Exhibition with paintings by Ilona Nolte - 5 - 19 MarchJoie de vivre and diversity of life

Colourful, dynamic and always positive

That’s how you want your life to be and that’s how the paintings of the North Hessian artist Ilona Nolte are. Even in case things don’t always go as desired, the works of the North Hessian artist are a good-mood reserve. Nolte primarily shows women who feel good in their skin, who eat the cake, dance the tango and drop their clothes when they have a chat with their girlfriends in the sauna. But she also portrays men and shows celebrities whom she has captured with her very special brushstroke. She shines with her eye for the special moment in everyday life. Nolte’s pictures have recognition potential and draw attention to the beautiful, the cream factor in life, the colourful flowers, the bright colours. The common thread in all of this is the joie de vivre, the diversity, the appreciation she gives to every single person she paints, which also makes the viewers shine.

Personal details:

Ilona Nolte is sixty years old and lives and works in Berkatal in North Hesse. She came to painting herself during a strenuous phase in her life, when she was confronted with old age as a caring relative. Nolte is self-taught and sees herself as a “colour shaper”. Her paintings have already been exhibited many times and have both a high recognition value and a great degree of identification.


The opening event for the exhibition “Joie de vivre and diversity of life” will take place on 5 March at 3 pm in the Museum Barn in Alsfeld. Traudi Schlitt will give a lively introduction to the exhibition, and the artist will also be present. Music will be provided by the women’s combo “Evergreens” and, of course, refreshments will be served.

The exhibition is organised by an association of strong women in the Vogelsberg who are committed to culture, women’s issues and integration. This exhibition is also supported by the women’s work in the Evangelical Deanery of Vogelsberg and the Catholic Pastoral Area in Vogelsberg. The project is sponsored by TraVogelsberg and Demokratie Leben and from the Alsfeld History and Museum Society.

We would especially like to thank the Betriebsbauhof, the municipal building department, the property management and the TCA of the city of Alsfeld for their great support.
