"I paint to make my experience of the world more concrete to myself and to make permanent an elusive moment"

Dora started her over half century career as a painter in 1956. Her work was usually abstract but always inspired by the natural world. She was captivated by the infinite variety of forms and colors in nature and their repetition in water, sand, stone and wood. She enjoyed local and regional gallery and museum shows and was particularly excited about interpreting what she experienced in her many visits to Taughannock State Park, Cape Cod, the Grand Canyon, and the surreal landscape of Utah. She also enjoyed trips to Greece, Italy and her ancestral home of Slovenia, all of which influenced her painting.

4 Days of Live Music
End of Summer Music Fest

While summer is winding down, Market Street Social will be heating up when it presents its first annual End-of-Summer Music Fest, August 31st through September 3rd.   The “free” festival at Radisson Corning’s outdoor dining and entertainment venue is a celebration of the area’s vibrant music scene, with four days of local artists as well as games, activities, and summer foods and drinks.  In addition, there will be daily fundraising opportunities for the United Way of the Southern Tier, the beneficiary which is dedicated to taking care of people who need food or shelter.  This charitable effort for United Way will also coincide with the inauguration of the hotel’s voluntary employee donation program.  

The Music and Food
End-of-Summer Music Fest will kick off daily with an opening act before the nightly headliner takes the stage followed by a chill unplugged session under the stars to close things out (schedule follows below – on Aug 31 only a headliner will perform).   Besides the tunes, Executive Chef Bill Winnie will satisfy those insatiable summer appetites each day by manning the outdoor grill and personally cooking up a selection of sliders, Italian sausage, and chicken skewers to go along with other event F&B specials like flatbread pizzas, pretzel rods with cheddar beer sauce, and steamed clams as well as an assortment of refreshing adult slushies and buckets of beer.  Guests are also invited to further lean into summer nostalgia by cozying around Market Street Social’s firepits and trying their hand at roasting S’mores while the music plays on.  Market Street Social’s full contemporary American, farm-driven menu and beverage list will be available upon request too.  

The Activities and Accommodations 
When it comes to gaming, End-of-Summer Music Fest is pulling out all the stops.  Cornhole, Giant Jenga, Giant Connect 4, Bocce Ball, and Croquet will be among the various friendly tournaments running all weekend on Market Street Social’s sprawling lawns.  For $1, guests can purchase raffle tickets benefitting the event’s designated charity partner, United Way of the Southern Tier, for a chance at hand selected bottles of wine by the hotel’s Food & Beverage Director Will Bradley.   Also outside on the lawns will be free pre-fest yoga classes (with a donation to United Way) on Saturday and Sunday from 2 pm to 3 pm followed by complimentary mimosas.  To top it off, for all those who’d like to make it a multi-day experience, the Radisson is offering an End-of-Summer staycation package that includes guestroom accommodations with full breakfast for two, specialty cocktails for two, and S’mores kits they could enjoy together at Market Street Social.

A dramatic movie scene on the brink of Fall Creek Gorge in Ithaca
Silent Movies in our Parks

Following upon the annual "Silent Movie under the Stars" event at Taughannock Falls State Park in August, Walk in the Park presents this encore episode from 2019. 
In 1915, Leo and Ted Wharton established a movie studio at Renwick Park (now Stewart Park) at the south end of Cayuga Lake in Ithaca, NY. For several years they made numerous silent movies and weekly serials for national distribution using the town and area gorges. In this episode of Walk in the Park (219), we take a look at some of the dramatic ways they used our rugged gorges to simulate western or Alaskan movie settings. The Wharton Studio Museum project is working to create a museum in one of the old studio buildings at Stewart Park.

Walk in the Park is a non-commercial, public access TV series shown on Ithaca, NY cable channel 13, as well as online. Walk in the Park is produced by Owl Gorge Productions, a Finger Lakes Tourism Alliance partner.

SUP Yoga on Canandaigua Lake

This all levels yoga class pairs safely aligned movement with breath work so you feel great during and after class. This is a completely different experience than yoga on your mat! No two classes will ever be the same but each will offer a mix of sweaty strengthening poses and stretching while you get lulled into relaxation by Canandaigua Lake. 

 

We provide the paddleboard. Do you want to bring your own? Save $10 by selecting bring your own board at checkout. Pre-registration is required.
