Awakening by Sophie Drouin

Last week I spent four incredible days at the annual Society of American Mosaic Artists (SAMA) conference. I was able to totally immerse myself in mosaics by participating in workshops, attending lectures, interacting with other mosaic artists, and viewing a wide range of mosaic artworks.

The above mosaics created by Ilana Shafir and Sophie Drouin, artists that I have had the privilege of taking workshops with,  have wonderful texture and beautifully utilize stone,  my favorite material. These pieces and many other amazing mosaics are currently on exhibit in the  Mosaic Arts International 2012 exhibition at the Lexington Center Museum & Gallery through April 27, 2012.
