WOODSTOCK, New York (PRWEB) August 22, 2012
The highly anticipated 10th annual Woodstock Fine Arts Auction, scheduled for September 2, will feature regional works as well as contemporary and historic pieces by internationally recognized artists. Art lovers heading to Woodstock for the event are booking Catskill vacation rentals through NYVacationRentals.com.
One of the most popular sources for quality fine art in the Northeast, this year’s Fine Arts auction has been expanded to include Pop Art, posters, artglass, textiles, and first edition American classic books in addition to pottery, silver, fine prints, sculpture, and paintings. Proceeds from the auction benefit WAAM, one of the oldest and most prestigious organizations of its kind.
The backdrop of the beautiful Catskills Mountains offers a particularly inviting venue for the event, and art buyers who descend on Woodstock each year for the auction often stay to enjoy a long weekend getaway in one of Woodstock’s Scenic Hudson Valley accommodations.
Artists and auction attendees often choose to rent a Woodstock vacation rental cabin or home for their visit for the privacy, value, and home-away-from-home comforts they get, above and beyond what a hotel room can offer. A full kitchen, laundry room, and other perks make the trip to Woodstock more enjoyable for travelers who enjoy making the most of their time in the Catskills.
A stay in any one of Woodstock’s inviting vacation lodgings offers access to some great outdoor activities, including hiking, biking, and snow sports in winter. In the fall, the magnificent foliage lures visitors and locals out to their porches with a bottle of wine and a warm sweater to take in the landscape as the sun sets over the Valley.
Each year, the WAAM presents a full schedule of concurrent solo and group exhibitions, juried and non-juried, of local artists throughout its spacious galleries.
Since1919, the Woodstock Artists Association & Museum (WAMM) has been committed to exhibiting and collecting work in all media by area artists and supporting the tradition of Woodstock as the "Colony of the Arts."
