Amy Zerner: Selected Exhibitions & Awards

 

Amy Zerner is the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Visual Artist's Fellowship Grant in the Category

of Painting for her fabric collage tapestries. She attended Pratt Institute and makes her home in East Hampton, NY, where she lives with her author/photographer husband, Monte Farber. 

 

Amy has sold her one-of-a-kind jackets, coats and caftans in Bergdorf Goodman for 16 years, where she has her own rack of one-of-a-kind couture creations in the Evening Department. She has also shown at Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue stores.

 

Her tapestries and art couture have been included in the collections of many prominent individuals, with Oprah, Shirley MacLaine, Dame Elizabeth Taylor, Rhianna, Goldie Hawn, Patti LaBelle, Martha Stewart and Michael J. Fox among them. Here work is in the collection of Caswell-Massey and New York City Technical College.

 

Bridging the gap between fine art and fine craft, Zerner's collage tapestries and art-to-wear have been shown in many one-woman gallery and museum shows. A review in the New York Times said, "Amy Zerner draws on the zodiac, tarot cards, Eastern deities, and classical mythology to create elaborate and highly decorative fabric collages that imply a fundamental unity of spiritual experience". 

Amy Zerner's tapestry collages appear throughout the forty-six popular books, meditation kits and oracles she has co-created with her husband, with more than two million copies in print around the world in fourteen languages.
