This May, the Green Mountain Project Healing Waters program has teamed up with Frog Hollow for a fly-fishing themed exhibition at their gallery on Church St. in Burlington, VT.
For the month of May, Frog Hollow will display an array of fly fishing themed artwork, fly fishing flies tied by local Veterans and various fly fishing paraphernalia. The exhibition is an effort to bring attention to the work of the Green Mountain Chapter of Project Healing Waters, an organization dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of disabled active military service personnel and disabled veterans through fly fishing and associated activities including education and outings.
Opening the first Friday of the month, May 6th from 5-8pm, we will have tastings provided by Mad River Distillers as well as live fly tying demonstrations in the gallery.
Vermont artists represented in the exhibit are watercolorists Kevin Ruelle, Samantha Aronson and Nick Mayers, wood worker Rachel Laundon, photographer Peter Miller, and metal worker Payne Junker. As part of the fundraising effort, there will be a silent auction featuring artwork donated by a selection of artists, as well as fly fishing gear and fly tying tools, with 100% of auction proceeds going to the Vermont chapter of Project Healing Waters.
The auction will be open from Monday May, 2 through Thursday May, 26 when there will be an auction closing event with 14th Star Brewery, which will be offering samples and full pours of their Valor Ale in a specially designed can–released earlier in May–also in support of Project Healing Waters, with 100% of sales of this can going towards Project Healing Waters.
