PAM GIVENS came to her love for mosaics through early immersion. Her parents ran the "Mosaic Alcove" in Southern California during the 50s and 60s, when Pam was a teenager. Pam moved on to other pursuits, but eventually circled back and re-awakened an interest in mosaics. Besides her own studio work, she has created two major projects to share her passion with others: The social network web site Contemporary Mosaic Art and the workshop/tours with Giulio Menossi that she organizes. JEAN ANN DABB decided to forgo her family's plant business in Utah and to become instead a "perpetual student." Good move. She has taught art history and mosaics at the Univ. of Mary Washington since 1992. She  travels the world to see mosaics, documenting her visits with photography and notes, sharing both her casual observations and deeper study by writing for academic publications, for GROUTLINE, the SAMA (Society of American Mosaic Artists) newsletter and through her classes. Her studio work in mosaics is also informed by her study of ancient mosaics; she’ll talk about that influence, and we’ll look at some examples.
