Featured Articles of the Week

Welcome to the Premier Edition of The Best of MAN (The BOM)!

Welcome to the premier edition of Mosaic Art NOW’s weekly newsletter – The Best of MAN (BOM)!  Every Sunday, BOM subscribers will be kept up to date on what’s happening at mosaicartnow.com via three featured articles and five tweets of the week.  The MAN website currently hosts over 300 feature articles featuring over 150 artists from around the world and we’re constantly creating new content.  It can be a bit overwhelming.  The BOM is your weekly  ”sampler” of what is available on MAN.

So, grab a cup of whatever tastes like Sunday to you and get ready to explore, engage and enjoy the best in contemporary mosaic art and thought.  Here is what we have for you this week in Features:

From our “Ideas” department on mosaicartnow.com, take a ride in Felice Nittolo’s (Italy) mosaic Fiat 500 and find out what drives him as an artist courtesy of Ravenna-based blogger Luca Maggio.  From the “Why Mosaic?” department, you will find a video of Sonia King (US), award-winning US artist, discussing why the medium is her choice for artistic exploration.  From our “Archives” we’ll revisit our September 2011 review of Forward Mosaic! an exhibition hosted by the City of Quebec featuring work by Jo Braun (US), Lynne Chinn (US), Sophie Drouin (Canada).

Art:  Jim Bachor, This Is Not A Craft (After Magritte) 2010 11 x 14 inches Smalti and marble.
