Artist of the Month
Carol Krentzman

June 2 -  August 31


Carol Krentzman is a mosaic artist and teacher who creates colorful large mosaic portraits. Carol creates artwork in her home studio and on location for installations. She is a graduate of Massachusetts College of Art and since then has continued her art education by studying with many different teachers. Since 2000 her focus has been on creating stained glass and mosaics. Her commission work can be seen in Natick at the Morse Institute Library, at TCAN - The Center for Arts in Natick, on the side of the Fair & Yeager Building, upstairs at the Natick Community Senior Center and inside Temple Israel. Additional works are at the Leonard Florence Center in Chelsea, the lobby of the Jackson School in Newton, the lobby of the McAuliffe Charter School in Framingham, the upper school hallway of the Jewish Community Day School in Watertown and in many individual homes.

The current TCAN exhibit, “Fabulous Faces in Translation," began in the summer of 2016 as a collaborative, creative, art adventure between Carol and collage artist Helen M. Salzberg. Many of the mosaic portraits in this exhibition are designed from enlarged versions of Helen's original collages, which are included in the exhibit. Carol is also excited to be partnering with Argentinian artist Graciela Fuenzalida, using her energetic designs as inspiration to create other colorful, fun and engaging mosaics.

All of the large mosaic portraits are created with individually cut, layered and fired fused glass elements, pieces of stained glass and colorful vitreous glass tiles. The glass pieces are first arranged on a full-sized colored cartoon, then transferred individually, adhered to backer board, grouted, and wired to be hung easily on a wall.

Carol‘s work can be viewed at and she can be reached by email at:
