Lichen #4 by Rhonda Harder Epp, Courtesy Mennonite Heritage Gallery

Starts June 15

Two artists exhibit work related to memory and nostalgia at the Mennonite Heritage Gallery. Parvin Shere’s Journey is a sentimental look at her life and travels and includes paintings of Venice and of her late husband Waris. In Scenes from Childhood by Rhonda Harder Epp, paintings and drawings are inspired by Robert Schumann’s Scenes from Childhood for piano, Op.15, where objects such as buttons and Cheerios are applied onto a white canvas to evoke youth. Epp’s second exhibit, The Lichen Project, features paper that is cut and layered (pictured) to create the texture of this slow-growing plant that shares a symbiotic relationship with other plant life. 600 Shaftesbury Blvd, 204‑888-6781
