Talk by Visiting Mosaic Artist Dagmar Friedrich
October 9, 2016 at 5:00 pm–7:00 pm
CANCELLED – This event has been cancelled.
Special for ArtWeek, join us for a rare opportunity to meet, interact with and listen to a talk by visiting artist Dagmar Friedrich. Dagmar received her mosaic training at the Scuola Mosaicisti Friuli in Spilimbergo, Italy. She teaches at this world famous school in their summer program and in her own atelier in Spilimbergo. Dagmar will take us on a journey through time from ancient Roman floor mosaics through Byzantine glass wall coverings to the contemporary Spilimbergo style of mosaic. Rediscover the wonder of ancient stone and glass mosaics. Then turn to the contemporary, also focusing on natural materials with a lively new connection; each piece is characterized by its own shape, structure, color and its magical correlation to the surrounding tesserae. Questions and discussion at the end. Come practice your Italian or German language skills.
