FREE – OPEN HOUSE – ALL WELCOME- LOCAL ART
FLUID COFFEEBAR has been waiting to get this amazing local artist to show her work here! We are super excited to have her work on display, and for sale for the entire month of February. Come meet her in person, and check out her interesting and fabulous work at this opening. Here is a bit about the show, and Sophia herself.
“In Love, In Solitude”
Are you in love with someone or in love with solitude?
**** I am in love. I am in love with you. Your happiness makes me happy. Oh, what I wouldn’t do to see you smile. I can’t believe we both exist on this planet at the same time. We were meant to be together.
**** I am in love. I am in love with solitude. This silent room is full of light and heavy thoughts. They float around my head like clouds, dreams rain down. There’s so much passion, so much peace, my soul is filling up.
Sophia Rapata is a full-time artist and graduate from the American Academy of Art in Chicago. Most of her days are spent in her art studio/dungeon, located in White Ripple Gallery & Co. in Hammond, Indiana.
She paints using watercolor, ink & coffee to create creepy cute clowny creatures. Witches, cats, moons, and all things magical are her specialty. Her characters come from a sacred land buried deep within the soils of her soul. Everyday one of these characters will escape, via a doll she sews, a song she sings, a video she films or a drawing she scribbles.
Her lack of interest in socializing has turned her into an ancient cat lady, so now she just paints and sells all over the globe online. On a rare occasion you will find her in costume roaming the local art festivals. You can follow her daily adventures on Instagram @sophiarapata
