Welcome! The Minnesota Mosaic Guild (MMG) is an organization dedicated to the enjoyment and promotion of the mosaic arts. MMG shares knowledge, resources, mishaps and friendship at monthly meetings. This site serves as a guide to mosaicists in Minnesota and the surrounding area.
On Wednesday, September 10th, Bridging will be holding an event at the Ford Center. It will be a silent auction to raise money for Bridging. This is only their second year holding this event. Several members have made art from donated furniture that Bridging had at their facility. Rachel Arnston has created a mosaic chair. Mimi Leminh has done a mosaic on a table with a shelf, Julie Reeve has adorned a lamp, and Laura Lee has also done a mosaic top on a table. Trudy Vrchota and Janine Irisarri have teamed up and made a table into a Parcheesi game board.
I hope some of you will come to the Bridging event.
Guild Members- This is the invitation to the Silent Auction for Bridging. Several of us have made art from used furniture that was available to select from at the Bridging warehouse. Pictures of these pieces will be posted on the blog soon. Please think about coming to this event. It should be fun. I understand that they have a limited amount of tickets available.
Registration ends, Monday, September 8, 2014

The Mosaic Guild was represented at the Powderhorn Park Art Fair on August 2nd. We were one of two guilds that were asked to participate in the show. We had a lot of activity at our tent and I think we made some excellent connections with people who were interested in joining the guild or taking lessons. We hope to see some of them at our first meeting (after the summer break) at Mosaic on a Stick. Our meeting night moved to Wednesday the 17th.
Thank you to all who participated and made it a great event.
Hi Guild Members, FRIENDLY REMINDER - the date for our meeting has to be changed from the second Wednesday of the month to the third Wednesday. The meeting will be on September 17th at Mosaic on a Stick at 1564 Lafond Ave. St. Paul, 55104. Phone # is 651-645-6600. We start at 6:30pm for social time and 7:00pm for the meeting. We are asking anyone who would like to share to bring a mosaic piece to show and explain the inspiration for that particular mosaic. We will discuss items for the upcoming show that opens later in September. Mosaics for the show should be dropped off no later than that night. Thanks and see you there!
