Friday, October 7-Friday, November 25 original watercolors on paper depicting floral still life in various states of bloom by Arnold Pander are the subject of the exhibit, “Anthesis,” at Pushdot Studio Gallery.
The passing of Pander’s mother in 2016 took him to a very reflective place and his artwork took an inward turn. He was submerged into the sensual and fragile creative medium of watercolor. With each new series of works in this pigment-based, traditional art form, he exercised his mind and soul. The process took him from a state of mourning to a place of healing and also allowed Pander to find a new language in which to create.
Pushdot is located at 2505 SE 11th Ave,, Suite 104 in the Ford Building, open Monday-Friday 8:30 am-5 pm.
