The New England Mosaic Society
Invites all members to participate in a
New Voices in American Mosaics,
The New England Mosaic Society 2024 All Member Juried Exhibition

From the Roman mosaic interiors of Pompeii, to the gold flecked ceilings of Byzantine churches in Ravenna, Italy, to the exquisitely preserved tile floors of Zeugma, Turkey, mosaics have been important clues to our understanding of ancient cultures. The enduring quality of these amazing works of mosaic art have allowed us to see how these ancient civilizations lived, loved, warred and died.  For over ten years, the New England Mosaic Society has brought together mosaic artists who are using this medium to express modern life; creating work as technically masterful, creatively constructed, and relevant as anything being done elsewhere in the world. Please join us for an exhibition of work by our talented members, a group of American mosaic artists pushing the boundaries of this amazing medium, continually exploring how an ancient art form can be imbued with contemporary spirit.

October 19 - December 14, 2024

This is a juried show open to all NEMS members whose 2024 membership dues have been paid. The jurors will be the Narrows Gallery Director, Debra Charlebois and Curators Cathleen Joyce and Kathy Spencer. They will have sole discretion over the selection of pieces without input from NEMS. 
We are so excited to have a beautiful gallery as a venue! This is a large space and will accommodate many pieces, including three dimensional works.  Each member is guaranteed to have at least one work in the exhibition.  The only restrictions are that the work must never have been shown at the Narrows Center for the Arts in the past or a previous NEMS exhibit.  All work must have been completed within the years of 2023-2024.  We would highly encourage you to submit a new work though, so let's see what you can create in the next three months!
