AN intricate mosaic which involved work by more than 100 members of the community will be officially launched by the mayor of Tavistock next week. The community mosaic takes pride of place outside the town?s pannier market. The project to create the work of art was spearheaded by the Tavistock Integrated Arts Group at the Molly Owen Centre and attracted funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Many individuals of all ages and abilities worked on the mosaic, helped by local artist Emma Spring, who ran several workshops during the creation of the artwork. The mosaic depicts prominent sites of archaeological and historical interest in Tavistock and ties in with last year?s celebration of the 900th anniversary of the granting of the town?s market charter. Helen McFarlane, senior community support officer at the Molly Owen Centre, thanked everyone involved in the project for their enthusiasm, time and effort in producing such a splendid work of art. ?A leaflet is being produced to identify the different sites which can all be found around Tavistock and are all marked with prominent heritage plaques,? added Helen. Progress of the project can be seen on a video produced by local photographer Tom Kiely, which is based at Tavistock Library. Everyone who has been involved in the production of the community mosaic is invited to attend the official launch on Friday June 23 at 2pm ? there will be refreshments afterwards at the Ordulph Arms in Tavistock.
