about

The purpose of Colorado Mosaic Artists is the promotion of mosaic as a fine art and the artistic and technical education of its members and the general public. CMA welcomes and supports all members including professional mosaic artists, dedicated amateurs and mosaic suppliers. Colorado Mosaic Artists is organized exclusively for educational and artistic purposes under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Mission:

  • Support and advocate for the mosaic art form in Colorado.
  • Encourage mosaic artists to grow through meetings and events.
  • Give visibility to the mosaic art form by providing exhibit opportunities.
  • Contribute to the community through mosaic art for recognized charitable organizations.

Monthly meetings:

For ease of travel for all members, meetings have been held up and down the Colorado Front Range, with a summer meeting on the Western Slope. Gatherings include a short Business Meeting followed by topical discussions, demonstrations, artistic critiques and mosaic Swap & Shop where members sell or trade tesserae and other items.
