Archer Communications, Inc. is pleased to announce that the 2nd Annual Emerging Artists Expo at this year’s Corn Hill Arts Festival was a tremendous success. As the Expo’s sponsor, Archer Communications strove to create an inviting, interactive, and fun atmosphere, encouraging Festival visitors to walk the red carpet and pose for “paparazzi photos,” as well as inviting them to create artwork, which was displayed in the Archer tent.

“Everyone at Archer is extremely pleased with how the weekend went. We really tried to make the Expo the highlight of the Festival. I feel that people really enjoyed the activities we offered at the entrance of the Expo and interacting with fresh, young, Rochester-based talent,” said Jeff Lennox, President of Archer Communications.

Jeff continues, “For most of these artists, the 2nd Annual Emerging Artists Expo was their public debut. It was a chance for them to sell and display their artwork to a large and diverse audience. I am pleased that Archer could partake in supporting these passionate and brilliant artists.”

The Emerging Artists Expo webpage (www.archercom.com/emerging-artists) will be updated with Expo photos and videos throughout the upcoming weeks. Festival-goers are invited to visit the site to view their pictures on the red carpet, as well as video interviews with the artists, and more.

Archer Communications would also like to congratulate Heather Swenson on winning 1st place for the Emerging Artists Expo category. As promised, Ms. Swenson will be presented with a customized website to showcase her portfolio of work throughout year. “I am grateful to Archer Communications for providing me with such a generous gift. This will really help me gain exposure to the public and help me keep in contact with other artists,” said Swenson. She continues, “I gave out a lot of business cards at the Festival, but everyone also kept asking me if I had a website. Getting a website has been something I have been putting off, so I am thrilled that Archer is going to help me finally put my art on the web.”

Heather Swenson, an Irondequoit native, is a rising junior at SUNY Purchase College of Art Design. She felt that Expo went very well for her, as she sold several pieces and networked with many of the area’s local artists and art professionals. The 2nd Annual Emerging Arts Expo was Swenson’s inaugural showing to the general public and she was thrilled as to how many people were intrigued with her work and the process of woodcut lithograph printing. She is also excited to be recognized for her hard work and dedication to her art. Swenson said that, “Winning this honor provides me with affirmation and confidence that I can succeed within a medium that I am passionate about.” You may see Swenson’s work around Rochester at different events this Summer—events she was invited to show at by people with whom she connected with at the Expo.
