About this event

3 - 24 September 2021

SA Mosaics

Launch and Announcement of Prizes: Friday 3 September 6 pmBookings essential. Tickets are limited and must be presented on entry to comply with social distancing requirements.

For anyone unsure what a mosaic is, it is a work of art whose surface is composed of individually cut pieces of material (tesserae) that come together to create a homogeneous design.

Mosaics are one of the oldest art forms in the world with some mosaics still being made with similar techniques as those made 2,000 years ago. They are still present in day-to-day life – in and on public buildings, wall murals, bird baths, in galleries and as custom made commissions. Mosaics are very durable and lasting artworks, and can be displayed indoors as well as outdoors depending on materials used.

Creating mosaics is growing in popularity, and in this exhibition you are able to see just how broad and creative an artform it is. Whether using treasured pieces of broken crockery, bits and bobs picked up on holidays, tiles, metal, wood or glass, this exhibition showcases many different styles and materials including wall art, jewellery and 3D pieces. The mosaic artist community is very active, accessible to all ages, and pushing the boundaries of this wonderful and versatile medium.

Exhibition concludes on Friday 24 September at 4 pm.Mosaic Art Talks DayTo coincidence with the Bold and Beautiful exhibition SA Mosaics are running Mosaic Art Talks on Saturday 4 September 2021 at the Glenunga Hub (70 Conyngham Street, Glenunga). So if you are interested in enjoying a day of information and fun about mosaics this would be ideal.For any enquiries, please contact: Kristin Wohlers email: WohlersKristin@gmail.com or Helen Blackman email: mosaiccello@gmail.com
