“Solace” is one of the works in an exhibit of the art of Kathy Mellin Grubbs, “Mary in Mosaics,” running through July 12 in a gallery in the lower level of the Basilica of St. Mary in Minneapolis. The basilica is hosting an artist’s talk and reception at 6 p.m. Thursday, June 18. Grubbs, a basilica parishioner, is trained in both classic and contemporary mosaics. In addition to the classic use of carefully broken stone and fine poured Italian glass known as Smalti, she also utilizes porcelain, stained glass, ceramic, stone, fossils, handmade tile, beads, and found and reclaimed objects in the formation of her work.
