Local Artist Anna Marie Boles to Display Works at Rosenthal Gallery from Oct. 29 to Dec. 6

2002. 10. 18.

CALDWELL, ID An exhibit of artworks by Anna Marie Boles, entitled ]'Inscribing Location,' will be featured from Oct. 29 to Dec. 6 at the Rosenthal Gallery of Art on the Albertson College of Idaho campus.

The opening reception is set for Oct. 29 from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the gallery. The reception is free and open to the public.

The exhibition will feature three-dimensional multi-media constructions. Inspired by the rectangular survey measures/grids set forth in the Ordinance of 1785, one series of artworks includes acrylic constructions that act as vehicles for sculpturally exploring the intricacies of western landscape and issues.

A second series, landscape works using wooden segments, expands the notion of cartography. Pierced rectangular segments are connected with wire or rope, exploring progressions of time, duration, and travel. Accompanying the sculptural works is a series of pastel landscape studies.

Boles grew up in Idaho on the site of her grandparents' homestead south of Hansen and has traveled with theater troupes, read palms and taught small engine repair. Her artwork has been featured in exhibitions in Oregon, Idaho, California, Vermont, Massachusetts and New York. A graduate of Albertson College of Idaho, Boles earned an MFA in visual art from Vermont College of Norwich University (Vt.). Currently, she is the director of the Whittenberger Writing Project.

The Rosenthal Gallery of Art is located on the Albertson College of Idaho campus and is open from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesday through Saturday, or by appointment. Admission is free.
