Mental Health and Wellness Open House and Art Show
Tuesday, May 09, 2017
UR Medicine | Noyes Health’s Mental Health and Wellness team invites the community to an Open House and Art Show on Wednesday, May 17th from 5 to 7 p.m. at their new building, 9221 Robert Hart Drive in Dansville.
Art work in a variety of media created by Noyes clients and staff around the theme “Art is Healing!” will be on display. There will be fun and interactive family activities and refreshments, including ice cream donated by Byrne Dairy. The event is free and open to the public.
“Sometimes it’s hard to explain in words how you’re feeling,” explains Lynette Greene, Noyes Mental Health and Wellness manager. “Our two art therapists help their clients express themselves in a different way, and we’re delighted to be able to show off the amazing work they’ve done.”
Noyes's more than two dozen mental health professionals collaborate with patients, their families, and the community to support wellness and recovery, and to make a profound difference in the lives of area residents-those struggling with life's everyday challenges, as well as those with severe and persistent mental illness. Services offered include individual, group and family therapy for adults, children, and families in a friendly and open atmosphere.
UR Medicine | Noyes Health art therapist Diane Stratton-Smith works with client Peggy Oltz on a collage of cut-paper photographs from magazines and catalogs, glued in layers to postcard-sized cardboard and laminated. Ms. Oltz’s work will be among the dozens of art works on display at the UR Medicine | Noyes Health Open House and Art Show on Wednesday, May 17 from 5-7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
