Tulsa artist Margaret Aycock will display her artwork at the Oklahoma State Capitol Galleries next summer. She will begin a new collection to highlight what she sees as the beautiful landscapes of Oklahoma. 

With plans to travel to different areas of the state, Aycock received an Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition Creative Project Grant to help her with travel expenses and physically preparing her work for presentation.

Aycock grew up in the Catskills and Adirondack Mountains of New York and said, “It took me years to appreciate Oklahoma’s beauty but now I find my ocean in the tall grass prairie and my green mountains have been replaced by the pink, rocky boulders of Quartz and Wichita Mountains.”

The Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition invests in artists’ project through grants for growing careers, creative projects and exceptional continuing education. The next application deadline is January 15. Find guidelines and application here
