Amy Zerner’s work, ancient as well as modern in its cross-cultural sweep, is ultimately a sacred art. From September 21 through 30, “Enchanted Worlds: The Spiritual Collages & Tapestries of Amy Zerner” will be on view at MM Fine Art in Southampton.

The exhibition opens with a reception on Saturday, September 21, from 6 to 8 p.m.

Not only does Zerner create mystical dreamscape tapestries — she also designs art-adorned Spiritual Couture apparel, which she has sold exclusively through Bergdorf Goodman for 20 years. Each tapestry, collage, or garment is amazing in detail and needs to be carefully studied to absorb the power of the entire composition. Her images and jackets emerge out of the build-up and, in the end, reveal a picture that is powerfully evocative of dreams, memories, stories, and longings.

Zerner’s work is filled with meditative gardens, powerful goddesses and healing sanctuaries. The materials are luxe, lush and detailed with the overall result being a piece of art or wearable world made opulent with many layers of magic and meaning. Her art is also the basis for numerous best-selling mind/body/spirit books she has produced with her husband, Monte Farber. These include the coffee-table art book “Paradise Found: The Visionary art of Amy Zerner,” “The Enchanted Tarot,” and many more, with over three million copies in print in 17 languages. Some original pieces from her books will be included in the exhibition.

MM Fine Art is located at 4 North Main Street, Southampton. For more details, call 631-259-2274 or email info@mmfineart.com.
