Sixteen brush and ink drawings with accompanying bilingual text that documents how social reform is changing the lives of Latinos are on exhibit this month at the Davis Community Clinic.

The show, “Como Si Fuera Una Culebra/As If It Were A Serpent,” features the work of Henry Anker, a junior at Davis High School and a graphic artist for The HUB student newspaper. A reception in Anker’s honor will run from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 17, at the Davis Community Gallery at the clinic, 2051 John Jones Road.

Anker’s drawings and personal essays offer a teenager’s point of view on the social and cultural implications of health care. His line drawings and accompanying text show moments in which health care workers are building bridges — not barriers — by working with people who need them.

Anker is inspired by multicultural encounters through language, the physical contact of healing and through social gatherings based on the theme of wellness, a news release said. His project reaches people who have achieved different levels of literacy, as well as those who think in Spanish.

The exhibit pays tribute to the community that shaped who Anker is: the art community (Davis Art Center and Pence Gallery), the international community (César Chávez Elementary School, International House and Davis Religious Community for Sanctuary) and the educational community (Holmes Junior High and Davis High). All have given him artistic training, a sense of belonging and an education, the news release said.

Anker has received a Will Albrecht Young Adult Writers Award this year and has had a short story published in the Blue Moon literary review. In September, his art teacher, Ted Fontaine, nominated him as a Student of the Month, saying, “Henry truly fits the picture of a young artist…”

Anker also was inspired by a letter from President Obama when he received a President’s Award for Educational Excellence in March 2010. “As you step into the current of history, I encourage you to cultivate a love of learning, serve your community, and reach for your highest aspirations,” Obama wrote.
