INTRODUCTION: Global Mosaic was a juried online exhibition showcasing the work of visual artists worldwide highlighting human diversity as our greatest strength.  This exhibition artistically illustrated our fundamental human connectedness, which supersedes creed, culture, gender, race and any other distinction.  Being in the same human family, the exhibition was a visual reminder that everyone is an essential part of what we could call a “global mosaic,” and that it is by embracing our differences and respecting each other that we not only enrich our own lives, but also build more compassionate communities and bring peace, harmony and hope to our world.  

 

For this exhibition, visuals artists globally were invited through an open call to submit one artwork produced in the last three years of any two or three dimensional still art medium reflecting their best representational or abstract interpretation of the theme, adding their voice to a celebration of our wondrous "global mosaic.”  As a juried show, 30 artworks were selected from the submissions by a panel of judges, as well as First, Second and Third Place Awards, plus an Honorable Mention.
