WSN Member Mary Zicafoose has recently made the news for her involvement and curation of the FIBER collective exhibitions at the KANEKO. Not only was a she a major force in organizing the 6 exhibitions, her artwork is included in Fiber Legends, 1 of 6 exhibitions on view. Mary is also the co-director of the American Tapestry Alliance, which has it’s own exhibition at the KANEKO, American Tapestry Biennial.

A full article, published by omaha.com/go, interviews Mary about her own fateful path to becoming an artist and what lead her to choose the medium of tapestry weaving. The article also overviews the pieces in the exhibitions she helped curate:
