Cabin Fever Artist Talk Series are BACK!

February 17, 2017, Frankfort, Michigan

For the third year in a row, Oliver Art Center will be presenting its Cabin Fever Artist Talk Series in conjunction with the annual Furniture, Fiber, Photography and Sculpture Exhibition which opened January 20. Every year, four artists are invited to speak on their art work which is featured during the exhibition. “The Cabin Fever Artist Talk Series has been very well-attended so far this year and we still have two fantastic talks coming up” says Mercedes Michalowski, Executive Director.

The series will wrap up with local fiber artist, Holly Sorensen. Holly Sorensen’s fascination with fiber began in her childhood, while playing in the old woolen mill her family operated in Connecticut. “The colorful webs of yarn, noisy clanking looms, and rich smell of lanolin were magic to me,” she says. After graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design with a B.F.A. in graphic design, she worked for Glen of Michigan in New York and later illustrated children’s stories for a computerized reading program at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California. Holly presently has her studio in Empire, Michigan, where she finds inspiration for her fiber art in the soft palette of the local landscape. Her work has been shown at several area galleries. Holly will speak Friday, February 17 at 5:30pm.

All of the Cabin Fever Artist lectures are free and open to the public.
