Made by X > Kelsey Brookes

Wednesday, Sep 27, 2017 - 6:30 PM-8:00 PM
Kelsey Brookes is a former biochemist who attributes his style to an education system “that refuses to teach scientists to draw.” Brookes’s background in biochemistry has contributed to his crossover success, even as his natural talent guides his practice. As a painter (pop, abstract or traditional), he melds media and ideas, much as a chemist works in the lab. Join Brookes for cocktails and lively  conversation as we take an artistic foray into the Fibonacci Sequence, the mathematical principle that is the inspiration for Kelsey’s current work and an idea he invites participants to examine through artistic expression.
