BAMM - Contemporary Mosaic

Private View: 6-8pm Friday 29 September
Exhibition times: 23 Sept - 1 October 12-5pm ( 10-5pm Sunday 1 October)

The British Association for Modern Mosaic (BAMM) was founded in 1999 and exists to promote, encourage and support excellence in contemporary mosaic art and to raise public awareness through exhibitions, publications, events and related educational activities. BAMM is an energetic and enthusiastic membership organisation open to all those interested in contemporary mosaic, whether you are an artist, a collector, student or enthusiast. We are all here to celebrate this unique art form.

BAMM is holding its annual Forum in Scotland for the very first time. Normally held in London, this year Edinburgh is hosting the event.  As part of the weekend long activities the Contemporary Mosaic exhibition of BAMM members’ work will be on show at Patriothall Gallery from Saturday 23 September to Sunday 1 October 2017.  Open 12noon – 5pm daily and 10-5pm on Sunday 1 October.

The exhibition will include a wide variety of work ranging from the professional and internationally recognised practitioner, to the amateur artist and to those who are less experienced but have an inherent passion for their chosen media.

Mosaic in Scotland has been influenced on the one hand by the Italian diaspora with its Classical approach and on the other by artists such as the late George Garson, Dugald MacIness and Joanna Kessel who approach the media from a purely artistic point of view.

BAMM, by way of its forums, exhibitions and workshops, provides a platform for mosaicists to learn and develop along personal pathways.  The Association continues to open doors to a wide range of contemporary approaches to mosaic throughout Britain and internationally.
