40 Years of Energy opens Friday! I couldn't be more excited to offer this rare opportunity to see work that spans James Brook's entire life. The back of the gallery begins with artwork he created as early as one year old, and ends with his most recent work, childhood drawings re-interpreted as large scale paintings.  James lives and works in Intercourse, PA with his family, but is originally from England. Not only is James talented, he is truly a wonderful person. We are so lucky to have him in Lancaster!  See you Friday! #jamesbrook #40yearsofenergy #lancartscsene #gallerylife #installationalmostcomplete #painting #drawing #retrospective #discoverlancaster #figlancaster #sunshineartdesign @jamesbrook111 Keepin cool with an Iced Italiano!  Espresso and raw sugar, shaken with ice, then served ice cold! Refreshing and hi-octane 😁 This could be dangerous! Barbaret is opening right across the street from the studio today! #Repost @figlancaster with @repostapp.
