“Magnificent M.A.M.” Mosaic Art Comes to Studio 1219

On March 6, 2010, Studio 1219 will proudly host an opening for the mosaic show, “Magnificent M.A.M.: The Mosaic Artists of Michigan in Two and Three Dimensions.” This show, fresh from the Birmingham/Bloomfield Art Center, features the colorful designs and expressive renderings of fine art mosaic masters from all over the state of Michigan. The public is invited to attend the reception March 6, from 7 pm to 9 pm to share conversation, wine, appetizers and this unforgettable exhibit. The show runs from March 6 through April 17. For more information, visit these websites: www.studio1219.com and www.mosaicartistsofmichigan.com.

A bit of whimsy is offered with this show such as mosaic shoes of all sizes and shapes, plus a spectacular mosaic-covered guitar and doghouse. Many M.A.M. members have achieved recognition in the art community from solo and international juried exhibits, publication in mosaic and other art books and magazines, plus public and private commissions including a group project to recreate children’s artwork in mosaic for the Children’s Hospital of Michigan.

“This is a great opportunity for the public to see a wonderful and unique collection of mosaic artwork,” said Lee-Perry Belleau, Director. “The Mosaic Artists of Michigan began in 2003 to share, educate and promote the resurgence of interest and appreciation in the ancient art of mosaics.”

 Studio 1219 is a nonprofit arts incubator and gallery dedicated to empowering artists to make an economic impact in the region. Open Tuesday, Wednesday 10 am – 5 pm, Thursday – Saturday 10 am – 8 pm. For more information, please call 810.984.2787.
