Art is literacy of the heart.
I thought you might be interested to know that in April, Tacoma will play host to the American Mosaic Summit, a convention of 500 mosaic artists. We have world-class mosaicists coming to give talks and workshops (from Israel, Japan, Chile and many more from North America and our own Seattle-Tacoma area). There is a major mosaic exhibition, Mosaic Arts International,happening at the Museum of Glass, and another exhibit (Trans-Position: An Ancient Medium in a Contemporary World) at theINSCAPE building in Seattle from March 21 – May 24.
- I have a hand in the Mosaic Summit in a couple ways, and I invite you to take part. Northwest Mosaic Today, a group exhibit of Northwest mosaic artists at the Handforth Gallery in the Tacoma Public Library, from March 15 – April 26. I have three works in this show. I will not, however, be able to attend the artist reception on March 16, but you still might want to head over there and see the show.
- A mini-residency at the Museum of Glass on April 3 and 4 for pretty much 10 – 5: demonstrating my work and talking with tours and school groups.
- I will be attending the full convention April 9 – 14 and also participating in the vendor marketplace, selling some unique mosaic components. I’ll be staying at Bill & Judy Kelly’s (Thank you!!). I’d love to see any of you who have time that week.
