Izaya Colson INDOORS SHOW + RECEPTION 5pm – 8pm
Visit Lily’s not just for their wonderful cuisine but to see their large wall mural depicting the city of Guazapa where the owner, Lily, grew up. Below is the description of the art murals:
The inspiration for this painting was to replicate a peaceful, small city in El Salvador, called “GUAZAPA”. Lily, owner of “LILY’S SALVADOREAN RESTAURANT”, was raised in Guazapa before moving to USA in 2004 and then to Seattle in 2007. One of the first and most important things to notice is the woman in the lead. She is wearing a blue and white dress to represent the El Salvador flag. In the center of the painting is the lifeline river “RIO GUAZAPA”. A river like this is where Lily’s family would wash clothes and bathe. The yellow flowers in each corner of the painting are the national flower, called “FLOR DE IZOTE”. Unlike flowers which face up, these face down, almost as if they are relaxing. They vary in color from vibrant yellow to soft off white. One the far right, you will see the national bird El Salvador, called “TOROGOZ”. Lily recalls how the birds would sometimes peck at her window, which she found humorous. She felt a friendly connection the the birds, as if they were very aware of each other’s presence.
Look closely at the mountain in the background, you might see the “sleeping lady”. This mountain view is only visible from some angles. When the civil war started in 1979, the fighting was fierce in Suchitoto on the other side of the mountain. Many people fled Suchitoto for the safety of Guazapa.
The painting took ten full days of hard work to realize, from building the frames, painting and installation. Izaya’s intention is for the viewer to feel as if they are stepping into Lily’s world, to experience where she’s from and the things that made her happy. This captures the place where Lily learned about herself and shaped how she relates to the community, family, food, and her culture.
Learn more about Lily’s Salvadorean Restaurant at their Instagram and Facebook pages.

Soprano’s is pleased to welcome Muse Fest musicians, SAPPHIRE CITY
SAPPHIRE CITY is producer/multi-instrumentalist Theresa Ambat and singer-songwriter Rosario Araceli. This Seattle-based alternative pop/RnB duo began as two friends writing music remotely during the pandemic and are now set to release their first EP sometime in 2023. SAPPHIRE CITY has only just made their stage debut but is already making huge waves in the local scene, having performed with artists such as Seiichi and Rocky Sandoval. The two lifelong musicians have found freedom in taking large departures, both sonically and lyrically, from their usual works. As Rosario pushes the boundaries of her songwriting to unapologetically provocative lyricism and Ariana Grande-esque vocal layering, Theresa ventures into larger-than-life pop production, lush with ear-catching instruments and glittering embellishments to house her RnB reminiscent chords. In this process, SAPPHIRE CITY has sharpened their craft with sleek aesthetics while refusing to compromise the vulnerability that drew them to music in the first place.

My artworks are created through a process of mark making, layering and experimentation. The result is a minimalist palette that combines colors and bold marks to express emotion and moods, such as calmness, peacefulness, urgency, or anger. I am currently pursuing my Masters of Fine Arts through Emily Carr University with a focus on invisible domestic labour and gender roles

She certainly has no fear of exploring new genres and material but seems to always find a home back with her piano and voice. Even if it’s just for a moment to breathe between her other projects. Some of Katrina’s performances and compositions can be heard in: Purr Gato, ELYXR, The Blood Moon Orchestra, Good Co, Levels of Movement, Marmalade and of course, as Katrina Kope solo using Ableton, synths, and vocal effects. Check out her latest single “Above and Beyond” – here on Bandcamp.
