Mosaic Artist Talk at the Old Schwamb Mill
Friday, October 26, 7:00pm ”Breaking into Mosaics: Finding a Visual Voice” presented by award winning mosaic artist Carol Shelkin
We are always trying to find our own distinctive technique, expression or visual voice in the arts. The question is: How do we do that? This PowerPoint Presentation will show beautiful mosaic works, materials and techniques from the Byzantine period to modern day and steps on how we find our own style. We'll explore what we do with our art once we find our voice and the materials we like to work with. We will understand how to "Express Ourselves"! Q & A after.
Shelkin’s art work is on view in the current exhibition in the Mill’s second floor gallery “Mosaic at the Mill - A Show of Mosaic Art” featuring the work of 40 local and regional mosaic artists.
The Old Schwamb Mill is an 1864 oval picture frame factory and living museum.
Open Tuesdays and Saturdays 11-3 for tours and gallery viewing. Groups by appt.
Shopping is available at the Shaker Workshops store in the mill’s barn: furniture, lamps, rugs, and many seasonal and unique gift items Mon-Sat 10-5
