Mosaic art is an ancient art form that is becoming more and more popular in our time. Mosaic is part sculpture and part painting using hundreds of small pieces put together to create a whole image. Many mosaic artists describe the deliberative process that is mosaic, as meditative and joyful.

Artists in the exhibit are Barbara Bix, John Fansmith, Barbie Henig, Susan Kelly, April Press, Carol Shelkin, Laura Lyn Stern and Carol Stirton-Broad. Their work covers a broad range of styles and subjects, size and materials from Italian smalti, stained glass, broken plates, marble, stone, minerals, gems, millefiori, clay tiles and even polymer clay.
