Current Exhibition

The Ordeal by Henk Pander

"THE ORDEAL" by Henk Pander

Jan. 3-31, 2023

The Alexander Gallery is pleased to present "THE ORDEAL," an exhibition of large-scale paintings and drawings by Portland-based Dutch artist, Henk Pander. This exhibition runs Jan. 3-31. An artist reception will be held Thursday, Jan. 19, noon-1 p.m. and Pander will speak about his work at 1 p.m. "THE ORDEAL" showcases over a dozen compositions that survey recent explorations of Pander's artistic practice, calling attention to American technology, materialism and disaster. In these works, Pander draws inspiration from personal memory and the history of art to create compositions that embrace color and mark-making.

Pander's work has been recognized internationally and supported by the Regional Arts and Culture Council, a state of Oregon Governor's Award for the Arts, and a master fellowship in painting from the Oregon Arts Commission. For further information about this exhibition, contact Kate Simmons at 503-594-3032 or kates@clackamas.edu. The Alexander Gallery is located in the Niemeyer Center at Clackamas Community College. The gallery is open Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. with the exception of campus holidays. Admission is free.
