Local Artists and Crafters

 

Wool Rug Hooking by 3 Sister's Wool

 

My name is Sue Steiner.  I am an animal artist and for the last couple years I’ve been painting farm animal murals in the Buggy Barn at Lehman’s.   I also help with scheduling arts and crafts demos at the store.   I wanted to share with you some photos taken at Lehman’s during the second annual Local Artisan Festival on July 11th.   By the looks of the crowd and the smiles on people’s faces this is the beginning of a really interesting and enjoyable regular yearly event!   The visitors to the store not only enjoyed the arts and crafts demos but also lively music, good food, good company and gardening advise !  What’s not to love about that? 

During this event we gathered together local artists and crafters thru the Ohio Arts and Crafts Guild to put on demonstrations and offer hands on activities for all ages.  Our goal is to have demos that are informative as well as entertaining and also tie into the unique flavor of the store. 

 The Art Festival was an extension of what happens every week in the ‘Buggy Barn’ for most of the year.  A few times a week you can see many of these same artists and crafters doing individual demos that range from fiber arts to pottery to farm animal mural painting to gourd birdhouses to wool rug hooking to garden crafts using recycled materials and many more.   

To see what demos are scheduled in the Buggy Barn go to the Events Calendar at the top of this page. 

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.
