Chiaroscuro (NW Mosaic Art Alliance)

Mosaic: an ancient art reinvigorated by contemporary artists. Artists are using traditional tools and materials, often combining them with non-traditional materials to create astonishing new work.

The Northwest Mosaic Art Alliance is a group of 10 artists from Oregon and Washington who have come together to create Chiaroscuro, an exhibition that explores the nature of light and dark, how shadows are cast by the materials in the works, and how mosaic materials either reflect or absorb light. Over 40 abstract and representational wall-hung and free-standing works are seen in this exhibition. Prices will range from $200 to $5000.
