Summer time and the living is easy! We hope you have a glass of something tall and cool to enjoy while catching up with all things mosaic in this week’s BOM.
In To Transform Emotions Into Colour, Maestro Guilio Menossi writes about what inspires him as an artist with the voice of a poet. His ouevre is characterized by elegant, sweeping structural arcs always emblazoned with color, color, color. This article was originally published in the 4th edition of the wonderful magazine, Mosaïque.
Our second featured article takes a look at an exhibit Menossi juried in 2009 for Ciel Gallery in Charlotte, North Carolina. You’ll find works by Irina Charney, Andjelka Radojevic, Irit Levy and others.
Our third article takes us back to Jacmel, Haiti in June 2010 as Laurel True wrapped up her first fabulous, life changing project there in conjunction with the Art Creation Foundation for Children (ACFFC). Now, ACFFC is offering a limited number of mosaic artists the opportunity to be part of a new initiative to cover the entire town in mosaic this October. There is a very reasonable cost – which includes a donation to ACFFC, of course. Details can be found by clicking our first Tweet of the Week or visiting their Facebook page.
Heads up! MAN is going on vacation from July 18 – July 23. That means no posts, no tweets, no articles, no BOM, no internet. Just a clear mountain lake and treasured friends to enjoy it with!
