Piece-by-Piece: History, methods, materials and contemporary directions in mosaic art
Please join us for an exploration into the past and present of mosaic art and its production. This presentation will cover highlights of the evolution of mosaics beginning with pavements in the Mediterranean Basin from the 4th century BCE, up through the most recent mosaic installations in the New York City subway. The most common mosaic methods will be described and tools and materials will be available with which to experiment after the presentation.
Presenter Cindy Stanton, a Moultonborough resident, has studied and practiced mosaic art for many years.
