The Ulster County SPCA is proud to present Artists for Animals!
This new project will merge the animal community with the growing art community in the Hudson Valley. The UCSPCA will be working closely with local artists, allowing them to display their work around the shelter for one month. All artwork will be up for sale, and a percentage of the proceeds will benefit the shelter!
For the month of May, we would like to welcome Linda Lynton from Woodstock, NY! Her paintings will be featured for purchase throughout the shelter, from Saturday April 29th-Wednesday May 31st. 40% of the proceeds will go directly to our shelter!
The Opening Reception Potluck will take place Thursday May 4th, from 5-7pm. Admission is free. Come on out and bring a vegetarian dish! Potluck will be located at the shelter, 20 Wiedy Road in Kingston NY.
A little bit about the artist:
Linda Lynton is a British born artist now living in Woodstock after an urban career as writer and editor in New York City. She returned to her first love, art, in 2013, focusing on plein air and studio works in oils and ink drawings of the natural world in the Hudson Valley. Her deep respect for nature and wild places began early, with childhood visits to local forests and coastlines that later expanded to hiking the Himalayas and exploring remote locations in the Near East and South Asia, which have all influenced her work: Her use of color comes from India with its vibrant tropical palette, her fascination with the detailed use of line from Persian miniatures. She has lived with animals all her life and feels it is essential to keep all nonhuman beings alive, healthy and happy, in the wild and at home, so is proud to make this contribution to the UCSPCA.
