A presence in the Canadian textile art world since 2002, Rice is known for her colour- filled, skillfully embellished, flowing, textile-based works. Rice’s innovative techniques and use of unusual materials mark her experimental artistic style. Guided by her faith and her connection to the natural world, Rice’s work is layered with spiritual and earthly themes.

Rice created the fourteen works for the “Seeing Visions, Dreaming Dreams” exhibit as an inspiration and guide for living harmoniously in the world around us. She describes the feeling of the show as “celebration balanced with contemplation.”

After an immensely popular showing at 2013’s “Sacred Stitches” event at St. James Cathedral, Curator & Archivist Nancy Mallett was inspired to bring Rice back for a solo exhibition of her work. “She is a gifted artist and we consider ourselves fortunate to again have the opportunity of showing her work here at the Cathedral” Mallett said.

The exhibit will be open Thursday, May 10, to Sunday, May 20, at St. James Cathedral (65
Church St, Toronto). Daily hours are 7:00am - 5:30pm, Sunday to Friday, and 9:00am - 5:00pm on Saturdays.

Rice will be on site for certain periods giving demonstrations and tours; visit The cathedral's website for dates and times. To arrange a private tour, please contact Nancy Mallett by email  or call 416-364-7865, ext *233.
