Constellations at Chester Cathedral

Constellations brings together outstanding works of contemporary mosaic by internationally recognised artists from across the UK and abroad, working at the very highest level.  Artists will present new work, never seen before, responding to the theme Constellations.  Mosaic is one of the most ancient and enduring art forms.  Each piece is unique – the individual tesserae are precisely cut to fit, demanding time, beautiful materials and highly skilled craftsmanship.  To appreciate a mosaic, you really need to see it!

Visitors will be able to enjoy the extraordinary variety of materials, texture and colour used by modern mosaic artists, and appreciate the detail and complexity of this art form.  There will also be a collaborative installation created from tiny jewel-like mosaics made in bottle tops!  This exciting exhibition has been curated by Aleta Doran, Artist in Residence at Chester Cathedral, and Manchester based mosaic artist Tracey Cartledge, on behalf of the British Association for Modern Mosaic.

In the Chapter House.
The exhibition will be open normal cathedral hours.
Free entry.  Donations welcome.
