-A A +A

Cedar Key artist Valerie Bretl is one of 40 mosaic artists selected for the 2014 Mosaic Arts International exhibition.
Three jurors chose Bretl’s mosaic titled, “Festivity,” out of hundreds of entries from countries including Canada, England, Israel, Mexico, Brazil, Italy, Australia, Japan and the United States.
Bretl’s mosaics have been selected for the annual Mosaic Arts International exhibition three times in the last five years, causing her mosaics to grow in both acclaim and value.
A well-known art collector purchased Bretl’s mosaic during the artists reception on May 3 at the Williams Tower Gallery in Houston, Texas.
In Cedar Key, Bretl’s mosaics can be seen at the Island Hotel and Restaurant and in the Cedar Key Arts Center sculpture garden.
The international exhibition runs from April 24 to May 30, at Williams Tower Gallery, Houston, Texas.
