Matossian Eye Associates’ Local Artist Program exhibited two artists for Summer 2018. Cindy Ruenes’ works were presented in our Doylestown, PA office while Tisha Tinsman’s works decorated the walls in our Hopewell, NJ office. Local artists sign up to display their artwork in our reception areas for a three-month period. This offers visual interest for our patients and exposure for local artists.
As part of our Local Artist Program, a People’s Choice Award selection takes place to engage our patients with the artwork. Ballots are placed in the reception areas and patients are asked to vote for their favorite piece. After counting the votes, our patients declared “Eliana” to be the favorite of Tisha Tinsman’s’ artwork and “Summer View of the Delaware” was the winning choice of Cindy Ruenes’ pieces.

Cindy Ruenes’s Artist Statement featured on her website:
The rich artistic culture that is prevalent in Bucks County, PA and in nearby Delaware River towns in New Jersey, has inspired Cindy Ruenes to paint the beauty that surrounds her. She had always been in awe of artistic ability, but only began studying as an artist in 2000. Over the years, she has studied with several local teachers. In between classes, she paints with a group called, “The Painters’ Collective”, artists who are friends and supportive colleagues. She has painted while traveling to Monhegan Island, Maine, the Poconos and as far away as Florence, Italy and Dakar, Senegal. She creates landscape and still life paintings. Although trained as a nurse, (she works as a Health Educator, Vaccine Nurse and Screener for Corporate Health Companies) she is also heavily involved in the regional artistic scene. She helped develop and manage Neighborhood Notes, an arts outreach program affiliated with the Community Conservatory in Doylestown, PA. The program connects teen volunteer artists, musicians, actors and teaching artists with children living in impoverished communities to help bring the arts to these children. Additionally, she performs locally, singing and playing acoustic guitar and classical guitar.
