Join Jeff Broekhoven during the opening reception for his upcoming show titled Rhumb Line, Paintings from 2010-17 during First Friday Art Walk on March 3, 2017 from 5-8pm, featuring a curated set of paintings made between 2010-2017. Help celebrate his return to where it all started (his painting career began at Drury in 2010). Early work will be re-exhibited alongside newer work, and many of the paintings will be shown together for the first time in hopes of connecting the dots to reveal an imaginary line plotting the course of studio practice.
