One week from today I’ll be making a 3′ x 4′ mixed media mosaic in West Springfield, MA at the Big E! I’ve been hired by Gail McWilliam Jellie, Director of the Division of Agricultural Development at the NH Dept. of Agriculture, Markets & Food to do a week long demonstration of a mixed media mosaic. What an honor!
The Big E is an enormous event that begins Sept. 12 and ends Sept. 28. The venue is the size of a small city and events include; a daily Mardi Gras parade, a circus, a performance stage, a midway with all kinds of rides, horse and cattle shows, hundreds of restaurants, you name it, it’s there! I’ll be located in the NH Building on the Avenue of States from Sept.19th- 25th.
The theme for the mosaic is “Eat Local” and portrays the “farm to table” movement. I was inspired by the surge in growth of NH farms and a huge upswing in interest in organic farming. Of course I’ll include all kinds of colorful produce, but the mosaic will also have a few surprises! It’ll be a bit like “Where’s Waldo”- you’ll have to look hard to find them…
This commissioned mosaic will hang permanently in the NH Building. I’m so proud and excited to be a part of this huge event! I hope you’ll come by and say hello!
