Merry Mosaic Studio 

Rock Hill Parks, Recreation and Tourism (PRT) announces a new initiative, the Merry Mosaic Studio, a dedicated space where artists of all abilities in PRT’s therapeutic art programs can create and sell artwork year-round.  The Merry Mosaic Studio is located at Boyd Hill Center, 1165 Constitution Blvd. Handmade items on display and for sale include photo and painted tiles, photography, hand built and wheel pottery, silk scarves and watercolor paintings.  

Artwork can be purchased at the Studio during Boyd Hill Center’s office hours, Monday – Friday 9AM – 5PM.  Evening and Saturday hours are available by request. Proceeds will go to the individual artists and to support PRT therapeutic art programs.  Contact Wendy Waddle at 803-329-5659 or email wendy.waddle@cityofrockhill.com with questions.
