May 17th: Mary Zicafoose Tapestries

We welcome renowned fiber artist Mary Zicafoose to our May 17th meeting.

For over two decades, international textile artist Mary Zicafoose has been creating tapestries and rugs that are as rich in color as they are in symbolic content. Her work is included in private and public collections that span the globe, including U.S. Embassies on three continents. The artist’ practice and processes reflect superb craftsmanship as well as her ability to articulate a brilliant contemporary vernacular based on color. Her woven pieces blend cultural icons, images and symbols with an unabashed hand, creating powerful visual statements in fiber. Zicafoose maintains a one-woman fiber studio in Omaha, NE where she lives with her family.
