Skip Bailey is a 1986 Noblesville High School alum.

FLYING HIGH NHS ALUM SPENDS 25 YEARS IN THE AIR FORCE, NOW TEACHES STUDENTS TO TAKE FLIGHT Writer / Christy Heitger-Ewing Photography Provided

After graduating from Noblesville High School in 1986, Skip Bailey went to Indiana University where he struggled to determine what he wanted to do with his future. His dad, who had gone through the ROTC program, encouraged his son to do the same. “I wasn’t crazy about the military, but I gave it a try,” says Bailey, who took the AFOQT (Air Force Officer Qualifying Test) and scored exceptionally well on the aviation and navigation sections. After seeing the results, the Colonel asked Bailey if he could send him to pilot training and teach him to fly. Wide-eyed and intrigued, Bailey was sold.

whom he had met at IU. At the time he completed pilot training, the Air Force had too many pilots and not enough airplanes so they sent two-thirds of his pilot training class to do something else. Bailey used the opportunity to earn a master’s degree in criminal justice from the University of South Carolina. After which, he returned to flying. In 1994, he went to Offutt Air Force Base in Omaha, Nebraska, where he flew the EC135 — a plane that was called the Looking Glass because its mission was to be airborne constantly in case of a nuclear strike by the Soviet Union. It flew three eight-hour flights a day.

After finishing college, he got his commission as second lieutenant in the Air Force, then went to pilot training at Williams Air Force Base in Mesa, Arizona.

“It could mirror what the United States ground missile launchers could do and launch nuclear missiles in a retaliatory strike from the air in case the ground bases were destroyed,” Bailey says. Considered a Cold War weapon, the plane has since been retired.

In December 1991, he married Sherry,

In 1998, Bailey and his wife moved to 6 / NOBLESVILLE MAGAZINE / MAY 2018 / atNoblesville.com

McGuire Air Force base in Trenton, New Jersey, where he flew the KC-10, an aerial refueling plane. As the name suggests, these are planes that refuel other aircraft while in the air. Bailey did this from 1998–2002 before going back to Offutt to fly the E-4B, a Boeing 747-200 model airplane modified for Air Force use. The primary mission of the E-4B is to be close to Air Force One and the president at all times in the event of a worst-case scenario. “We’ve been called Air Force One Back-up and Air Force Two. We are a communications platform so the President can communicate with anybody around the world,” says Bailey, noting that this plane has a prominent role in the Tom Clancy thriller “The Sum of All Fears.” “A small nuclear device goes off and they need to get the Vice President on board the E-4B to keep him safe,” Bailey says of the book. The backup job of the E-4B is to take the secretary of defense and his staff anywhere


they need to go. So while Bailey has never been on Air Force One, he’s flown five different secretaries of defense to various parts of the world. “It was a fantastic job,” Bailey says. “My fun fact, whenever I’m at a party, is to share that I’ve been to every continent in the world except Antarctica.” After five years, Bailey took a job as an ROTC commander at Ohio’s Kent State University. “That kind of brought me full circle,” says Bailey, who remained in that position until 2010. He then flew the E-4B again from 2010–2016. After retiring from the Air Force in 2016, he landed a job as flight training coordinator at the University of Nebraska at Omaha in its aviation department. He teaches ground school classes for aviation and is also in charge of overseeing the flying of all of their professional flight students — this semester that’s 99 students. It was an adjustment to go from military aviation to general aviation as getting acquainted with the FAA regulations took some time. “It’s a steep learning curve figuring out all of the differences,” Bailey says. “Going from military to university is a complete 180.” Teaching students the basics of flying — e.g., what lift means, what drag means, what winds will do to an aircraft — is enjoyable for Bailey. He also enjoys watching his students progress through the program and graduate. “To know that I had a piece in their success is very satisfying,” he says. Bailey and his wife have three children: Nick (21), a junior at the University of Northern Colorado, Beth (21), a junior at Truman State University in northeast Missouri, and Tori (17), a high school junior who is committed to playing soccer at Emporia State University in Kansas. They also have two Boston terriers — Ginger and Gus. Skip atNoblesville.com / MAY 2018 / NOBLESVILLE MAGAZINE / 7


and Sherry have enjoyed building a life in Nebraska.

ClosER, fastER care is here.

“My wife and I always joke that if you take Indianapolis, cut it in half, sizewise, and move it 600 miles west, you have Omaha,” Bailey says. “It’s the same climate, same people. There’s a lot of corn everywhere. It feels like home.” When Bailey was in the Air Force, he traveled extensively. He’s been to 38 countries around the world and looks forward to returning to some of those places with Sherry. For their 25th wedding anniversary, the pair toured Italy.

WALLS RUG & ROOM 2345 Conner Street Noblesville, Indiana 46060 (317) 773-7800 WallsFurniture.com

T

here’s a new business in Noblesville, but it’s owner isn’t new to Noblesville. Rug & Room is the latest venture from Austin Walls, owner of Walls Mattress. Located right next to his mattress store, Rug & Room is an idea that started about a year ago when that space became available. “We’ve been in Noblesville since 2010. Support from the community has been there from the beginning and we’ve become one of the top mattress stores in Hamilton County. Naturally, when I was looking to expand my business, the first place I thought to expand was Noblesville.”

