Exhibit features work of members of the Rochester advertising community

ROCHESTER, N.Y., Sept. 6, 2018 –The Rochester Advertising Federation (RAF) and the Rochester Contemporary Art Center (RoCo) announce the opening of the 4th RAF_On the Side_2018_1annual On the Side exhibition, a collaborative art exhibit between the two organizations. The On the Side exhibition will be on display at RoCo September 6, 2018 – September 22, 2018. The exhibit will begin with a special opening night celebration on Thursday, September 6, at RoCo, 137 East Ave, Rochester, NY 14604.

On the Side
is an exhibition of fine art made by members of the Rochester Advertising Federation, featuring personal works by some of Rochester’s most well-known creatives, graphic artists, photographers, copywriters and more. The title of the exhibition stems from the personal work that many members of the local advertising community complete outside of their traditional working hours, work that is created “on the side.”

The 2018 On the Side exhibit will feature more than 80 submissions by Rochester-based artists. Since debuting in 2015, On the Side has quickly grown into a signature event and exhibit for the Rochester Advertising Federation and RoCo. In 2018, 29 local artists have work on display at RoCo for the exhibit.
