Atlantic Cape's Art Gallery Features Work of Egg Harbor City Resident

February 22, 2012

Atlantic Cape Community College’s Art Gallery will exhibit “Lydia Lehr, Recent Work,” by artist Lydia Lehr of Egg Harbor City, Feb. 28-March 23. A reception to meet the artist will be held 1-4 p.m., Saturday, March 10. The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public.

Lehr, a West Philadelphia native and assistant professor of art at Atlantic Cape, will display her recent artwork in printing and three dimension.

Lehr earned her Bachelor of Art and Master of Fine Art from the University of Pennsylvania, where she focused her studies on creating figurative sculpture in clay, which she cast into plaster and bronze. Currently, Lehr’s work is focused on relief printing. She displays her pieces at her studio in Mullica Township.
