In addition to supporting local programs of the Jewish Federation of Ulster County, Fall for Art continues its tradition of selecting a local organization each year to receive our “Special Recipient” gift of $1,000 worth of artwork from the event for permanent display at their facility, thereby benefiting the participating artist(s) as well.


The Ulster County SPCA will be invited to select $1,000 worth of art from the show to be permanently exhibited at their facility at 20 Wiedy Road in Kingston, NY. The Ulster County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is a private, nonprofit organization that has been serving its namesake county since 1891. Our mission is to prevent cruelty to animals by providing temporary shelter and finding adoptive homes for homeless, abused and neglected animals; conducting cruelty investigations; eliminating the crisis of homeless animals by providing low-cost spay/neuter services for cats and dogs and by spaying or neutering all animals offered for adoption; providing humane education and by working to improve laws to end animal cruelty.
