series of fourteen linocuts from "Peter Grimes" formed
the backbone of James' first solo exhibition after leaving college,
which took place at Aldeburgh's Gallery 44 to coincide with
the 37th Festival in 1984. The linocuts were used to illustrate
the Festival catalogue in following years. The Britten-Pears
Library bought an entire set of the linocuts for their collection
at the Red House - and Peter Pears attended in person! The exhibition
not only featured James' prints but also his powerful paintings.
Since then James has frequently held exhibitions at Gallery
44 during the Aldeburgh Festival.
