KINGSTON—Fall for Art, the primary community fund-raiser for the Jewish Federation of Ulster County, will note its 25th year with its 2021 juried art show and sale. The 2021 event will be from 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 23, through 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 29. This event showcases and supports the artists of the Hudson Valley.
Committee chairwoman Barbara Cohen said, “Fall for Art is grateful to the artists, sponsors and community support over the past 24 years,” Cohen said. “Our 2021 format will continue that tradition while adding more time for browsing and shopping to a larger geographic area.”
Proceeds from the silver anniversary event support Ulster Federation causes, the participating artists, and local not-for-profits including Circle of Friends for the Dying, LGBTQ, Food Bank of the Hudson Valley, Jewish Family Services, Oncology Support Program and People’s Place.
“Our 2020 participating artists, sponsors and community members who purchased art,” Cohen said, “made it possible to continue Fall for Art in this new format, and we hope to top last year’s $25,000 fund-raising total.”
The 2021 Call for Entry for artists has opened. Fall for Art offers a range of high-quality visual art representing diverse media, including ceramics, fiber, glass, jewelry, mixed-media, painting, photography, and pottery.
