Congratulations are in order for our own Jennifer Fais who was commissioned to create the artwork for the commemorative poster for the 33rd annual Wineglass Marathon, which takes place October 5th. She created a wonderful watercolor painting, A Perfect Day to Run, that captures a scene over the Chemung River that takes in some of Corning’s iconic images. “This view of Corning is one of my favorites,” Jennifer said in a release. “It sums up Corning for me — the ‘Little Joe’ Tower, the Corning Inc. headquarters, and the beautifully renovated walking bridge. I bet it is a happy sight for our Wineglass Marathon runners, as well!”
On October 4th, the West End Gallery will be hosting an event with Jennifer Fais from noon until 5 PM. Posters will be available for purchase and Jennifer will be there to personally sign yours! It should be a great day to stroll down Market Street to meet the artist and take in some of the scenery that inspired her.
Congratulations, Jennifer, on a great painting and poster for a great event.
