About Mary Zicafoose:
Mary Zicafoose creates tapestries, rugs and prints that are visually arresting as they are
emotionally intense. Largely a self-taught weaver, Zicafoose studied art through traditionally
formal media of painting and printmaking at St. Mary's College in South Bend, IN, The
University of Notre Dame and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and today creates
work based on archetypal textile symbols steeped in tradition and saturated with rich colors.

Zicafoose's work takes inspiration from modern abstractionists, and one can see the influence
of painters such as Mark Rothko in her signature large, bold color fields. Her seemingly
effortless blending of the ancient and the immediate results in textiles and works on paper that
span centuries of artistic tradition and situates them squarely within the contemporary visual
lexicon. In this regard, Zicafoose is not "just" a weaver; rather she is a textile artist who uses
fiber as her medium and a flat woven surface as her canvas.

Zicafoose's work is included in the collections of more than a dozen United States Embassy's
on four continents as well as museums and corporate and private collections throughout the
world. She has lived in Omaha for the last 16 years, where she operates as a one woman studio.
