PRESENTATION: From Ordinary to Odyssey: A Peripatetic Evolution
“Not all those who wander are lost” — J. R. R. Tolkien
Seven years ago, Margo Anton left home and country and embraced a wanderer’s life. From Greece to Australia, Egypt to Ireland she has truly become a nomadic mosaic artist, creating work inspired by the places she visits, teaching her unique mosaic styles, and gathering stories along the way. This presentation will reveal how she made the move from stationary artist to nomad, and talk about her ever-evolving journey and artistic style. Come hear about her joys, trials, madcap moments, and how she somehow makes it all work.
