Kingston, N.Y.—Fall for Art, the primary community fundraiser for the Jewish Federation of Ulster County, will celebrate 25 years with its 2021 Juried Art Show and Sale. This event showcases and supports the talented artists of the Hudson Valley.
Fall for Art committee chair Barbara Cohen said that Fall for Art is thrilled to be marking 25 years of supporting artists and the community.
“Fall for Art is grateful to the artists, sponsors and community support over the past twenty-four years,” Cohen said. “Our 2021 format will continue that tradition while adding more time for browsing and shopping to a larger geographic area.”
The 2021 event will be held from 7 pm Saturday, Oct. 23, through 5 pm Friday, Oct. 29. Last year, the Fall for Art Committee, Sara Beames, Barbara Cohen, Sloane Grubard, Louise Lefkovits, Darlene Levit and Sue Worthman orchestrated the event virtually with support from Kingston’s Mike Rice, website designer, and graphic designer Supattra Samanyaphon, who will also return to Fall for Art 2021’s team at fallforart.org.
Proceeds from this silver anniversary event support 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 fundraising total.”
The 2021 Call for Entry for artists has opened. Fall for Art offers a wide range of high-quality visual art representing diverse media, including ceramics, fiber, glass, jewelry, mixed-media, painting, photography, and pottery.
