Gallery 53 Artist Demo This Saturday! – ROCKY NECK ART COLONY

Gallery 53 Artist Demonstration – Second in series
Saturday July 18th, 2015 from 1 pm-3 pm

Gallery 53 on Rocky Neck is having their second live-artist demonstration to be held in the gallery on Saturday, July 18th from 1-3 pm. They will be featuring Pam Stratton, mosaic artist. Pam is mostly a self-taught artist but has studied in Ravena, Italy and Spilimbergo, Italy along with many weekend workshops to hone her craft[kb1] . She comments that creating mosaics “Is a deeply focusing activity like a meditation. I enjoy the solid permanence of the materials, their weight, their texture and their history. I often work with stone and glass together as it reflects my surroundings… the granite coast and ever changing sea.”

For the demo Pam will be working on a mosaic and demonstrating the use of the hammer and hardie.  She says, “Since antiquity, the most satisfying tools for accurate cutting of glass smalti, stone and marble have been the mosaic hammer and hardie. The hardie is like a chisel mounted in a wooden stump.”

Please come down and see the art of mosaics and talk with Pam as she shows you how it’s done.
