Special Needs Artists Show Work At Lenz Winery

Family Residences and Essential Enterprises strives to help individuals of all abilities realize their full potential — including artistically.

Over the course of seven months, participants in the Fine Art and Art Therapy programs found their voices and tapped into a “mystical, hidden language of images and symbols” to create the body of work now on view in “Disruption” at the Lenz Winery, located at 38355 New York State Route 25 in Peconic.

“More than simply interfering with a pattern that was already in existence, ‘Disruption’ challenged our artists to create a pattern, then disrupt it and transform the old pattern into a brand new one,” according to a press release. “It looks different, feels different and is different. To be able to embrace this new pattern, old thinking and memories had to shift. What was old had to be let go of as our artists immersed themselves into the flowing river of creativity, where healing resides and has the power to rejuvenate and transform life.”

The show is comprised of a wide range of depictions of the natural frequencies of life — from an internal neurological pathway to a winding path through the forest — creating patterns on paper that display each artist’s personal reflection of their own connection to the world and their pathway to creativity.

Art therapy provides a powerful way for the artists to communicate, the press release explains, especially when they have difficultly expressing their thoughts and feelings through spoken words alone.

“While the artwork is beautiful to look at, it is important to recognize the depth of emotional release, intellectual learning and work skills development that took place over months of work with all our dedicated staff,” according to a press release. “It was their patience and unerring commitment to ‘stay the course’ and believe that our artists could reach high to not only ‘see their healing image,’ but also commit it to permanent form for all to share in their vision.”

The exhibit will remain on view through September 4, at the winery, which is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, visit
