These experiences will be discussed through the lens of how her own tapestry practice has changed through the years.

About the Speaker: Mary Lane HeadshotMary Lane is an artist and art historian. She began weaving tapestry in 1976 and in 1982 became a founding member of the Scheuer Tapestry Studio in New York City. Her tapestries have been published and exhibited internationally and have been collected by both private and corporate art collections, including the IBM Corporation, the State of Maine, the City of Seattle, the Regional Arts and Culture Council, the Northland Investment Corporation and Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital. Her teaching experience includes Parsons School of Design, the University of Maine and The Evergreen State College. Lane’s writing on contemporary textiles has been published widely. Speaking of her work she says, “ My work in tapestry is both large and small scale. I enjoy the monumental work for its historical reference and its embracing warmth. Miniature work attracts me with its intimacy and relative freedom. Both kinds of work offer an expressive medium to develop my ideas.” She is retired from her position of Executive Director with the American Tapestry Alliance.
