|Email item||Print item||
February is the month of romance and love, and with just that in mind a programme of events for Valentine’s in Gozo has been organised by the Ministry for Gozo.
This Friday, an exhibition will be opening in Victoria – Mother and Daughter – a collective exhibition of mosaic and pottery by Katrin Formosa and her daughter Lisa, a mosaic artist with 15-years experience.
The materials give the artists the ability to express their love and emotions, creating distinctive art pieces.
Katrin took up ceramics and mosaic as a hobby in 1983, whilst living in New York, where she lived until 1988. She moved back to Gozo and set up her own studio at Ta’ Dbiegi Crafts Village in 1989.
She creates artistic, abstract, one offs and gallery items which are exhibited at her studio within the Village. Her clientele includes both locals, as well as tourists.
Katrin also teaches pottery and mosaic at the Lifelong Learning Education Centre in Gozo and organises short ceramics and mosaic appreciation sessions for tourists at her studio, as well as pottery sessions for kids in summer.
Mother and Daughter opens Friday, the 1st of February at the Cittadella Cultural Centre – Hall 3 until Thursday, the 28th of February, from 10:00am to 4:30pm everyday. Entrance is free of charge.
