Morrisville Mosaics – A Community Project

July 15 @ 9:00 am - September 25 @ 4:00 pm

The Gallery at River Arts Presents:
Morrisville Mosaics – A Community Project
July 15 – September 25, 2019

Morrisville Mosaics, the culmination of a community collaborative project, will be on exhibit in the Gallery at River Arts July 15 – September 25, 2019. A reception will be held on Thursday, August 8 from 5-7pm. Free admission and refreshments, cash bar.

During the spring of 2018 River Arts began two creative community oriented projects – the first part to involve photography celebrating sense of place, “Morrisville-Favorite Places”, and the second, an interpretation of the photographic work. The photography exhibited at River Arts in the fall of 2018. For the second phase of the project, 6 of the photographs were selected representing a range of subject matter, digitally divided into sections, and distributed to over 60 Vermont artists. The only stipulation for the participating artists was to follow basic compositional elements in the photographic section they were given. Artists of all ages and abilities interpreted their panels through a diverse range of mediums including painting, collage, alcohol ink, 3D mixed-media, textiles, and glass mosaic.

The final mosaic compositions illustrate the importance of individual contributions to a larger purpose. Ultimately these artistic expressions form a tapestry of our human experiences. Morrisville Mosaics celebrates how individuals, working together, contribute to a more vibrant community.
