Plein Air Artist Henk Pander at the Laura Russo February 11, 2012

Artist Talks: Mel Katz and Henk Pander

Saturday, February 11, 2012, 11:00am - 1:00pm

Mel Katz will discuss the work in his newest exhibition of wall sculptures. Created from anodized aluminum and featuring bold shapes and bright colors, Katz's slyly humorous sculptures challenge the view that metal is unyielding and geometry impersonal.

Henk Pander will talk about the work in his latest exhibition, titled "Worlds Apart: Plein Air Watercolors". These paintings reveal seldom-seen lnadscapes from Oregon's forests and deserts, places of harsh terrain and wild beauty.

  1. You have to stand in front of these to really appreciate the power of Henk Pander's work. The size of these works is stunning. He's absolutely fearless and in total control. I could not find a single pencil line. Just paint. Bold strokes. Masterful use of color. What else can I say. He's awesome.

  2. Thanks for the review Chas, we'll be sure to go see this exhibit
