A Night on the Tiles is timely, underpinning a current debate surrounding the status and recognition of mosaic within the art world. These North West artists, working in quite different ways, share a passion for the application of materials that put their work into the bracket ‘mosaic’. Subterfuge and controversy about whether its place lies within ‘art’ or ‘craft’ has frequently prevented the output of modern mosaic makers from being seen by contemporary audiences. The exhibition at 2022NQ aims to dismiss the smoke screen and focus instead on the work itself.

We look forward to welcoming you to our exhibition!!
