Transformations: Tapestries in Glass

October 5, 2016 - November 6, 2016

Anita Bucsay Damron’s mosaics draw from many sources, both traditional and contemporary. Inspired by tapestries from Rajasthan and Gujarat, India, they incorporate crystal from Austria and the Czech Republic, specialty glass from Murano, Italy, and found objects such as beads, brooches, and cameos. Damron notes that “new applications of mosaic art encourage recycl[ing] and reuse,” and her creative reuse of materials is what gives this ancient art form its exciting new sparkle.
