About The Annual Children’s Art Contest hosted by Frogs Are Green: Since 2009, Frogs Are Green has inspired and engaged children around the world to learn about frogs and amphibians and express themselves through art. Children enter the annual contest with drawings, paintings, sculpture, collage and other mediums. Entries have come in by the hundreds and from more than 27 countries. In 2013, some 450 entries were uploaded to the 2013 Frogs Are Green Kids’ art contest on Flickr.
About The Distillery and Artspace in Jersey City, NJ: Operated by Kristin J. DeAngelis and Gabriel Rueda Pacheco, The Distillery Gallery is located in a diverse neighborhood on the edge of the Palisades Cliffs. The Distillery is founded on the belief that it’s important to recognize and support innovative artists at all career stages. The Distillery was founded to fulfill three basic needs in the Jersey City artist community.
- The need for a secure, professional space for art exhibitions that promotes and brokers sales for local and regional artists.
- The need for thoughtful and innovatively curated shows that encourage community dialogue and include a wide range of artists from all disciplines.
- The need to galvanize the artistic and local communities through public programs, educational outreach, and discussions of creative processes and key arts business issues.
