Serving on an international panel of jurors for the Society of American Mosaic Artists, UMW professor of art history Jean Ann Dabb selected works on display at the Mosaic Arts International exhibit in Austin, Tex. Mosaic art, one of the world’s oldest art forms, is experiencing a global revitalization. “This exhibition provides a unique opportunity to highlight outstanding examples of contemporary mosaic art from around the world in one venue, to allow viewers to experience the exciting new ways that artists are taking this art form to another level,” said Shug Jones, president of the SAMA Board of Trustees. “These artists, building on traditional and ancient art, are using both traditional and non-traditional materials to really push the art to a degree unseen in recent history.”
