“Every painting tells a story of not only a moment in nature and time, but also of our own transition and change.”

Welcome to Frog's Leap Gallery. Carol Perron Sommerfield is an award winning representational artist who works primarily in oil, acrylic, and pastels. Her paintings are in private collections across the U.S., Europe, and Canada.   .

Carol Sommerfield’s  paintings capture the mood of the subject - whether it be the time of day, the glory of being alone in the woods, or the quiet moments with a still life. In addition they also say something about our lives and our own transformation over time. 

Thanks for coming and enjoy your visit to Frog’s Leap Gallery.

Welcome to Frog's Leap Gallery

Lot's going on during the first half of the year! 

 One of my paintings was juried into a January show, Cold, at the National Association of Women Arts gallery in New York, NY.   
In February I am proud to be participating in a group show along with some of my favorite Rivertowns artists at the Donald Gallery in Dobbs Ferry.

We Are Rising: Women In Solidarity
February 5 - March 19, 2017
Free public opening reception: Sunday, February 5, 2017 from 11 am - 2 pm

The show is is part of South Presbyterian Church's support of International V-DAY and its 3rd annual reading of the Vagina Monologues on February 11. Proceeds from the show will benefit Hope's Door - an organization that helps victims of domestic abuse. If the painting sells I will donate my proceeds to Hope's Door. 

I am one of 300 accepted national artists to be featured in Studio Visit Magazine's Summer, 2017 edition. I've been trying to get into this juried national magazine for a couple of years - one reject letter after another. On a lark I tried one more time.  Finally! Thanks to Tutto Rosso Crushed # 1 the juror said 'yes'.
I'll be returning to Drop, Forge and Tool for a March 2017 artist residency.  Looking forward to a week totally dedicated to 24X7 art and creation.

I'll be in my first juried museum show in March at the Belskie Museum of Art & Science in Closter, NJ.  Four of my paintings were juried into the show and two will be exhibited as part of: Personal Renaissance, March 5 - March 26.  Opening on March 5 from 1 - 5

The Rivertowns Studio Tour 2017 will be on April 22 & 23, 11 am - 5 pm each day. Come see me in the studio, chat, eat, drink and enjoy the art and gardens!
