Making a Mark: 6th Annual Art Exhibition & Sale
Seneca Cayuga ARC Finger Lakes Artists, Musicians, and Entertainers Center for Creative Expression hosts the 6th Annual Art Exhibition and Sale "Making a Mark” Meet & Greet the Artists First Friday, September 5th from 5-7 p.m. Reception with light refreshments. Free to enter, art is for sale & proceeds go to the artist who created the piece. Located at 39 Genesee Street Downtown Auburn, N.Y. Questions, call (315) 252-7016. Making a Mark is about enabling gifted people to celebrate self-expression and empowerment through creativity. Marks and lines are fundamental elements of art used to extend one's expressive vocabulary. Marks like building blocks, are individual and discrete, descriptive, conceptual, and symbolic in nature; can be used to render almost any visual effect. The way in which we make marks in large measure determines our personal style. Think of your own signature. The way in which you form the letters which comprise your name is a unique set of marks with legal and psychological significance. Artists refine their personal vocabulary of marks to develop their individual styles.

Volunteers: Must register online at www.fingerlakesmudrun.com. Volunteers will receive training at a team meeting in September and must sign a spectator and volunteer waiver. Details: The Finger Lakes Mud Run at Everest Park is a challenging, military-style trail run that’s intended to pit participants against one of THREE EXTREME COURSES. Yes, THREE! Each wave of participants joins a stampede of literally hundreds who’ll trudge through thick field grasses, over wooded underbrush, down and out of deep gullies, and ultimately face jaw-dropping obstacles––each designed to encourage teamwork and camaraderie. The Finger Lakes Mud Run has THREE courses in 2014! Our first is the 5K short course, which is designed for those who’re looking for a fun challenge, but aren’t quite ready for the big time! Our second course is the 14K long course that explores over 750 acres of dense forest, sun-baked fields, and terrain that even scares the wildlife! Our third course, introduced in 2013, is the ever-popular Mini Muddy. This course lets kids ages 6-12 get completely covered in mud, just like the rest of the family! The Finger Lakes Mud Run remains a volunteer-organized event that uses 100% of its net proceeds to extend the mission of Everest Park by offering a restful retreat for families of children who are experiencing life-altering health issues.
