The Hubbard County Developmental Achievement Center (DAC) received $1,305 from the Region 2 Arts Council (R2AC) to create matching mosaics with Nevis artist Marsha Wolff.

Work began on a pair of four-by-four-foot mosaics last week.

"It went a lot faster than I thought. These people are good workers," Wolff said.

The first mosaic features three geese. By Tuesday, it was nearly finished.

"They wanted something about this area. They wanted something true to who they were and represent, but something that's also nature-inspired," Wolff said of the design.

Husband Gary drew the geese on the wooden base, "and we went from there," she explained, utilizing colorful or patterned dishes purchased from Bearly Used or donated by local residents.

"We've had a lot of people working on it," Wolff said, including DAC clients, staff and community members.

The next mosaic will likely be dragonflies, she said.

Assistant DAC Director Gail Leverson and Wolff applied for the R2AC grant.

The public is invited to view the process Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to noon throughout June at the DAC.

When completed, the mosaics will be framed and hung in the DAC's front lobby.

"They'll actually drill it right into the wall because it's heavy," Wolff said.

A dedication ceremony will be held at 1:30 p.m. Monday, July 11 at the DAC center, located at 109 Pleasant Ave. Deputy Mayor Erika Randall is schedule to speak.
