poster and flyer printing as well as printing on fabric, the produced artwork is now available for sale on materials ranging from posters and flyers to commemorative wine bottles from Casa Larga Vineyards.

The Emerging Artist Expo is part of the festival and is aimed at encouraging new artists between the ages of 15 and 25. It should be noted that qualifying criteria stipulates that the entrant must never have taken part in a similar competition in the past. Those who qualify can display and perhaps sell their work to interested viewers.

Vintage art posters can be purchased during the event. These are high-quality replicas of the original work and are produced by professionals in the printing services industry to ensure maximum color matching and quality that compares with that of the original piece.
