Artists LILLIAN SIZEMORE and VANESSA SOMERS gave presentations at San Francisco's Legion of Honor, each providing personal reflections on life in Roman era Israel, as revealed by an extraordinary example of mosaic art, then on display. Both artists' studio practices are influenced by their study - in very distinctive ways. Vanessa also presented her Asaroton (Unswept Floor), an adaption of an ancient theme.
