"Modern Mosaics" Masking Tape Art Installation
by Beth Courtright Detwiler - White Hills Gallery 2012
The Modern Mosaics Show was held at White Hills Gallery on Main Street in Camp Verde Arizona. The Artist was approached by Gallery Director, Stephanie Peters, to do an installed Masking Tape Art Mural as a participatory community outreach event to coincide with the theme of the show. A large scale masking tape drawing was created by the artist, as a type of oversized coloring book page, on four plate glass windows of an empty grocery store adjacent to the gallery. It was a great success with tremendous participation from the community. The mural also faired well in the natural elements and remained up for over 6 months in summer sun, monsoon rains and extreme heat.
