Mary Zicafoose is one of five Americans to have work in the 13th International Triennial of Tapestry, May 10 - October 31 at the Central Museum of Textiles in Lodz, Poland. . . . “Blue Print”, an ikat triptych . . . [is] part of her series exploring and referencing personal identity. It contains the fingerprints of the couple who commissioned it, entailing tying and untying almost 60,000 knots for the ikat panels.

Pam Patrie installed “Horace Poem”, her new tapestry illustrating a poem by the Roman poet Horace, in a private home in Oregon. . . . Pam worked at 8 epi and used cotton, wool, and a simple acrylic white knitting yarn that someone left at her cabin. She says it is so white and slightly sparkly that it just had to be the snow on the roof of the house.
