Robbins “Pieces” is a complete experience in mosaics

Laura Robbins mosaics greet those entering Placitas, and they delight us at the Range Café. She has worked full time as mosaic muralist for a long time, but this is her first solo show at a gallery.

Her show drew a huge crowd and the gallery was packed all evening long.

Several pieces found a home and not just her flower sculptures that fits in a yard and only costs $ 100.

And, this artist brought everything AND the kitchen sink. Her grey water piece is a full blown installation of a kitchen counter, complete with windows, curtain, dishes, plumbing, and yes, the kitchen sink. All of it is made out of clay or glass. If you like work that breaks the mold, don’t miss this show. It will run through August 28. \
