Mary Zeran was raised in a family of women artists whose textiles, embroidery, and woodcarvings, existed as their visual language; enigmatic shapes and forms were their words. Each time she picks up a brush or scissors she immerses herself in the language of her family, which brings her ever closer to their traditions, histories, and stories.

This exhibition marks a turning point in Zeran’s artwork- an introduction to her ceramic sculptures and a fresh path in her paintings; working in monoprinting, collage, and her signature acrylic work on duralar.

Mary Zeran received her B.F.A and M.F.A from University of Iowa. She was born in Iowa City in 1964 and now lives and works in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. She is the recipient of several awards and honors and her works are in numerous public and private collections as well as many notable corporate collections. Her collage works have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in galleries and museums throughout the United States and abroad including the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art; Sherry Leedy Contemporary Art, in Kansas City; SOIL Gallery in Seattle; Higher Art Gallery in Michigan; and Chaing Mai University in Chaing Mai, Thailand.

A reception will be held at the gallery December 2, 2022 from 5:00-7:30pm. "The Ancient Healing Properties" is on view in our Main Gallery space on the first floor. Our second floor gallery is currently showing Holiday Shop artworks under $500. For more information visit–or- call: 319-366-0205
