We love featuring a variety of mosaic artists and jewelers. Something is always new!
Current Exhibition - August 2 to October 27, 2019
Founded in 2000, Art with a Heart brings interactive visual arts classes into schools, community centers, group homes, shelters, permanent housing facilities, hospitals, and senior housing facilities.
In addition to its interactive art classes, Art with a Heart has complementary initiatives, including a job program (HeARTworks), service learning opportunities, community service projects, public art efforts, a social enterprise/retail store, HeARTwares, and a leadership program.
Andamento Gallery is please to spread the word and help raise funds for Art with a Heart. For this exhibit, we are proudly showing mosaic work created in their classes and workshops. Full of color and sparkle, brimming with energy and fun, we hope you will come and enjoy and maybe take home a mosaic, supporting the work of this amazing organization.

We carry Fine Mosaic Jewelry by Guest Artist Margo Anton. Each astonishingly beautiful, one-of-a-kind mosaic jewel is painstakingly created from 24K gold leaf Italian glass tile, filati, Italian smalti, millefiori, pearls, semi-precious stones, and fossils. The tiny pieces are hand cut and individually inlaid into each sterling silver base. All earrings suspend from solid sterling silver earwires. All pendants come with a solid sterling chain.
November 1, 2019 to February 9, 2020 - Pris Ewing and Robyn Abrams
Pris is a self-taught Outsider Artist with no formal art education nor childhood exposure to art due to living in remote locations. She creates mosaic art to please herself and many times the materials and colors used in her mosaics reflect her mood and feelings at the time. Her main inspiration for mosaics is a constant fascination with color combinations and textures. Pris is also the owner and operator of Murano Millefiori, the single largest supplier of Italian millefiori and glass products outside of the factory in Murano/Venice, Italy.
Robyn’s artistic journey began with painting murals and works on canvas until the love of mosaics took center stage. Robyn is fascinated by the endless creative possibilities of mosaic art. The ability to create 3-D mosaic sculptures using variety of unusual materials one day, and work on a stained glass portraits the next day is a source of constant challenge and excitement. Robyn believes that creation is one of life’s greatest joys, and mosaic art gives us this possibility. Robyn has shared her love and joy of creating mosaics by volunteering with children on the autistic spectrum at MarbleJam Kids in Bergen Co., NJ. and mosaic workshops with residents of Project Home in Philadelphia, PA.
February 14 to April 26, 2020 - Emily Luking
Emily Luking is an emerging fiber artist from Baltimore, Maryland. She got her B.F.A. in fibers from Savannah College of Art and Design. Her work plays with the way the senses of touch and sight interact with one another, creating explosive texturescapes that combine traditional fiber art processes - such as crochet, dye, and beading - with an eclectic mix of found objects and recycled materials. These fibrous mosaics are abstractions of her own emotions, channeled through the filter of synesthesia, which she experiences as moving shapes triggered by touch sensations.
May 1 to August 2, 2020 - Yulia Hanansen
(We are thrilled to be welcoming Yulia back for another exhibition at Andamento!)
Yulia Hanansen was born in 1972 in Moscow, Russia. She lived in Russia, Uzbek Republic, Lithuania, New York City, Ann Arbor, MI, and is currently residing in the charming city of Baltimore. She is a second-generation mosaic artist and has been professionally involved in mosaic making since 2001. The mission of her Mosaic Sphere Studio is to build public awareness about mosaics, and to exhibit the superb qualities of mosaic techniques. Mosaics are made for commission, or they can be purchased as ready-made pieces. Pieces include architectural installations, back-splashes, wall pieces, public and community projects.
Yulia's latest works represent her fascination with themes of nature, climate change, cosmos, and a connection of human beings to it. Her personal artwork uses layered glass mosaic technique, where tiles are glued on top of each other. This technique is about the infinity. Like in a brush-stroke painting, there is no end to a number of the brush-strokes that can be applied to the work surface.
Yulia's works have been exhibited in the galleries nationwide.
