Bridging the gap between fine art and fine craft, Zerner's collage tapestries and art-to-wear have been shown in more the eighty one-woman gallery and museum shows. She has been the recipient of many awards, including a National Endowment for the Arts grant. 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."
She uses gorgeous couture fabrics mixed with an appliquéd palette of beaded materials, embroidered ribbons and trims, hand painted and dyed fabrics and vintage textiles to make her worlds of wonder rich with layers of myth and imagination. She gathers these items from all over the world—French high fashion silks, 18th century English brocades, Japanese kimonos—and the hundreds of patterns, colors and textures of these exotic elements are incorporated to convey the many details and complexities of life and nature. The artist’s work is filled with spiritual gardens, goddesses and sacred sanctuaries. The materials are lush and detailed with the overall result being a piece of art made opulent with a beautiful mix of magic and meaning.
