The exhibition, which coincides with “Recovery Month” and “Wellness Week,” will clearly demonstrate that recipients of mental health services have embraced the concept of hope and are willing to share their view of recovery.
VISIONS 2015: Inspirations, Reflections, & Hope is free and open to the public and will be held at ArtWestchester’s Shenkman Gallery. he opening reception will be held this Thursday, September 10th from 5:30-7:00pm and the exhibit will run from Friday, September 11th – Thursday, September 17th from 12-5pm (Closed on Sunday and Monday).

During the reception, Fazzino’s staff will be on hand to conduct an interactive art workshop. All those attending are encouraged to participate. The final piece will be sold with all of the proceeds benefiting the participating mental health agencies.
Fifty of the works, which will all be available for sale, will come from participants in the weekly Art Groups run by CHOICE of NY. CHOICE is a local mental health advocacy and case management agency we support and have worked with for several years. They will, in fact, be exhibiting there work again in our studios during this year’s New Rochelle ArtsFest. For the past two years, we have hosted an art show called EXPRESSIONS, featuring their works. This year, we’ve incorporate that exhibition into VISIONS 2015.
These art groups have become a vital part of the services CHOICE provides, and a powerful tool for clients who are struggling to express themselves and understand their own emotional challenges. The artists’ varied and diverse life experiences bring unique perspectives to their creative efforts and subject matter, with styles ranging from the realistic to the abstract. Their works are very meaningful and you will bemoved if you come to the opening reception. It’s a victory celebration of sorts and we’d love for you to be a part of it.
RSVP is not required but would be greatly appreciated. Please email Choice at firstname.lastname@example.org .
