Katie Troyer is one of the most beloved personalities in the Pinecraft community. She grew up in an Amish family in Ohio, and after living in various Amish communities in the U.S. and Canada, she moved to Pinecraft in 2008.
Having been born a “little person,” (a term she often uses), she found Pinecraft to be a welcoming community where she is accepted and valued.
One of the roles she plays here is that of an unofficial photographer. Through her photographs, which she collects on an annual calendar, and on her popular Instagram @pinecraftsquirrel, Katie shows her perspective on the daily life of the Amish and Mennonite community in Sarasota. This photographic exhibition shows Katie’s unique perspective on the daily life of the Amish community in Pinecraft.
The exhibit is open Monday through Friday through all of March.
