At the Chandler Gallery’s Small Works Salon 2018, Cartography Points in New Directions
We begin with a Rand McNally World Atlas. A copper tube twists over, around and through the book, with numerous severed ends poking up through the cover. Like this sculpture, “Maps of Future Pipelines” by Steven Muller, the pieces in the Chandler Gallery’s upcoming “Small Works Salon 2018” encompass, pierce and skewer maps and map-making. Juror Heidi Whitman, an artist and the teacher of “Mapping: Painting and Drawing” at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University, has chosen works that repurpose maps to address concerns beyond physical geography.
Maud Morgan Art hosts artist and art teacher Paul Hackett in our Mobile Making Workshop! Our students will add their own unique twists by coloring, drawing and decorating paper then turning their masterpieces into moving pieces of art!
Event is free, please RSVP by registering. Note if parents are registering their children, parents must be present throughout the workshop.Learn more >

10 am to 4 pm
Adult / Teen Workshop
Design and fabricate a 8” X 8” mosaic using handmade Mexican tiles, called smalti, with unusual variations of color and texture. We will learn how to cut tiles into a variety of shapes and arrange them to best emphasize the lines and shapes in your design.
You will go home with all the information that you need to continue making mosaics on your own. Students should bring photos, books, and sketches as inspiration for mosaic designs. If you have some things sized for 8” X 8” that will be very helpful.
All materials will be provided. A materials fee of $40 to be paid to instructor. All experience levels welcome.Learn more >
