I posted earlier on this blog about Tim Shue’s art IN the garden. Now I want to talk about art FROM the garden! Lehman’s has a long history of providing support and products for gardeners and now, thanks to Larry and Deby Welty, there will be art from the garden in the form of painted gourds. The Welty’s are busy carving and painting a whole assortment of gourds that can be used for decorative bird house, bird feeders and home decor. You will even have an opportunity to try your hand at painting a gourd under Deby’s helpful instruction. To read more about gourd painting as well as what the other 12 participating artists will be demonstrating and selling at Lehman’s Local Artisan Festival on July 12th go to

About Sue Steiner

I am a professional artist living in the Kidron area. With a farming background and my love for animals and anything agricultural it was a natural fit when Lehman's asked me to paint the murals you see at the Kidron store. My biggest project to date was the mural of a life sized team of Amish work horses at the hitching post in the Buggy barn. I have the pleasure of adding to the murals on an ongoing basis as a painting demonstration during store hours on many Fridays. I also have the pleausre of bringing Ohio Arts and Crafts Guild members to the store for a wide variety of demos. You can find the demo schedule on this web site under the Events tab. It is always a pleasure to be in the store meeting new folks. I find Lehman's customers to be the very best, down to earth people! It is also my pleasure to help network with all the talented artists and crafters in the area.
