Lyman was an artist and wildlife enthusiast who specialized in painting the most elusive moments in nature. His love of the 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, California, where he graduated with top honors. He returned to Idaho and spent two years exploring and developing his style of painting.
The LCSC Center for Arts & History is located at 415 Main Street in downtown Lewiston. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. - 4 p.m, Tuesday - Saturday. Admission is free and donations are welcome.
