What is Les Petits?

Les Petits is a fundraiser developed to support the Finger Lakes Plein Air Festival and their scholarships. The artists come from our community and beyond. Anyone is able to donate a piece of artwork. There is no entrance fee. We have had works come from schools, community organizations, juried plein air artists, local artists, art patrons and more. Join the fun by donating a piece of your artwork!


  • Open to all kinds of art — be creative & unique!
  • Artwork will be donated to this event*
  • Artwork must be personally designed and hand-crafted
  • Artwork must be mounted so it can be hung (must provide a method to hang the artwork on a wall)

During the Springtime in Canandaigua Show, the community can vote for their favorite art pieces displayed at the Plein Air/Les Petits booth by purchasing tickets for the drawing of each. At the end of the show (Sunday afternoon April 28 at 4:00) at the Plein Air booth, the art will be distributed via a drawing for each piece of art from the tickets sold for that item. All proceeds benefit the Finger Lakes Plein Air Festival.

  • Available on site at the Plein Air/Les Petits Booth to purchase

Drawing winners will be notified by phone if not present. Art can be picked up at the Pat Rini Rohrer Gallery for 1 week following the drawing. After 1 week any unclaimed art will be returned to the artist or donated.
