“Our theme for 2022 is literal for us as mosaic artists, as our work comprises hundreds of individual pieces, each of which must be cut and placed. However, it’s also a metaphor for the last two years, as Canadians start to put their lives and communities back together as the pandemic recedes,” says Pippa Beck, Ontario Mosaic Artists artist and exhibition organiser.

“This year’s show will also include a silent auction for a one-of-a-kind collaborative mosaic, with all proceeds going to the Stephen Lewis Foundation.”
