Treacy Ziegler

B. 1956

Treacy Ziegler, an exhibiting artist who has shown her art in Canada and United States, works in the mediums of paintings, sculpture, and printmaking.  She is the recipient of two Puffin Foundation awards for art in social justice, the Constance Saltonstall grant, Community Art Partnership grants, New Hampshire Percent Grant for the Arts and other awards. Ziegler has had several solo museum exhibitions including the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Cornell University, Ithaca; Arnot Art Museum, Elmira, NY; Morris Graves Museum of Art, Eureka, California; Massillon Museum, Massillon, Ohio.

Most recently, Ziegler had a year-long solo exhibition of bronze and paper cast animal sculptures at the Erie Art Museum, Erie PA (September 2020 through August, 2021).  This exhibition, expanding several galleries within the museum and two floors, presented a 12-foot paper cast giraffe.

Ziegler is currently participating in the traveling exhibition first presented at the MoMA PS1 in New York City. This exhibition, “Marking Time, Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration,” will travel to numerous venues over the next three years. She is the volunteer art director for the Prisoner Express and has taught art in prisons for the past 10 years.

Ziegler received a Certificate of Fine Art from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, Phila, PA. Prior to studying at PAFA, Ziegler received a MSW from University of Pennsylvania and a BS in mental health from Drexel University, PA.


   I have been making art for the past 25 years. Trained at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Philadelphia, for 4 years, I initially worked in painting and printmaking.  At the Academy, I developed monoprints incorporating lessons I learned through painting; thus allowing the prints to have the saturated color of painting.

   For the past 20 years I have lived in upstate New York on 85 wooded acres surrounded by nature with my husband, son, two parrots, and two dogs. Animals are a large part of my life. In addition to a taxidermy collection in my own studio, I have spent hours drawing at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and various natural history museums. Drawing is crucial in the development of art – observing the world and developing a dialogue with it through art.

   I am fortunate to have a studio large enough to work in the multi-medias of printmaking, painting, and sculpture; including two large presses and a bronze foundry. I began working in sculpture about three years ago. After drawing from life on a regular basis (and experiencing the roundness of living) my hand wanted to take a turn off the 2-dimensional world of painting into three dimensions of clay sculpture. I cast the clay into bronze myself, taking the process through every step of foundry – mold making, wax, ceramic shell, pouring the bronze, welding and patina.

   Before art school, I received a Masters in Social Work from the University of Pennsylvania. Nine years ago I began exhibiting my art and volunteer teaching in maximum-security prisons. In addition to teaching in-prison, I volunteer as the program director for the Prisoner Express, a through-the-mail distant learning program for prisoners. In this voluntary capacity, I develop art curriculums for 4000 prisoners across the United States representing every state and about 700 prisons.
