The artists in this exhibit represent a spectrum of what has been an explosion of interest in mosaics from the late 20th century up to today. Using a variety of techniques and materials, they have been reinventing the medium and exploring new ways of covering objects, walls, and more with bits of glass, ceramics, beads, polymer clay, marbles, resins, semi-precious, stones, precious metals, and many other materials that allow an idea to be expressed freely.
