Art alum Helen White will exhibit works in the Alexander Gallery at Clackamas Community College in November 2012.
The exhibition opens Tuesday, November 13. An artist's reception will take place on Thursday, November 15, from 12 noon to 1:30 p.m. in the gallery.
Now and Again is an exhibition of approximately 20 works made with acrylic paint, ink, found papers, wooden boards and found objects. In this body of work, White explores past histories and current situations.

The Alexander Gallery is located in the Niemeyer Center at Clackamas Community College.
It is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to
