The Society of American Mosaic Artists has awarded Laurie Mika’s "Hope Springs Eternal" the top award in Best Two-Dimensional category in SAMA’s 2007 exhibit on display at the Mesa, Arizona Contemporary Arts Center March 20th through April 29th.
In the middle of cold Ohio, I find myself daydreaming about Laurie’s mixed media mosaic class in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico April 1-8 (there may still be openings). Her stamped, painted and collaged polymer clay tile assemblages are full of color and energy. Keep your eye out for her Mixed-Media Mosaics book which is coming out later this year.
I’m so glad Laurie won this top award ;
Her work is as nice as the person she is.
