Vicky Brown of Little Brown Farm in Freeland wants to give a shout out to the Froggwell Art Show and a couple of its generous artists who helped the goat farm to meet its goal in a recent Kickstarter campaign.
Brown, “Chief Milkmaid” of the cheese-making operation, initiated the campaign in order to provide tours, classes and a new cheese cave at the farm in order to reach out to the community with a hands-on education.
“We want to grow,” Brown said.
“We want to build a cheese cave, add cheesemaking classes and a farm store at the Little Brown Farm. It actually is just one micro-creamery construction project, with three distinct impacts,” she added.
Artist Anne Belov and organizer of the Froggwell Biennale show, which opens in Freeland today, offered her editorial skills during the campaign, as well as an original cartoon from her series titled “ Your Brain on Pandas.”
This is the first cartoon of the series that has left the artist’s personal collection.
Froggwell sculptor Sue Taves also contributed the farm’s project with her donation of a bronze sculpture, titled “She Decides” to the rewards.
The Froggwell Biennale is from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. today through Sunday, Aug. 5 at 5508 Double Bluff Road (on the east side of Highway 525 heading north.) This unique art show of the work of 12 artists takes place at a private island home and its extraordinary Froggwell Gardens near Double Bluff in Freeland.
Artists include Anne Belov, Buffy Cribbs, Gail Gwinn, Teresa Saia, Sue Taves, Al Tennant, Bruce Morrow, Briony Morrow-Cribbs, Suzanne Schlicke, Sharon Spencer, Linnane Armstrong and Marianne Brabanski.
