Laurel True's Haiti Project

Some of you are aware that Laurel True, mosaic artist, has been doing some work in Haiti in the aftermath of the earthquake.  To read up on her project and how rewarding it's been, click on  This is the CMA (Contemporary Mosaic Artists) website.

I've been completing the design and we'll be kicking off our own Haiti Project in March!  Participating artists will have two months to complete our respective "mosaic quilt squares".  Edina Art Center has invited us to display our Haiti Project squares as a work in progress at our summer show along with an explanation of what it's all about.

I can't wait!

Edina Magazine Article

Edina Magazine will be publishing an article about MMG and our upcoming show at Edina Art Center!  The magazine has been provided with information on the history and mission of MMG as well as a selection of photos of artists and your work.  The magazine has also been provided with a few quotes from some of you about your love of mosaics.  SO - if you haven't started creating your show pieces, get to it!  This is going to be a great show with some good PR in advance.
