Sally Chiu: Purple and Red
2016, oil on canvas
Freeform Art Space, 1619 C de Baca Lane, 505- 692-9249 Ilse Bolle and Sally Chiu: Layers in Time opens Saturday, May 7, with a 4 p.m. reception. This artist- curated exhibition includes handmade paper and mixedmedia sculpture, encaustic works, and oil paintings. Chiu’s multilayered, color-saturated abstractions are inspired by the colors of exposed walls encountered in her travels in India and Mexico. Bolle’s sculptures combine found objects, sticks of willow and tamarisk, tree bark, seed pods, and other items from nature. “I strive for simple, yet strong forms, always working with the natural color of the materials,” she writes on her website. The reception for Layers in Time includes live music by Jerry Weimer and Mario Febres.
