Textile Arts Council lecture series presents –
Color Fields: Ikat, Tapestry & Contemporary Art
Saturday, May 16, 10:00 am
at the Koret Auditorium, deYoung Art Museum, San Francisco, CA
Join us in listening to WSN Member and ISS exhibiting artist Mary Zicafoose talk about her career path as a weaver, touching on stories of color origin, ethnic, traditional, and contemporary ikat design, textile travel, and her thoughts on the political landscape of tapestry in 21st Century contemporary art.
Ms. Zicafoose has worked, traveled and taught throughout the Americas. A largely self taught weaver, she received her BFA from St. Mary’s College, Notre Dame, Indiana. Her graduate Studies include the Art Institute of Chicago and the University of Nebraska. She credits her courage at the dye pot to the influence of painter Mark Rothko and her designs to every textile she has seen and touched.
She currently maintains a one-woman fiber studio in Omaha, Nebraska where she lives with her family.
