The Society of American Mosaic Artists (SAMA) will be featured demonstrating the art of mosaic at The Sculpture Objects Functional Art and Design (SOFA) Fair in Chicago, November 3-6, 2016 at Navy Pier! Our 2016 Volunteer of the Year, Kim Wozniak, will be leading our volunteers at SAMA’s Educational Demo space once again at this year’s fair. The volunteers will be working throughout the weekend to mosaic an egg-shaped sculpture, sharing the experience with school groups, gallery owners, artists, and fair-goers to demonstrate the magnetic process of mosaic art! The demo space will also feature the work of over 30 SAMA Member Artists challenged to work with the shape of an egg in an 8” x 10” format. The resulting installation is expected to be a memorable representation of the vast potential of mosaic art and showcases the depth of talent within SAMA’s membership.
The Sculpture Objects Functional Art and Design (SOFA) Fair in Chicago is the premier gallery-presented art fair dedicated to three-dimensional art and design. SOFA is held annually in the fall at Chicago’s major destination, Navy Pier, with an average of 80 dealers and 35,000 people attending.
