Free Program by Renowned Artist Sonia King
Renowned mosaicist Sonia King will offer a free public slideshow / lecture on Saturday, September 8, 7:00 PM at All American Pub, 200 East Bland Street, Charlotte (formerly Jillian's), sponsored by Ciel Gallery + Mosaic Studio. All are welcome, but advance reservations are required due to limited seating.
Speaking on the "Art of Mosaic", the program covers historical mosaics through contemporary international mosaic art, and has recently been presented to the British Association for Modern Mosaics (BAMM) in London, Brazil, France, Australia, New Zealand and the Dallas Visual Arts Center in Texas. This program will be Sonia's only appearance on the East coast this year.
Sonia King, founding member and past president of the Society of American Mosaic Artists as well as Vice President of the Associazione Internazionale Mosaicisti Contemporanei (AIMC) in Ravenna, Italy, has been hugely instrumental in the forward momentum of contemporary mosaic art.
She is the author of the bestselling book Mosaic Techniques & Traditions from Sterling Publishing and is currently co-authoring Mosaic Master Class: The Advanced Techniques. Currently living in Dallas and San Francisco, King teaches advanced workshops internationally, and creates both fine art and installations found across the US.
This program is part of Ciel Gallery's Articulate: The Artists's Voice, an international exhibition of contemporary mosaic art juried by King, who will also have a piece in the exhibition as well as teaching a three-day master class at Ciel (full). The exhibition runs September 1 - October 27, with an Opening Reception Friday, September 7, 6:00 - 9:00 PM; Sonia King and many of the exhibiting artists will be present.
