Historical buildings in Delaware County are the focus of a new art exhibit inside Restoration Brew Worx.
For the last 10 years, Adam Lefevre has documented local places and structures as a volunteer at the Delaware County Historical Society.
“I’ve got a lot of time to research,” said Lefevre, a mailman who lives in Delaware. “I’m also an artist, so I figured I could use the combination to tell a story.”
The result is 14 digital collages of places with historical significance to longtime local residents.
For example, Lefevre used an image from an Ohio Wesleyan University yearbook that shows the first game football game played by Ohio State University. (The Buckeyes beat the Bishops 20-14 on May 3, 1890.)
Lefevre said other pieces include the county home, the Kilbourne-Brown school, Monnett Female College and Oak Grove Cemetery. Each has a description underneath the work.
He said Restoration features a local artist each month, and his works will hang there during December.
Restoration Brew Worx is at 25 N. Sandusky St. According to its website, it is open 4 to 10 p.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays; 4 to 11 p.m. Fridays; 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturdays; and noon to 6 p.m. Sundays. It is closed Mondays and Tuesdays.
Lefevre’s works are sold at the Providence, Rhode Island-based Find Your Cool online art gallery, www.findyourcool.us.
