  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) August 29, 2013 - This weekend 8/31, 9/1, & 9/2 , Labor Day weekend, is the 32nd Anniversary of the Woodstock-New Paltz Art & Crafts Fair. This year's fall show will include an exciting addition to the Fiber Arts exhibiting at the Fair. KELLOGG'S ALPACAS of Scio, New York will bring several of their award winning Alpacas to the fair.

    Over the past 32 years, the WOODSTOCK-NEW PALTZ ART & CRAFTS FAIR has emerged as a major east coast venue for high quality juried art and craft work, all represented by the artists themselves. It has also been well acknowledged as a show where one can view a wide variety of demonstrations

    This fall, the fair will add an additional twist to its usual array of demos. We are collaborating with the CATSKILL MOUNTAIN ARTISANS GUILD to give the visiting fair goers a hands on opportunity to experience many of the media categories represented at the show. The demonstrations will include wood turning, weaving, fused glass making, spinning, woodworking, printmaking and more. There will also be separate demonstrations for children of all ages.

    Scott Rubinstein (co-director of the fairs with his brother Neil): "the Catskill Mountain Artisans Guild, of Margaretville, New York, is one of the most successful guild stores in the Northeast. They screen their artists and craftspeople very carefully. The gallery-store is laid out elegantly with the artists themselves manning the store. It's a great honor to have them onboard for the fair and we are confident this is just the beginning of an exciting venue for our shows."

    The Fair takes place Saturday, August 31, 10am-6pm, Sunday, September 1, 10am-6pm and Monday, September 2, 10am-4pm at the Ulster County Fairground, 249 Libertyville Road, New Paltz, NY 12561, NYS Thruway Exit 18. Admission price is Adults, $8.00, Seniors, $7.00 and Children 12 & under FREE.
