Frog Hollow is a nonprofit organization and we support our Vermont artists in many ways: showing their work in our gallery on Church Street in Burlington, curating statewide traveling exhibits, providing professional opportunities for group exhibits, offering presentations by master craftspeople, and even sending aid to artisans crippled by disasters like the flooding during Hurricane Irene.
Some of Frog Hollow’s recent projects to support artisans and craftsmanship in Vermont have included the following:
A number of films for PBS highlighting Vermont artisans showcasing the diversity of work being created across the landscape of Vermont.
A trailer—an Art Cart—outfitted to show an artisan at work is situated outside the Gallery on Church Street during many weekends in summer and fall. Here, Frog Hollow artisans demonstrate their crafts, such as glass blowing, clay sculpture, metalwork, and weaving.
AID TO ARTIST
A silent auction and craft sale raised over $15,000 for Vermont Artisan Stacie Mincher who was incapacitated in early 2016 by a major stroke accidentally inflicted during brain tumor removal surgery.
Extraordinary exhibitions and public lectures have featured weaving, nontraditionally made prints, and the use of fly tying as art therapy for disabled veterans, to name just a few examples.
