Daring designs and the magic of clay and fire combine in a head-turning ornamental vision during the Mosaic Arts International 2008 exhibit at the Bakehouse Art Complex. Sponsored by the Society of American Mosaic Artists (SAMA), the juried event features 64 stunning pieces selected from 372 entries by artists from six countries. The show represents some of the top-shelf talent working in the medium today.
This exhibition showcases the incredible diversity of artists working in traditional and contemporary materials. Our members continue to push the envelope with textures, colors, and forms, conveying the mastery that is rising in our international community of mosaic artists, says Karen Ami, the organizations president. Luciana Notturni, founder of Ravenna Italys Mosaic Art School and a mosaic conservator in one of the classical worlds centers of the form, served as a juror for the show. This exhibition will inspire gallery-goers as they discover the tactile innovation of contemporary mosaic art, Ami says. It runs through April 30.
