For the past 22 years, Mary Zicafoose has worked, traveled and taught through out the Americas. A largely self-taught weaver, Zicafoose received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from St. Mary’s College, Notre Dame, Indiana. Her graduate studies include the Art Institute of Chicago and the University of Nebraska. She currently maintains her one-woman fiber studio in Omaha.
According to Zicafoose, “I create contemporary tapestry, pushing the boundary of this ancient art form, to investigate the intricacies of how we, as individuals, are tied to one another. The complexity and uncharted potential of warp and weft - combined with the alchemy of color compositions and archetypal symbols - reference the elaborate and intricate patterns of our lives and my work.
