In 2009 Kolb was one of ten artists selected from over 300 applicants to be part of the ART OF ACTION, a unique public/private project to create and exhibit work addressing issues we face in the future in the state of Vermont.  Vermont Life magazine featured an article about her paintings of the logging industry in their winter 2009-2010 issue. 

In 2008 the Vermont Community Foundation awarded her a grant for work on a series of paintings of icebergs made to draw attention to climate change.  A feature article about her work appeared in the September 2007 issue of American Artist magazine. 

Her painting Dawn Loading was published in FREEDOM AND UNITY: A HISTORY OF VERMONT by Sherman, Sessions and Potash in 2004. In 2002 she was one of ten artists invited to create work for THE IMAGE OF VERMONT AGRICULTURE, an exhibit that traveled to eight Vermont towns. 

In 1999 one of Kolbís paintings was included in John Driscollís book The Artists and the American Landscape.  Her large painting Bristol Sawmill was accepted in the 173rd Annual Exhibition and won the Paton Prize for watercolor in 1998 at the National Academy of Design.
