Lyons artist Tyler Voorhees will be the featured artist at The Stone Cup beginning this Friday, March 1. His show will hang for two months, through the end of April.
From his humble beginnings in rural South Dakota, Voorhees has always been drawn to the art of storytelling. With his paintings, and the characters that inhabit them, he seeks to spin a visual yarn by drawing the viewer in with the composition, and holding their attention with the details. His mixed media paintings depict jobs now forgotten by the majority of Americans, made obsolete by advancements in technology (which are also hidden in the paintings). These occupations existed a mere century ago, yet they have fallen to the wayside in the collective memory of our society.

Today I know that I love you well.
