Welcome to My World
Lehman will give a live demonstration of his artistic
techniques during Boone’s First Friday Downtown Art Crawl at the Turchin Center for the Visual Arts.
The demonstration is scheduled for Friday, Dec. 2 between 6 and 9 p.m. in the Community Gallery.
Lehman will attempt to complete a painting from start to finish in three hours. Guests are invited to take in the entire process or drop in for a few minutes.
When the painting is completed, the Turchin Center will host a silent auction for the piece until 6 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 3. Proceeds from the silent auction will hot to the Turchin Center’s Outreach Program, serving at-risk youth, homeless children and disadvantaged adults.
Born in North Dakota and raised in the Midwest, Lehman first became interested in arts as a child. After high school, however, he started his own business installing flooring and had not been involved in the art-making process for over a decade.
Later he moved to Carolina and rediscovered his love of art. He creates whimsical scenes of long-limbed humans and fantastical landscapes.
“One of my objectives for my art is to encourage people to keep their childlike wonder and adventure by sharing my own imagination through painting,” said Lehman.
In addition to being a visual artist, Lehman is also an accomplished musician who is new to the area.
