“Entwined: Memory, Experience, Serendipity” by Ilse Bolle Sept. 14 – Oct. 11

September 15, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

The exhibition featuring the art of Ilse Bolle continues through Oct. 11

Santa Fe Community College Visual Arts Gallery opens the art exhibition, “Entwined: Memory, Experience, Serendipity” featuring the art of Ilse Bolle, with a reception from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 14. The public is welcome to attend the free reception with refreshments at the Visual Arts Gallery, 6401 Richards Avenue. The exhibition continues through Oct. 11.

Ilse Bolle’s fiber constructions are a fascinating combination of mixed media and sculpture. Bolle uses paper she makes by hand, twigs she harvests from the local landscape and waxed linen thread, which she uses to construct a simple, strong sculptural form. Found pieces of rusted metal, ubiquitous in the arroyos around Santa Fe, are then added to the composition. The juxtaposition of natural and man-made elements creates a remarkably earthy, stable beauty. At the same time, Bolle’s work maintains an aesthetic that captures and releases an emotional reaction.
