The MOSAIC OF ART radio show explores the making and distribution of myriad varieties of visual art by talking with curators, historians, dealers, publishers, collectors and artists of all stripes -- about their creative processes. These two popular interviews aired in March, but since there are so many new listeners now, I'm re-broadcasting them today, as I'm on the road this (U.S.) Memorial Day weekend. Enjoy!? DR. SCOTT SHIELDS is the Chief Curator and Assoc. Director of Sacramento's Crocker Art Museum. He speaks about his recent commission to jury the Exhibition in Print that is featured in MOSAIC ART NOW - the 2010 edition. It wasn't an easy selection process from among more than 500 submissions. He describes his methodology,  highlights several of his favorite pieces and suggests what is needed for the mosaic medium to gain greater recognition.  ELLEN BLAKELEY won the Best in Show award for her sculpture "Meredith" in the exhibition and she reveals her inspirations, work methods and personal history. Besides her distinctive one-of-a-kind mosaic artworks, Ellen has also developed a line of mosaic tiles for the national -- and even international -- design market. Afterward, please let me know what you think! If you like, mark the show as a favorite on BlogTalkRadio. Next week, as promised, LAUREL TRUE will call in from the Memorial Mosaic Mural work site in Jacmel Haiti with a field report. NANCIE MILLS PIPGRAS will join me live to speak with her and also give us an update following her recent pow-wow with fellow Mosaic Art Now editors.
