DETROIT, MICHIGAN — Contemporary mosaic artist, Peggy Schuning, will exhibit her piece entitled “Unbroken, Uncovered, Undone” at the Mosaic Arts International exhibit in Detroit, Michigan.
Schuning’s artistic vision focuses on uncovering a masterpiece in the broken, discarded, or unused pieces of daily life through the reuse of slate, stone, stained glass, ceramic tile, smalti, and other broken and found objects. Born and raised in Eaton, Schuning currently resides in Greenhills. Her artwork can be seen and purchased at Pendleton Art Center Studio 414 in Cincinnati every final friday of the month from 6-10 p.m. or through www.peggyschuningmosaics.com.
The Mosaic Arts International: Fine Art segment was juried by a panel of internationally accomplished jurors: Gary Drostle, London, UK, Shug Jones, Garland, Texas, and Sergio De Giusti, Redford Township, Michigan. Their dedicated work culminated in the selection of 35 works for inclusion in the MAI Fine Art exhibition from over 200 entries.
Held in conjunction with the 16th Annual American Mosaic Summit, Mosaic Arts International: Juried Fine Art and Invitational runs through June 15.
The 16th Annual Mosaic Arts International Exhibition (MAI), sponsored by the Society of American Mosaic Artists (SAMA), invigorates a new perspective of mosaic art in numerous contexts and celebrates established as well as emerging artists working in the medium today. The selected works reflect the multiplicity of the mosaic medium and its unlimited applications. But, regardless of the style, colors, textures, materials, or vision, each of the works exhibited speaks an ancient language with a contemporary translation.
Mosaic Arts International 2017 will be presented at the Janice Charach Gallery, Jewish Community Center of Metropolitan Detroit, in West Bloomfield, Michigan through June 15. The exhibition will be comprised of a juried exhibit featuring the best in contemporary fine art mosaics from SAMA’s diverse international membership as well as a special invitational exhibition of the work of Verdiano Marzi.
