March Exhibit: Bits & Pieces by Warren Kimble
“No cows, no pigs, no houses, no chickens!” was Warren Kimble’s statement regarding his new work being presents at Frog Hollow for the month of March.
Known as one of America’s foremost contemporary folk artists, these words may come as a surprise to some. Nationally recognized for his Americana images evoking a simpler and less complicated time featuring exactly the contents he is exiling from his new work, Warren Kimble in recent years has chosen to venture into new artistic horizons, most notably in his explorations into abstract paintings. Beginning with his “Widows of War” and “Let the Sun Shine” series of paintings Warren Kimble has again embraced his constant artistic evolution, switching his attentions to more found object assemblages, combining his new abstract vision with a sense of his folk art foundations. The end result is a new direction in folk art that is 100% Warren Kimble with new pieces moving more towards contemporary modern art all the while following new black and white trends in home décor.
Bold, strong and architectural in design the new work will fill the back gallery space in Frog Hollow for the entire month of March. An opening/ meet the artist event will be held Friday, March 3rd from 5-8PM.

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.
