Fall for Art, the Jewish Federation of Ulster County’s 17th annual fundraising art show, sale and cocktail reception, celebrates the work of 28 Hudson Valley artists working in a variety of mediums on Thursday, September 12, 2013, from 6pm to 9pm at the Wiltwyck Golf Club, Kingston, New York.
For the first time in Fall for Art’s long history, this year’s guests will have an opportunity to vote for the “best in show” artist. The chosen artist will receive a commemorative plaque by fused glass artist Sara Beames.
Each year, the Fall for Art Committee of the Jewish Federation of Ulster County donates a portion of the event’s proceeds to a Hudson Valley arts program or organization. The 2013 recipient is the “Arts with a Heart” program of the Alzheimer’s Association — Hudson Valley/Rockland/Westchester, NY Chapter. The program will take place at the Rosendale, New York Recreation Center, and will consist of the following three 1 ½-hour arts workshops for people with early stage Alzheimer’s and their caregivers: October 13th, Collage with visual artist Janet Jappen; October 27, Dance with Vanaver Caravan; and November 10th, Music with Mt. Tremper musician Melody Newcombe. The “Arts with a Heart” program will be a first of its kind in Ulster County and will be offered free of charge to participants. For more information or to register for the program, contact Michele Muir at 1 – 800-272‑3900.
