Something Fun For Everyone

The MOSAICS Fine Art Festival concentrates on high-quality art, education, and community involvement opportunities. Over the past 27 years, MOSAICS continues to grow as the premier professional arts festival held in St. Charles County and is a registered nonprofit 501 c (3) status organization with the State of Missouri.

To enhance the overall Festival experience for all attendees, the “H. Robert Pank Memorial Entertainment Pavilion/Stage” provides musical talent and LIVE entertainment for everyone of all ages.

Parents, we’ve postponed the Children’s Village tent which includes a kids creation station for kids 14 and under to explore art through a variety of mediums, in order to preserve the safety of the children during the pandemic; and the Art Shop for Kids where children can purchase fine art donated by participating MOSAICS artists at a nominal cost.  At the Art Shop for Kids, we will only be allowing 1 or 2 children in the tent at a time in order to keep the children safe through social distancing.

Joyce Rosen Founders Scholarships

For the 25th Anniversary, the Festival board of directors introduced the inaugural Joyce Rosen Founders Scholarships for high school artists. The 2019 Scholarship winners are:

  • 1st Place – Brian Dunagan – Christian High School – 10th grade

  • 2nd Place – Clarice Bartel – Fort Zumwalt North High School – Spring 2019 graduate

  • 3rd Place – Evelyn Schmidt – Lutheran High School – Spring 2019 graduate

  • 4th Place – Charlotte Davis – Timberland High School – 12th grade

  • Honorable Mention – Isabella Tomaszewski – Timberland High School – 12th grade

Funding for these scholarships was generated from generous supporters who donated via the St. Louis Community Foundation’s “Give Stl Day” event.

We will be sponsoring a Give Stl Day again this year, and while we will not be holding the Joyce Rosen Foundation Scholarship exhibit at the 2021 festival*, it will return in 2022.  Please feel free to donate and your funds will be used toward next years recipients.

*Due to COVID and the extra work load it has added to our local teachers, we decided it was best to not put further stress on them in trying to organize and gather art for the festival exhibit.

Mosaics ArtSafe Safety Plan

As a local digital art photographer, participating the Mosaics Fine Art Festival continues to elevate my career. The festival allows me a venue to display my work in the Historic Downtown St. Charles. Due to the quality of the juried artists and craftsmanship of the Festival, I continue to gain customers and friendships from throughout the region. I look forward to participating in the Mosaics Fine Arts Festival each year and hope to be selected to do so for many years to come.
Joe Kopp, Artist
Mosaics Fine Art Festival is my favorite fair to do each year. The customers are fantastic and have discerning taste - several people have commissioned work from me. Last year I had my highest sales of the year at MOSAICS. I can't say enough good things about the fair organizers; I've never been in a fair where the artists are so well taken care of. Providing meals and even delivering them to the artists is wonderful, especially for someone who does fairs alone and really can't leave the booth. There are lots of volunteers to help with booth sitting when a break is necessary. One of my favorite things is the volunteers who help with take down and packing up. Since I'm alone, the volunteers cut down my time by 1 to 2 hours

Outstanding show! My best for 2018! Excellent dinners delivered to your booth, cold water delivered all during the show and booth sitters when you need a break. This show has buyers!

This is one of my favorite events of the year. Artists and artisans cover a wide array of media: Painters, photographers, ceramics, wood, stone, metalwork, mixed media, art jewelry, leather-work, glass, and all! Not only is the variety of arts so full, but this is one of the largest Art Fairs for a large radius of several hours driving time.
Ted Meyer, Artist
I have attended the Mosaics-Missouri Festival for the Arts for many years, I think it's one of the coolest art festivals in the state. This year I am an exhibitor! I never dreamed that I would be IN this show, But I made it through jury I'm so excited and grateful, to be included in the company 100 amazing artists!
Maggie Biesiada-Lowe, Artist
I love it. Its a great way for young artists to venture into the art world. It has various artist w different cultures and mediums. This is also an amazing bonding experience for a family. AFTER Viewing different art you can do hands-on projects in the Children's Village and go get a cheap tasty bite within a 5 min walk.
