“She responds to art on so many levels from the top of her head clear down to her feet. She can be highly intellectual and very basic. Her questions pulled me in so many interesting directions relative to different moments in my life. She caused me to make a few connections with the past that I have never thought of. I loved meeting with her.”
— Eve Ingalls, artist
“(Ilene has) the ability to empower people to imagine, visually, and the ability to show them what to look for. These are rare gifts. They’re what arts criticism is really all about – not gate keeping , but gate opening.”
— Michael Redmond, editor/critic
