What do you get when you combine quirky and fun with an infusion of color?

A trendy trio of artists who infuse both humor and exceptional creativity in their art. The return of the popular exhibit Caffeinated Art will have its grandee revival on Thursday, April 2, 2015 from 4:30 until 6:30 p.m. at The Green Room Cafe in Hendersonville. The event will feature a cash bar for beer, wine, and coffee drinks, along with artisan crafted appetizers created by hosts Ben and Sue Green, and Chef Nicholas DeSorbo.

After the show, celebrate The Green Room’s newly remodeled space at a reservation-only dinner. They will present their signature spring dinner menu, featuring scrumptious food made fresh from local ingredients. Call (828) 692-6335 to reserve your table.

Sandee Setliff, a mixed media artist, creates from the inside out, letting her imagination run free. Setliff takes familiar objects and arranges them into whimsical layered pieces. She works with both traditional and innovative techniques, incorporating current trends into her art such as beading and hand sewing, boldly mixing acrylics with inks and gelatos.

Always trying to depict a positive message with words and sometimes quotes, you will quite often find the written word somewhere on her canvases. Her unique collection of artwork, titled “Liquid Wisdom,” spans the world of fantasy and reality, flavored with coffee, tea cups, and quotes.

Color, pattern, stories, and emotion all contribute to Miriam Hughes love of creating art. Lately Miriam has been creating and showing work in mediums and styles that excite her sense of design and color, often with unexpected results. While well known for creating canine portraits in pastel, she has begun working with new mediums and substrates. Miriam says, “I feel more exposed as an artist because my mediums of choice for this show are fairly new to me, but it energizes me knowing I can only get better.”

For Jamie Miller, art, literature, and water have always been a solace. They have been friends never abandoned, the family that always encouraged, and the mentors that continually challenged. In college she discovered painting and, thusly, found her niche. She’s always been a dreamer, a wanderer, and to quote a friend a “bohemian mermaid,” which are all aspects you can find in her works. She thinks it makes perfect sense, for “art is meant to expose the soul.”

The Green Room Café specializes in artisan crafted scrumptious food made fresh from local ingredients. They offer premium beer and wine, Fair Trade locally roasted primo espresso and coffees, and an assortment of loose-leaf teas. Pop in for an ice cold beer or a glass of wine paired with one of their delicious appetizers, or a primo coffee drink paired with homemade desserts.
