The Sundress Academy for the Arts is excited to introduce the Holler Salon, an occasional salon series featuring local and national writers and artists. An extension of our award-winning SAFTA Reading Series, Holler Salon aims to encourage conversation and collaboration between creative individuals in a variety of disciplines. Each salon will be hosted at Firefly Farms and will feature food, wine, and the opportunity to discuss ideas and inspirations in a warm, intimate setting.
Our first salon will be held from 4PM to 6PM on August 17th and feature visiting poet Laura Madeline Wiseman and local artist Chris Johnson.
