June Exhibit: Vermont Community Blackboard
Artists Tara Goreau and Jess Polanshek will be creating Chalk Murals and images in the front of the gallery in in response to visitors input.
Frog Hollow is honored to work with the WaterWheel Foundation this July, to put together an interactive installation exhibit aimed at community involvement.
Frog Hollow shares with WaterWheel the mission of bringing community together to work as one for our future.
Posting questions on blackboards in the front of Frog Hollow the organizations invite community to respond with their insights and thoughts in a month long interactive display. Tara Goreau, local Mural Artist, will use these community writings as her guide and inspiration in the creation of chalk murals on the front wall as she interacts with community members in our gallery Friday and Saturday evenings from 4-8PM. Frog Hollow’s front wall will in essence become Tara’s temporary palate to create our community vision through Chalk Art. Every week we will be erasing the Mural and recreating a new one based on visitors thoughts on regarding community needs.
On Wednesday evenings throughout the Month Frog Hollow Artist Jess Polanshek will also be working in the front of the gallery embellishing temporary panels in the front window also in response to visitors ideas regarding community needs.

The Frog Hollow Green Mountain Artisans is an ambitious video project, undertaken to increase the exposure of established artists and artisans within the state of Vermont. The series brings recognition to our creative community and its cultural value while examining how we fit into our nation’s landscape of creative exploration. Following 2016’s successful and well received pilot episode of The Frog Hollow Green Mountain Artisans, Vermont PBS has requested several new episodes to air weekly in 2017. We have used these films as a great tool in educating the public and as an effective avenue for our artisan population to get their work seen by a larger audience.
