From the beginning, the strong emphasis on quality crafts was upheld by the resident craftsmen, who were jury members for the gallery. “The craftsmen had to agree that a craft belonged in the gallery,” said Dick Wissler, Frog Hollow's first resident artisan.“The intention was to keep the quality of the work at a high enough caliber such that we would eventually get a reputation for being serious purveyors of good art work.”
The jury process is different from a gallery or a commercial shop in that there is is a group jury system, and all work is seen and handled by jurors, not viewed through slides.
