Oliver Art Center’s annual fundraiser is an event not to be missed. The event takes place on Thursday, July 25 at 6pm at the art center in Frankfort. This year’s benefit features international cuisine by Catering by Kelly, music by Interlochen’s own Matt Cochran, and artists creating their works live during the event. Artists include Peggy Hawley, Douglas David, Lauren Everett Finn, Nancy Foster, Trish Early, Steve Kline, Mary Kay Niemiec, and Pam Spicer. Guests will stroll through the beautiful art center, located on the water, and will be able to bid on the works being created. The top three highest bids will be live auctioned later in the evening. There will also be donated work by Elizabeth Hill, LC Lim, Susan Schmidt, Carol Spaulding, and Barbara Webb up for auction as well.
Proceeds from the event benefit Oliver Art Center’s operating funds and allow the art center to implement and create programming that “works to promote and develop the visual, performing, culinary, and literary arts in Benzie County and the surrounding area.” Tickets are limited, but can be purchased by calling the office at 231-352-4151.
