“Cutting Edges”, a Rocky Mountain Regional mosaic exhibit, opens with an Artists Reception Friday, September 6th from 5:00 to 7:00 pm at the Lakewood Cultural Center in Lakewood, Colorado. The show, juried by internationally recognized artist Julie Richey, runs from September 6th through November 2nd at 470 South Allison Parkway, which is behind the shops at the SW corner of Alameda and Wadsworth. The show gallery hours are 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Mondays through Fridays and 10:00 am to 2:00 pm Saturdays. The Colorado Mosaic Artists-organized show features 50 different mixed media mosaic works by different artists from the states of Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming. Several of the artists have included special small size pieces available for sale in the lobby. I am excited to share that I had two pieces selected for the show; “Corazon del Arco Iris” (Rainbow Heart) in the poster above, and “Reach of the Sacred Heart” shown below. I will be at the opening reception and would love to see some fellow mosaic lovers there as well!
Saturday, September 7 from 1:00-5:00 pm juror Julie Richey will present a Workshop highlighting her experiences creating mosaics, both exhibiting and commissioned projects – tip and suggestions, pitfalls and more! There will be time for Q and A as well! The workshop is $30 and pre-registration is required and space is limited. For more information, contact the Lakewood Cultural Center at 303-987-7845. A graduate of the University of Dallas, juror Julie Richey began making mosaics in 1991, completing residential, commercial, sacred and public art projects in the US, Italy, Spain and Mexico.

First of all, I would like to say, “Welcome” and “Thank You” to all the great new students and shop customers who have come to classes and workshops and the Supply Shop this Summer at the new TileMosaicGirl shop in Glendale! You have all been a blast and I continue to be inspired by all your great work! Keep the photos and updates coming! Special Congrats go to TMG mosaic student (and part-time instructor) Becki Whittington, who submitted her first mosaic piece to a juried contest from the Broomfield Council on the Arts and Humanities and WON!!! Her tempered glass mosaic design will be gracing all of the posters for the 2012 Broomfield Days celebration! She was also honored to recieve a request from the Broomfield Library to add her artwork to their permanent collection! The annual Broomfield Days posters often sell out, so they can be pre-ordered at firstname.lastname@example.org or at the poster booth at the September 15th festival if there are any remaining. I am SO proud of Becki, both for overcoming any nerves about entering an arts contest and for actually being the BIG WINNER!!!
Now, onto Fall 2012...I have found that my schedule and ‘life’ of making and selling art, teaching art, and managing the Mosaic Supply Shop has become just WAY too overloaded! So, I will be spacing my classes out more to try to handle it all a little bit better. I have also found that ‘Open Studio Time’ and open Supply Shop hours have not really ‘worked’, so, from now on, the Supply Shop will be open By Request only…just email, Facebook, text, or call me as far ahead as possible and we’ll see what we can arrange. I will be discontinuing Open Studio Time as a way to better manage things, but if you have a time that you really want to come and work on things, please let me know and maybe you can come do some “gluin’” with me while I’m working in the studio!
As far as classes go, I will be holding (2) this Fall: Mosaic Jewelry on Wednesday, October 10th, and a “Make a Mosaic Quickie” workshop for Mosaic Mirrors for Holiday Gifts on Sunday, December 9th. If you would like to set-up a custom, small group workshop or class, please contact me regarding availability, content, prices, etc.! I think I will offer the next Beginner’s Mosaics class in January 2013 and Tempered Glass Mosaics in February 2013, with Outdoor/Garden Mosaics classes not starting until Spring 2013. I am also still looking into having other, guest instructors come and teach some classes for all of you great people! Stay tuned!
Lastly, I wanted to share that I will be exhibiting and selling my artwork at a number of events this Fall: The Friends of the Museum and Library show at Littleton’s Ketring Park on Saturday, October 6th; the “El Dia de los Muertos/Day of the Dead” show at the CHAC Norte Gallery, October 3rd through November 3rd; and the “Christmas Mercado/Our Lady of Guadalupe” show at the CHAC Norte Gallery, November 7th through December 24th. A unique opportunity starting September 1st is the “Beyond Borders Online Mosaic Auction” benefitting Doctors Without Borders, an online-only auction held September 1st through 21st. Register to bid! Follow your favorite artworks with email notifications! Refer your friends! All pieces this year measure 6×6″, which will make many accessible to lots of people! To access all the wonderful artwork from a huge variety of international mosaic artists, head to:
(And, FINALLY)…I need to let you know that I will be out of town on an extended vacation and unavailable by phone, email, web, facebook, etc. until about September 20th. Please know that you won’t get a response from me until then but feel free to contact me and leave your questions or requests. HAPPY LATE SUMMER!

I’m VERY excited to share the news that TileMosaicGirl will be moving into its very own space (small but mighty!) by the end of this month (March, 2012)! The new space will house classes, the Mosaic Supply Shop, and Open Studio Time! We will be able to offer a wider range of days and times for classes, the Shop, and Open Studio, which will also enable us to host Visiting Instructor mosaic artists! The new location is only about 2 miles North on Colorado Blvd., just off Colorado on Kentucky at Birch. It has Home Depot/Whole Foods to the North and the Glendale Infinity Park to the East. The shop is located in a wonderful multi-use building called “The Workshops”, and I will be on the 2nd floor, which is the “Arts & Crafts floor”. The new address (click for map and photo link) is:
It is located in a great little revitalized neighborhood, but when they built the building in 1997, they installed Intercoms for entrance to the elevator, so you will need to buzz the unit # to be let in. There is plenty of free, lighted parking, wonderful fellow tenants, and many other amenities. More details and photos to come soon!Tags: art, beginner mosaics, CO, crafting, crash glass mosaics, Denver classes, Denver crafters, Denver mosaic classes, Denver mosaic supplies, Denver mosaics, Garden mosaics, grouting, handmade, how to grout, Mosaic Classes, mosaic how to, mosaic jewelry, mosaics, mosaics Glendale, online registration, tempered glass mosaics, The Workshops Glendale, tile mosaics, TileMosaicGirl, TMG moving, TMG new shop
