Carol Kaminski, an artist specializing in the use of pigmented resin to create her unique style of realism, is heading to Rochester for the Corn Hill Arts Festival to be held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on July 14 and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on July 15 in the Corn Hill neighborhood.
Growing up in Pittsford, Kaminski developed an interest in art and began to hone her talent to design realistic compositions at an early age. Kaminski later graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in computer graphic design. She is excited to have been chosen to participate in this year’s festival and hopes to visit with some old friends while in the area.
A close friend of Kaminski’s — Bob O’Brien, lead singer with the classic rock band Wild Horses — recently lost his battle with myelodysplastic syndrome. He received medical care from his team of doctors at the Wilmot Cancer Institute in Rochester. Inspired by the Corn Hill Arts Festival’s 50th anniversary and the event’s new branding, Kaminski has created a
commemorative piece of art titled “Spring in Lunsford Park.” She will auction her painting and donate the proceeds to O’Brien’s family to help with medical expenses.
Attendees can stop by to visit Kaminski on Frederick Douglass Street, booth 47, to submit the offer and donation for the art she painted exclusively for this festival and her friend.
