Jim Lukens

Jim Lukens was schooled at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and Barnstone Studios, Jim's work is viewed and collected as a quintessential addition to the area's vibrant art scene.

After years of forays, Lukens settled in Richland Township, Upper Bucks County, Pennsylvania where he maintains a home and studio.

For a decade, he has been represented by Chapman Gallery of Doylestown, PA. He has generously opened his heart and expertise to teach students from beginning to the familiar in the techniques of oil painting, encouraging them to embrace their own style. On November 4, 2017, he opened the Main Street Gallery in Quakertown where patrons can view his selected works and the work of his students.

Jim was thrilled to be invited to be the Featured Artist for the 2020 Holiday Soiree and Auction.
