From Life: 27 February – 26 March
Reception: Saturday, 27 February, 5 – 7pm
We are seeking submissions for the exhibition “From Life”. The show links into Clatsop Community College’s “Au Naturel” show. Submissions should be observational drawing, painting or mixed media works of people. Artists may use photography as reference or in innovative ways, but the emphasis of this show is on observational drawing and painting… ‘from life’. Further details of this open submission show can be found on the Call For Work page.
The show will also feature selected works by the artist Henk Pander, who will be the jurer for this exhibition. The Dutch artist Henk Pander arrived in Portland in 1965 and, except for brief periods, has lived there ever since, creating works that challenge status quo modern art of the Pacific Northwest. Henk Pander’s works are in many collections, including those of the Rijksmuseum (Amsterdam), Museum Henriette Polak (Zutphen, The Netherlands), City of Amsterdam, City of Portland, Jet Propulsion Laboratory (Pasadena), Portland Art Museum, Frye Art Museum (Seattle), Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art (University of Oregon), and Hallie Ford Museum of Art (Willamette University), where a fifty-year retrospective exhibition of his work was shown in 2011. His public commissions are at Oregon State University, Oregon Public Safety Academy (Salem), Portland Center for the Visual Arts, and numerous other locations.
