We have been partnering with Serenbe and the Art Farm for over two years now. We enjoy being able to provide a 4-course meal each month as guest gather to discuss the arts, and hear from amazing artists. As we kick-off 2018 we look forward to continuing being part of Art Over Dinner. If you haven't experienced one of these gatherings (or visited Serenbe for that matter), sign up today!
Several months ago we had the honor to sit down with Joey Thompson of Atlanta Makers and filmmaker extraordinaire, Nathan Cheuvront share why we do what we do. And yes, as you can see this was in our home with our little man running around...real life folks!
Joey's mission with Atlanta Makers is to connect the people of Atlanta with their local craftsmen and craftswoman.
Be sure to visit the Atlanta Maker website to view videos of other local makers, like our good friend and extremely talented calligrapher + printer, Ashley Buzzy McHugh.
Follow the Atlanta Makers instagram feed to stay in the know of new content and featured makers.
This summer we have enjoying partnering with Serenbe and cooking at several of Art Over Dinner evenings. It's a great opportunity to visit Serenbe, meet new folks, hear about the work of artist, Jill Frank, and eat a delicious, seasonal meal.
THE NEXT DINNER GATHERING IS COMING UP on SUNDAY, AUGUST 9.
Be sure to view the gallery from our first event as captured by the talented Jessica Ashley.
Art Over Dinner Presented by Lexus:
An evening with Jill Frank and Atlanta Contemporary

Her work has shown nationally and internationally, and selected solo exhibitions include Contemporary Art, Chicago; Golden Gallery, Chicago; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago.

It's no secret we love collaborating and supporting local Atlanta businesses and entrepreneurs. The opportunity to provide a meal for a workshop or retreat is always a special treat. At one of Erica Loesing's calligraphy workshops Chef Jason served up a fresh lunch spread. You can find more behinds the scenes photos and details as the class was featured on Style Me Pretty.

PS- There is still time to order a copy for holiday gifting. You have until Friday.
Who doesn't dream of a holiday getaway at a secluded cabin?!? We had so much fun working with Mandy of Waiting on Martha to create this wholesome meal for the dreamy festive affair she put together.
Head on over to page 102 of Rue Magazine's holiday issue. You can also find all the recipes for the meal. Start that Christmas Dinner planning!
