The Mosaic Project

The Hardy Gallery in Ephraim, WI, sponsors a fund-raiser each year called The Community Mosaic Project. Artists are invited to create a work on a 6″ square canvas and donate it to the gallery to be exhibited in the gallery as part of the large “mosaic” of all the works. Read more about the Community Mosaic Project and the Hardy Gallery here:

I have painted and donated a mosaic since 2010.

Diane Rath was a wonderful painter and a wonderful teacher. I was fortunate to be able to take two workshops with her. She was principled and demanding and her love of painting energized the studio.
