Kim Rice earned her BFA in Sculpture and her MFA in Printmaking at the
University of Oklahoma. Fluctuating between 2D and 3D forms, Rice weaves
from the detritus of daily life. Her love of ordinary materials goes back
to her childhood memories of drawing on junk mail and brown paper
bags. Her influences are contemporary artists exploring race, the pile of
books by her bed and her two children.
Her work has been exhibited across the Midwest and South as well as in
Valencia Spain. Her work on Whiteness was featured in the 19th Annual No
Dead Artist exhibit at the Jonathan Ferrera Gallery in New Orleans and
reviewed in Art Focus Oklahoma. She has received numerous awards including
the Norman Arts Council Art Fellowship and Honorarium, The McNeese Grant
for Socially Engaged Practice and the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition
Professional Artist Grant.
Kim Rice currently resides in Norman, Oklahoma with her family.
