Exhibition: Almost Vanishing Africa by Timothy Brooke, Feb. 29 – Mar. 29 2020 @ #16 Rosslyn Lone Tree


Opening: February 29, 2020
Venue: #16 Rosslyn Lone Tree

Until March 29, 2020

One Off is always delighted to hold an exhibition of spectacular paintings by veteran conservation artist, Timothy Brooke, who is undeniably ‘at the top of his game’ and painting like never before.

‘Almost vanishing Africa’ opens on 29th February. This show offers vignettes of a continent undergoing change so swiftly, that much of its natural wealth will shortly be a distant memory for us; something our grandchildren will only read about.

PRIVATE VIEW: Saturday, 29 February – 12 noon to 5 pm
