Today, I visited The Art of Mosaic 2009 exhibit at the Somerville Museum in Somerville, MA, US. The exhibit closes on October 31, so I wanted to blog about it right away in case you have a chance to see it.
Also on Saturday, October 31, there is a Mosaic Supplies Vendor Show at the museum from 12 - 4 pm. If I had known that, I might have waited to go Saturday when I could shop. (As if I need to try mosaic with all of that yarn taking over my studio!)
A new show Mosaic Voices will be held at the Somerville Museum Nov 5 - Dec 13, 2009. I'm already making plans to attend.
The museum is in a pretty section of Somerville, surrounded by some gorgeous Victorian homes.
Any museum with an entrance like this is worth a visit!
Here are some of the mosaics that caught my eye (in random order).
I must admit that I love the very open photo policy of this show and the artists in the show. And I love mosaics! I had no idea that so many artists in New England were creating beautiful mosaics.
