2020 Presentation Program
2020 American Mosaic Summit: Tucson
May 12 – 17, 2020
Proposal DEADLINE .
September 30, 2019 Extended till October 2nd.
Each year, hundreds of SAMA members benefit from incredible presentations by both nationally known and international guests, such as Emma Biggs, Toyoharu Kii, Pamela Irving, Gary Drostle, Helen Bodycomb, James Hubbell, Lucio Orsoni, Marco Bravura, Ilana Shafir, Sonia King, Karen Ami, Sherri Warner Hunter, Sophie Drouin, Laurel True, Rachel Sager, Kim Emerson, Isaiah Zagar, Lillian Sizemore, Carrie Reichardt, Antonella Gallenda, Giulio Menossi, Verdiano Marzi and Bernice Steinbaum. Every year, SAMA strives to enhance the level of program excellence for its members. We are looking for program presenters and workshop instructors who are dedicated to educating, inspiring and promoting excellence in mosaic arts.
We plan for between seven to nine presentations/ panel discussions to the full group of registered attendees to occur in the evening of Wednesday, May 13, and throughout the day on Friday, May 15, and Saturday, May 16, 2020. Presentations and panel discussions are typically 40-50 minutes in length. Attendees represent an active and enthusiastic segment of our membership whose experience with mosaic art spans from enthusiasts and beginners to established business owners and mosaic masters. The goal of the program is to provide attendees with knowledge and inspiration that is not readily available to them in their region and that helps them reach their individual goals toward excellence in mosaic arts.
Invited Presenters are offered a modest honorarium and given one complimentary conference registration in gratitude for participating in our Conference.
