Mosaic artist Judy Gordon pieces together creative retirement

Judy Gordon is a Montague Art and Craft Society (MACS) member and a tutor for the mosaic group held each Wednesday morning from 10am at the MACS Studio, 24 Glasshouse Rocks Road, Narooma.

Visitors are welcome for the first two visits to check it all out.

Judy lives in Dalmeny with her husband Ron and her wonderful Animal Welfare League rescue dog, Daisy.

Having retired from full-time agriculture and science teaching in Tumut 12 years ago, Judy immediately started mosaic classes.

She was hooked pretty quickly and has been so ever since.

Many “ladies” have come and gone but a solid group still enjoys both the social aspects and the challenges of what to make next at the new MACS Studios.

Judy joined MACS and soon started weekend workshops which quickly established a group, getting together to mosaic at the old MACS cottage.

Clay Play is also on during Wednesday mornings and Judy has been occasionally making clay tiles and objects to include in her work.

After exhibiting mosaics in the annual MACS Open Easter Exhibition over the years, Judy has won awards and sells her work. She once “sold” the same chair three times.

Judy is also a member of the Artful 9, another group of mainly mosaicists who have held exhibitions at the SoArt Gallery venue. Their next one starts on May 3.

When she can tear herself away from the mosaics, Judy also enjoys painting and admits she is mad about dogs, as are her friends, many of whom have rescue dogs like Daisy.

If anyone is interested in learning how to create mosaics from the start, please contact the Narooma Visitor Information Centre for information on 4476 2881.

You could soon be mosaicking a shovel, a plant pot, an old wok, a house number or anything really!
