With an Individual Artists of Oklahoma exhibition just opened, Normal artist Kim Rice received an Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition Professional Basics Grant to help her prepare her work for display. 

After her first daughter was born just over a year ago, Rice changed the focus of her artwork from headlines and global issues to more intimate relationships of day to day happenings.  Her current work is inspired by the shape and design of the mandala.

Describing her work, Rice said, “The repetition of photographs gives a feeling of organization in chaos creating sacred space in everyday life.”  The title of her show is Revolve, and will be on display until December 16th. 

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
