Stephen Lyman Children's Art Exhibit opens April 1
The LCSC Center for Arts & History’s display of the Stephen Lyman Memorial Children’s Art Exhibit runs through the month of April.
This is one of the Dogwood Festival’s oldest events, held in honor of the late Stephen Lyman who passed away in 1996 after a hiking accident.
Lyman was an artist and wildlife enthusiast who specialized in painting the most elusive moments in nature. His love of the great outdoors stemmed from his childhood spent in the Pacific Northwest where hiking in the Snake River area was a regular family occurrence.
Lyman was born in Idaho in 1957. At the age of five, his family moved to Lewiston where he attended Whitman and Webster schools. He went on to Jenifer Junior High and later graduated valedictorian of Lewiston High School in 1975. Upon graduation he enrolled in the Art Center School of Design in Pasadena, Calif., where he graduated with top honors. He returned to Idaho and spent two years exploring and developing his style of painting.
The children’s artwork will be on display until April 30. It featured dogwood themed art from local artists in Kindergarten through 6th grade. The exhibit is shared with the Junior High Art show and is being displayed up the stairway and onto the second floor of the Center for Arts and History. Participating students will receive certificates for their art.
The Center is located at 415 Main Street, downtown Lewiston. Gallery hours are 11-4 Tues.- Sat.
The galleries are closed Sunday and Monday. Public admission is free and donations are welcome.
