The Seabrook Island Artist Guild Announces that the December Artist of the Month will be Bob LeFevre.
LeFevre retired from a successful career in business at the age of 55 to pursue his passion – oil painting. He started taking private art lessons when he was 9 and continued with drawing, painting and sculpture lessons throughout his elementary and high school days. At 18, LeFevre took lessons from a retired sea captain in Cape Cod, MA, where he painted his first clipper ship. It was then that his passion for painting scenes of the sea and its surroundings was born.
LeFevre continued to develop his skills through life drawing lessons including nine years at the Art Academy of Cincinnati, plein aire workshops and also by teaching drawing and painting to adults and teenagers, including many Seabrook and Kiawah residents and visitors. He was President of the Seabrook Island Artist Guild for 4 years and is currently V.P. of Education.
LeFevre’s subjects include many parts of the Low Country’s beautiful scenery… marshes, shrimp boats, birds, sunsets and, of course, the clouds and ocean. He has also been commissioned to paint many pets, grandchildren and local scenes by Seabrook and Kiawah residents.
Please join Bob LeFevre for the opening reception in the front hallway of the Lake House on Saturday, Dec. 1, from 5-7 p.m. or stop by and view the exhibit anytime during the month of December.
