Lancaster Galleries 34 North Water Street Jeff Geib’s drawings are an intimate experience for the viewer. The subject, surface and materials used express his own interest and passion for the classical as well as the act of drawing itself. The work is smaller at first glance; as you begin to look, move closer, you find yourself engaged in the world as Jeff sees it. His work pays homage to modern masters like Jim Dine as well as old masters such as Ingres, Rembrandt, and Pieter Bruegel the Elder. We are pleased to have you view this “Small World” and look forward to sharing your experience.
