Sophie Drouin Fine Art Mosaics:
Storytelling in Stone

On exhibit Friday, May 24 to Sunday, September 29, 2019

Sophie Drouin showcases her beautiful works of mosaic art in this amazing exhibit. She is an internationally recognized practitioner of this ancient art form, received training in Canada, Italy, France and the United States.

In her mosaic work, she aspires to convey weightlessness and fluidity, and her pieces at times seeming to defy gravity. Her extensive use of many types of stones in particular allows her to play with textures and contrast as well as colour tones and hues.
