Building Memories Art Exhibition
Recent Watercolors by Henk Pander
Sunday, June 2nd, Noon – 6:00 p.m.
Originally from the Netherlands, Henk Pander was a child during WWII. Since immigrating to the Pacific Northwest in 1965, he has become one of the region’s most renowned artists. This series of large format watercolors about the Vanport Flood and Nazi-occupied Amsterdam invites us to reflect on the invisible histories held by buildings, streets, and empty places. What is the danger of forgetting? See the exhibition at Cerimon House, 5131 NE 23rd Ave, 97211.
Note: The ADA ramp access is located on the front of the building (left side, facing the front doors, by the bike shelter).
