What is this Project All About?


A group of professional artists has decided to share some of their artworks with non-profit organizations that are doing good work in their home state of Vermont and beyond its borders. They donate these artworks to shelters, environmental organizations, educational institutions, and many other kinds of non-profits. We call this project EMBRACING ART because we want other people doing important work to embrace the value of art and the contribution it can make to the environment in which they work, and also because we seek to reach out and support / embrace the endeavors of others who are doing significant work that serves the public good.
To find artists whose work is available, read the Frequently Asked Questions in the righthand column and then scroll down and click on an artist to see their available work.

Maggie Neale

I've been told that I expressed myself in color before I could speak and it is still my preferred way of communication. Though I am better known for my hand woven chenille and hand painted silk, these oil paintings are my release -- my energy expressed -- they speak of movement, the dance of forms, color blending, texture, and what  lies beneath the surface.

The layers of paint, 1975 Vermont map, child's drawing and old German postcards give this painting stories and intrigue beyond its color appeal.
