Shenkman Promenade and Trinity Galleries

Mosaic / Mosaïque 2015
by/par Kerstin Peters
Every February, ARTEAST showcases the best of the members’ works during the juried Mosaic exhibition which is held in the Trinity Gallery at the Shenkman Arts Centre. This year, which marks the 25th anniversary for ARTEAST, the number of applications was especially high. This made the choice for the jury very difficult as 165 works were submitted with space for only 62. The many entries raised the bar very high and the jury had a difficult choice. At the end, 58 artists brought in their works. The exhibition demonstrates the great talent of the ARTEAST members who work in many different mediums and styles. Both two- and three-dimensional artworks shine a bright light on the artistic diversity and artistic skills. You find works done in acrylic, watercolour, oil, mixed media, pastel, charcoal, graphite, coloured pencil, encaustic, marble, paper clay, alabaster, and wool, as well as photographs and digitally manipulated photographs.
Three artists received a Juror’s Choice Award:
The “ARTEAST Award of Excellence” went to Patrick Imai for his piece “Motherhood 2”, an alabaster sculpture of two bear cubs with their mother. Patrick was the first artist who received the new trophy for the “ARTEAST Award of Excellence” which is now placed in the Promenade cabinet.
À chaque mois de février, ARTEAST expose à la Galerie Trinity du Centre
Shenkman, les meilleures oeuvres sélectionnées par un jury.
