The work of three talented mosaic artists – all of whom have distinctively different styles – is on display in our social hall exhibit space February 21 – March 27. The exhibit is open for viewing on Sunday mornings before and after services, as well as during special events that are held in the Social Hall. Some of the pieces in the exhibit are for sale, and artists Debbie Cash and Cheryl Anderson would consider discussing commissions of their work.
Tom Miller is a late bloomer as an active artist. He likes using beautiful materials to create beautiful art. He also enjoys the freedom as an artist to actualize his own vision.
Church member Cheryl Anderson works in several mediums and often tries to combine them to create something new. In her mosaic work, she starts with a painting. She then covers the painting with glass, stone, and other objects to create a second layer. The piece is then grouted and the grout is often painted as well. Even though it is quite labor intensive, Cheryl feels the finished piece has an organic feeling and depth that adds interest for the viewer.
Church member Debbie Cash has always loved creative activities that involve putting things together to make something new. She used to get this in doll and mask making, collage, and mixed media. When she discovered mosaics, she knew she had found her true calling. Debbie especially enjoys using broken dishes and other ceramic pieces to give her work lots of texture.
