We thank the following individuals and organizations for their valuable assistance in making Frogwood successful:
Andy Johnson Laird and Kay Kitagawa for their generous financial support;
Barbara Mason for funding the creation of a Printmaking area at Frogwood and sponsoring two participants in the field;
East/West, the Hammered Metal Object Show Committee for their grant of funds;
Greg Wilbur, Master metal smith, who has been a strong supporter and active participant in Frogwood since the beginning;
Mary Burgess, artist in watercolors, for giving us permission to use her delightful watercolor Leaf Hopper as our Frogwood icon. The ubiquitous Pacific Chorus Frog, pictured here sitting on a floating Bigleaf maple leaf, was the inspiration for the name Frogwood;
Dale Larsen, for many years of event support.
This year’s Frogwood Committee — Michael deForest, Mike Free, Carol Horvath, Owen Lowe, Carole Murphy, Marjin Wall, Greg Wilbur, David Williams, Tom Willing, — for their energy, enthusiasm, and organizational skills in planning for the upcoming collaboration, as well as taking on the effort necessary to forge Frogwood into a non-profit educational entity;
Members of the Pacific Northwest Woodturning Guild, who first envisioned holding a multi-media collaborative gathering in 2007, and who have planned, organized, and hosted this event every year since. Their success is evidenced by the growing number of repeat attendees, both local and international.
