NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. – Community Missions is partnering with Wine on Third to present a showing of artwork from its Niagara Visions PROS program over the next month. The works of art, produced in the Mental Health program, will be featured from May 20-June 17 at the restaurant, with an opening reception scheduled from 5-8 p.m. on Monday, May 20.

“The work in this show is a representation of art created by people who experience mental illness,” said Sandie Crocker, Art Therapist at Niagara Visions PROS. “Producing art has brought them an escape. Many of us have experienced depression or anxiety in response to major events in our life. We realize how painful it can be.”

Niagara Visions PROS (Personalized Recovery Oriented Services) has worked with individuals living with mental illness since its founding in 2012. Located on Third Street in Niagara Falls, the showing at Wine on Third (501 Third Street, NF), is an opportunity to showcase the work done by program participants locally.

“For over 30 years as owners of Wine on Third, both the Weber and Giusiana families have been supporters of Community Missions and its many programs, said David Giusiana, co-owner of Wine on Third. “This event is just another way our families can continue to show that support.”

Niagara Visions PROS is a program of Community Missions and licensed by the New York State Office of Mental Health.   Community Missions has provided the Niagara community with a wide range of vital services since 1925. In 2018, CMI provided more than 119,000 meals and 13,000 nights of care within its crisis services programs. Additional agency programs serve adults and youth with psychiatric disabilities, parolees, at-risk youth and other underserved populations in both residential and recovery-oriented settings.
