The Christchurch Mosaic Art Group brings 'Media Freedom’ to Eastside Gallery, following on from their very successful exhibition last year.

Mosaics have been discovered dated as far back as the 3rd century BC. A mosaic is a piece of art or image made from many small pieces of coloured glass, stone, or other materials. It is still often used in decorative art or as interior decoration.

Modern mosaics are made by professional artists, hobby artists, and as a popular craft. 2018 is the second year that the Christchurch Mosaic Art Group brings 'Media Freedom' to the Eastside Gallery in Linwood, Christchurch. Included are a number of art pieces from various artists located in Christchurch and around the South Island.

You will see from this exhibition that each artist, with their own style and choice of materials, is successful in re-defining and re-creating the mosaic art form.

'Media Freedom' demonstrates that there really are no limits to the media that a mosaicist can use to create pieces of art. Glass, ceramic, porcelain, stone, slate, beads, and clay are just some of the many materials used.

Entry to this exhibition is free, with many pieces available for purchase.
