Twenty-six Hudson Valley artists will gather at Wiltwyck Golf Club to discuss their creative processes, drink cocktails, and sell their wares at this 19th annual fundraiser for the Jewish Federation of Ulster County. "Art helps sustain you," says Barbara Cohen, chair of the event. A myriad of media will be featured, such as: ceramic, fused glass, jewelry, photography, watercolor, and more. Proceeds benefit local nonprofit organizations, including the Hudson Valley Food Bank, Family of Woodstock, CASA, People's Place, Angel Food East, and Jewish Family Services. As the 2015 special recipient, HealthAlliance of the Hudson Valley Mental Health Services will select $1,000 worth of art from the show to display in their Kingston facility. "The Fall for Art event introduces the community to some of its best local artists," says Mira Fink, a participant featuring her watercolor works. The 19th Annual Fall for Art will take place from 6 to 9pm on Thursday, September 10, at Wiltwyck Golf Club in Kingston. General admission tickets are $45 in advance and $50 at the door.
