A visit to the Fuller Craft Museum is always a rewarding experience. This July I was keen on seeing the museum’s new mosaic show because I know an artist who is combining encaustic and mosaics. Mosaics Today: Ancient Art Through a Contemporary Lens, features works by artists in the New England Mosaic Society. These artists are really pushing the craft in new and exciting directions. They tackle abstraction, sculpture, nature, realism, and current cultural issues.
A portrait of Ukraine’s Volodymyr Zelenskyy, wearing his signature green T-shirt, moved me, as did It’s All Too Much, by Ellen Aiken.
This exciting show is on view until December 4, 2022. Some other shows to visit: Marilyn Pappas: A Retrospective, a show of work by the Weavers’ Guild of Boston, New Museum Acquisitions, and Out of Bounds: The Art of Croquet.
