COVERING 2021 in Orlando was really fun!
Coverings 2021 was a very well organized and well spaced event - certainly smaller in physical size, but not on impact. Useful educational sessions as well as live and virtual demonstrations were well attended. Of special interest was the presence of SAMA (Society of American Mosaic Artists) on site with a lovely100 piece small mosaics exhibition as well as an additional section with a virtual exhibition of mostly installed or public mosaic works.

The Coverings Lounge also hosted an ongoing live mosaic making demonstration by a local Orlando artist - very fun and opens the door for future tile and mosaic exhibits and demonstrations on site to become part of future hands-on and installation programs. It really was a very good feeling to meet up with so many tile friends and colleagues, sponsors and members.

There was a generous flow of attendees each day and I will say from my experience those three days, that in general, most people seemed unhurried and took more time to stop and chat, ask questions than during previous events - which always seemed a great bustle of activity. All in all it was very valuable for Tile Heritage and all exhibitors and organizations, for all of us to once again have face to face contact with one another, spread the word and accomplish some of the goals we set for ourselves, engaging with others in meaningful and fruitful ways!
