Minneapolis based artist/educator Marjorie Fedyszyn (she/hers) combines the knowledge of her first career as a scenic artist for theater with her deep reverence for materials and technique. Using traditional craft techniques she creates abstract forms and installations rooted in fiber art. Her studio practice is in the historic Casket Arts Building in NE Minneapolis where she creates sculptures, paintings, drawings and installation art.
Fedyszyn has been awarded numerous grants and fellowships through the Jerome Foundation, Minnesota State Arts Board and Metropolitan Regional Arts Council. Her work has been exhibited and collected both nationally and regionally. She is a founding member of the MN Felt Makers Guild and the artist collective, SD8. Her affiliation with arts organizations include Artistry, North American Handmade Paper Makers, Surface Design Association, MN Center for Book Arts and Textile Center of MN.
