Mary Zeran's signature body of work is in the medium of collage. Scraps and swatches are methodically collected in flat files and spread out on her table when assembling. There's even a "closet" filled with large painted sheaths organized in a pleasing spectrum of colors.
During the first wave of lockdowns from the pandemic, Mary needed a larger space to create her installation for Mary Zeran: 10 Years at the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art. Although we couldn't take a peek for ourselves, Mary shared some photos and video of the temporary studio upgrade. Here you can see scaling up and using newly created tools to do so.
