CBA Vision Rehabilitation Services will be holding an art auction on Thursday, November 17 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on its Facebook page, @CBAVisionRehabilitationServices.
“We hope anyone interested in local art and artists and supporting the ABC’s mission will register and bid. It’s a very simple process and you can do it from the comfort of your home, office, smartphone or computer,” said Megan Maynard, Chair of the CBA’s Vision Rehabilitation Services Board.
The auction will feature approximately 25 pieces, ranging from paintings to three-dimensional art – there’s something for everyone. Some of the pieces are created by people living with disabilities, others are created by accomplished artists from our local community and friends of ABC Vision Rehabilitation Services.

“You can support our youth vision screening program and add a work of art to your life”, said Joni Blackman, Executive Director. “The youth vision screening program visits most classrooms, preschools, kindergarten, homeschools and daycares in Chautauqua and Cattaraugus counties. Staff examined more than 4,400 children last year, more than 800 of whom required a visit to an eye care professional. This auction will help us keep the program going.
Auction items will be posted one week prior to the event. For more information, call Blackman at 716-664-6660 or email [email protected]
