NOTICE>>> RECEPTION at NYM Culture Center has been rescheduled for the 28th of May from 6 to 8 pm. My apologies if this causes any inconvenience.
“Expressions of a Sami Heritage”, an
exhibit of Kayleen’s new oil paintings,
continues through Saturday, May 31. “No matter what or how I paint, the
destination is the same. A relative moment of closure and of feeling
complete.” Her expressive oil portraits invite your exploration as she interprets her heritage. A
reception honoring Kayleen will be hosted at the New York Mills Regional Cultural Center on Tuesday, May
13th from 6-8:30 pm. The center is open Tuesday – Friday 10:00 am to 5:00 pm and on Saturday – 10:00 am to 3:00 pm
Kayleen Horsma is a fiscal year 2013 recipient of an Artist
Initiative grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board; This activity is
made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the
Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from

Individual Artist grant in 2014 from the McKnight Foundation.
'I am so grateful, and would like to give a
round of applause for the local support and instrumental assistance to
fulfill portions of the granting programs. A collection of my work will
be displayed at the First National Bank of
Menahga for a short period following the solo at the center and also to
the West Central Alliance, whose assistance saved me both
time and money. Thank you both for the support of my work, as well the arts. '
