Wolverine Farm Publishing and Wolverine Farm Publick House strive to be valuable resources for local makers of all kinds. In order to better serve the maker and artist community and to encourage individual artists and makers to interact with one another and build a strong network, we present the Maker in Residence (MIR) program. Every two months we select a local maker who agrees to be present and in good maker form at the Publick House throughout the term, and to perform a free, public, in-house event or workshop.

JULY + AUGUST Brie Kole
From fashion to nail art & everything in between –
All interconnected with threads of sustainability + community.
My bodies of work contract and expand, breathing into existence what I am here to do : COLLECT. CREATE. COLLABORATE. CONNECT.
Bold scrawling acrylic marks on canvas, an assault to some sensibilities.
High fashion cascading in scraps, rewarded with recognition & thought. Hands that illicit others self limitations and dazzle on anyway!
Find Brie at the residency Showcase the last week in August.
