Summer Zickefoose is an interdisciplinary artist who currently resides in Ohio. She grew up amidst the square miles and cornfields of Iowa. The smells of fresh cut hay, horse manure, and hog pens lodged permanently in her subconscious have, in one way or another, led to artwork that is deeply influenced by Midwestern and rural American culture and landscape. Zickefoose received degrees in both Art History and Studio Art from the University of Iowa in 2000, and in 2004 received a MFA in Multimedia Art and Ceramics from the University of Florida. Her objects, performances, videos, and installations have been exhibited nationally, most notably at the Athens Institute for Contemporary Art in Athens, Georgia and the New Harmony Gallery for Contemporary Art in New Harmony, Indiana. Summer will also be an artist-in-residence at Flaxart Studios in Belfast, Northern Ireland this summer and fall.
