Santa Fe Community College Visual Arts Gallery presents the art exhibition, “The SPELL: The Magic of Words and Imagery,” which opens with a reception from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday, October 6 in the gallery at 6401 Richards Avenue. The exhibition features the artwork of more than two dozen women from Santa Fe who work in diverse media and runs through Thursday, December 8.

Director of Art on Campus Linda Cassel said, “We have an incredible mix of talented artists who will show work. They are all sharing art that reflects the theme. The artists have had fun with the multiple meanings of ‘The SPELL’ in the sense of words and the alphabet, as well as the magical theme of casting a spell.”

The exhibition statement: “The words and imagery we project daily intentionally or unintentionally are powerful. They have the energy and ability to help, heal, hinder, hurt, and encourage. Our words and images create our reality or the reality of others. In this time and space, we can make a difference by evoking a SPELL of hope and possibilities beyond our fondest dreams.”

The following artists will participate: Fairley Barnes, Ilse Bolle, Rebecca Bradshaw, Ro Calhoun, Linda Cassel, Julie Catron, Meg Davenport, Monique de Nys, Rose Driscoll, Alexandra Eldridge, Willi Haye, Christy Hengst, Marjo Hébert, Elizabeth Hunt, Ann Laser, Marietta Leis, Susan Ohori, Kate O’Neill, Amy Parrish. Patricia Pearce, Margaret Peters, Joany Raina, Diane Rolnick, Miriam Sagan, Penny Truitt, Suzanne Vilmain, DeeAnne Wagner, Erika Wanenmacher and Isabel Winson-Sagan.

The Santa Fe Visual Arts Gallery is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday on the campus, 6401 Richards Avenue.
