Ephemera Dinner & Art
Food inspired by the Art of Sophia Hanna
Visual and culinary arts come together in celebration of Arts Month 2021 with an invitation from Ephemera to explore the personal and intimate paintings of Sophia Hanna, paired with a specialty multi-course dinner designed to highlight the colors, textures, and concepts of her artwork.
On Friday, October 1st, there will be a limited number of tickets available for two dinner seatings: 5:00-7:00PM and 7:30-9:30PM. Guests are encouraged to arrive early to enjoy the art, and chat with the artist and exhibition curator.
Ephemera began as a series of multi-sensory Pop-Up Dinners in early 2018 by Chefs Ian Dedrickson and Adam Ridens, and Creative Director Jasmine Dillavou. The passion project quickly evolved into a regular series of themed dinners held in locations varying from restaurants, to friends’ apartments, to Colorado Springs-area farms, and has now progressed to the next step of a brick-and-mortar location, upstairs in the beautiful CO.A.T.I. building in the New South End of downtown Colorado Springs (514 South Tejon Street, #250A).
About the Artist
Sophia Hanna, 21, has grown up immersed in the arts community of Colorado Springs. Some of her first pieces debuted in the SPQR and Modbo Small Works show when she was eleven. She has sold numerous works and commissions from the age of twelve, diving wholeheartedly into her first oil painting class in 2017, exhibiting her first solo oil show the following year. Her most recent full body of work was for a joint oil show at local gallery SPQR in 2019, and in 2020 she was honored to participate in the Gratitude show at the Kreuser Gallery. She is currently focusing on her mental health and has been experimenting with integrating that journey into more honest art. Sophia most often paints figurative oil paintings leaning towards magical realism. She particularly likes to make “weird” art. You know it when you see it.
