MARVELLOUS mosaics are to be showcased in Berkeley.
The team at TomatoJack Arts are gearing up for an exhibition of local talent on Saturday, March 8 and Sunday, March 9.
Mosaic Medley will showcase art and craft created by people who have attended workshops at the gallery.
The arts studio, which opened in Berkeley in 2012, is run by friends and artists Angela Williams and Lynda Knott.
Ms Williams, also a teaching assistant at Berkeley Primary School, said: “The majority of the people exhibiting are new to mosaic, but the skill and talent demonstrated in their work is stunning.
“The range and diversity of mosaic art and craft being created in our workshops is amazing. There will be a wide range of individual styles on display with lots of experimentation with new techniques evident.”
A wide range of different materials are used in the artworks, including found objects, buttons, crockery, CDs, rocks and beads as well as traditional glass and ceramic tiles.
As well as viewing the exhibition, visitors will also be able to try their hand at cutting tiles and explore how mosaics are made, as well as find out about the courses on offer at TomatoJack.
Mosaic Medley will be open from 10am to 5pm over the weekend of March 8 and 9.
