Tickets are now available for Summer Mosaic 2018! – This is the project of 50 paintings of NY waterfalls that I am currently feverishly working on completing.
What is Summer Mosaic?
Artists throughout the region create 50 small works (6” x 6”) using a single medium throughout the 50-piece series, in response to a theme of their choice. The exhibition is part of 171 Cedar Arts Center’s summer fundraiser. This is a great time to start, or expand, your collections while supporting local artists and 171!
171 Cedar Arts is a non-profit organization based in Corning, New York that enriches the community through arts instruction, exhibiting today’s artists, and presenting live performances. They offer classes in a variety of art forms – music, dance, visual arts, ceramics, culinary arts, language and more – for people of all ages and skill levels.
This year’s Summer Mosaic includes 31 artists and 1,500 small artworks.

Options for Those Unable to Attend
While I would love to see you all there at the events, I understand that sometimes that may not be possible. Luckily 171 has thought of you and has given an option for anyone that may want to purchase art from this series from throughout the corners of the country.
PURCHASES BY NON-ATTENDEES:
I love that you’ve been following along in my journey and are interested in adding waterfalls painted by me to your collection! You will need to follow the below steps in order to make sure that you are able to purchase your desired paintings (they start selling fast once 5:30 hits during the VIP event!).
Step 1 – Purchase a $70 ticket for the VIP Reception via link above or by contacting 171 Cedar Arts via phone at (607)936-4647 with credit card number in advance of July 19 (non-refundable).
Step 2 – Send Lynn Rhoda Dates the title and picture of the artwork(s) you want to purchase. THIS IS IMPORTANT because staff will pull these specific art selections off the wall at 5:30 PM when VIP Reception sales begin, no earlier.
Step 3 – Get excited! 171 is able to ship the paintings to you (shipping costs will apply), if local you can pick up at a later date, or have a friend pick up and deliver your purchases!
As the event gets closer I will be sharing more information! In the meantime, are you on my newsletter and following me over on Facebook or Instagram? Yesterday I painted Painting 16 live and answered questions on Instagram and shared a timelapse video on both platforms. Check it out!
