Contemporary Mosaics Demonstration
Denise Toson: Special guest artist from the Italian American Icons exhibition will lead a mosaic demonstration at MarinMOCA.

Go behind the scenes with a contemporary mosaic master who will demonstrate the tools, materials, and techniques used in contemporary mosaic-making. You will observe the unique approach to color theory in mosaics, how this contrasts with use of color in other media, and apply what you see to a greater appreciation of mosaic artwork made from smalti (hand-cut glass). Smalti is used by the contemporary mosaic masters who created the works on view in Italian American Icons. This is the finest mosaic-making material and creates a distinct look and feel from ceramic tile. View examples of how mosaic art has evolved from Roman through Byzantine and Contemporary styles. Seating is limited, reserve your spot today.

Denise Toson graduated from the Scuola Mosaicisti del Friuli and is an artist in residence of MarinMOCA. Her work is featured in Italian American Icons on view through November 7, 2021.