Create a home with Rug & Room

Walls has been in the furniture and mattress business since his family began operating their Walls Furniture store in Muncie, Indiana in 1996. He opened his first store in Anderson in 2005, then expanded to Noblesville in 2010. After 22 years in the furniture and mattress business, Walls has learned a few tricks. “There are a few things about this business that I really like. One of those things is mattresses. I truly enjoy helping people to sleep better. The other is making a home complete. Anyone can buy a couch, but how do you make that room really feel like home? My goal with Rug & Room is to be the starting 10 / NOBLESVILLE MAGAZINE / MAY 2018 / atNoblesville.com

place to a complete home. The process is easier when you go about it backwards. If you start with the rug first, or a piece of art and some accessories, it’s a much easier process and it’s something anyone can do.” Walls wanted the focus to be on local as much as possible and he wanted the pieces to be unique but affordable. “We partnered with Oriental Weavers for our rug supply. They have thousands of available designs, colors, and sizes of rug designs. Many of their rugs are produced in the USA and are very affordable. Working with them allows us to get the product quickly and also


allows us to price our product at or below prices you’d see online.” For featured art, Walls wanted to pull in talent from the community. “I didn’t want to just offer the same artwork that you can purchase at any large home store. I contacted a few [local] people to see if they would be interested in selling original pieces at the store and they were excited to be a part of it. My goal is to give them exposure to a whole new client base and give my customers access to something local that they can’t get in the box stores. I hope to add more artists over time and really expand on that part of our business as well.”

“We are local made better.” Rug & Room also offers accessories, lamps, accent furniture, and candles. Walls said he tried to find items that weren’t readily available in this area. Just like with the other businesses that Walls operates, the focus is on customer service. “We are local made better. Some companies are just too big you never get to interact with the owner. I want to be accessible in my businesses. My success depends on your experience.”

GET BACK FROM BACK PAIN

Perhaps your back hurts first thing each morning, every time you play golf, or only after you lift something heavy. You’re not alone. In fact, approximately 80 percent of Americans will experience back problems at some point during their lifetime. Dr. F. Andrew Rowan, spine surgeon, and Dr. Kris Homb, nonsurgical spine and sports specialist at Indiana University Health North Hospital, offer these tips for alleviating back pain.

risk for injury. If you are starting a new exercise regimen, talk with your doctor to find a routine that will work best for you. Stretching is also very important. Just like weak muscles can lead to pain, tight muscles can place pressure on the spine and lead to injury. Your spine supports your entire body, so when stretching, be sure to target the whole body. If you aren’t sure where to start, talk with your doctor about stretches that may help.

“Back pain can be muscular, arthritic, or sometimes due to nerve compression,” explains Dr. Rowan. “It can be caused by age, arthritis, weight gain, or poor posture. There are many common causes of back pain, and it’s not always easy to identify the root cause.”

In addition to exercise, it’s helpful to treat pain with heat or ice. But when should you use heat and when should you use ice?

Here’s the good news: exercise can help.

A little soreness might be common, especially if you notice it after exercising. However, if back pain continues despite rest, or if it seems to be spreading, that may indicate a more serious problem. Speak with your doctor if you notice any of these signs.

“Exercise is a great way to prevent and treat back pain,” says Dr. Homb. “Strong muscles stabilize your spine when you move and can prevent injury and pain.”

“Ice is useful for acute back pain because it helps reduce swelling,” explains Dr. Homb. “Heat is better for chronic back pain.”

What kind of exercise is most helpful? That depends on what you enjoy. If you enjoy an activity, you’re more likely to stick with it. “If you have severe back pain, or if you’re recovering from back surgery, avoid high-impact activities or activities that place stress on the lower back,” suggests Dr. Rowan. “For example, an elliptical is a low-impact alternative to running, and it provides comparable cardio benefits. Similarly, if you’re experiencing back pain, a recumbent bicycle may be a better option for you than a standard bicycle.” Exercising with poor form or with excessive weights may put you at

THROUGH THE LENS ROBERTS CAMERA CELEBRATES 60 YEARS IN BUSINESS Writer / Jon Shoulders Photographer / Brian Brosmer

Roberts Camera’s ability to thrive in the photography, lighting and electronics retail business for 60 years has involved much more than just keeping up with industry technology that seems to evolve almost daily. Meredith Reinker, marketing and human resources director, says the Indianapolisbased, family-owned company’s willingness to adapt its business model to customer habits and shopping methods has been just as important to its success as keeping up with the camera and lighting industry’s ongoing technological advancements.

“The jewelry wasn’t doing great at the time so they started to pick up additional lines – service merchandise catalogs were how people shopped back then so they basically became a catalog showroom,” Reinker says. “One of my grandfather’s employees at the time was a high schooler who was taking a photography class and told my grandfather he could sell cameras. It was good timing in the sense that film was really evolving at that point and film cameras were getting popular, and then, of course, eventually digital took us into the next era.” Since its founding, Roberts Camera has continually found effective ways to reach beyond its Indy customer base, from a thriving mail-order business through the 1970s and 1980s to a successful sales presence through its official website, which was launched back in 1997. In 2012 the Roberts staff began a buy, sell and trade sister company called UsedPhotoPro, which deals exclusively in used camera equipment primarily online.

The company, which offers a full range of new and used photography, audio, video and lighting gear and currently operates two brick-and-mortar locations in Carmel and downtown Indianapolis, was founded by Reinker’s grandfather Robert Pallman as a modest jewelry business on South Capitol Avenue in August of 1957. Almost Reinker says her father Bruce, who has immediately, Pallman began adjusting his run the company for the past 45 years, business concept to meet customer demand. has brought an open-minded approach to INDY METRO / MAY 2018 / TownePost.com

sales and customer service that has helped Roberts Camera stay in business in a time where many camera shops have closed their doors due to dwindling sales. “Over the past 10 years, the evolution has been going fast with how people shop,” Reinker says. “Retail has changed so much as it’s gone from people having to walk into a retail store to shopping online – our sales now are about 60 percent online and 40 percent retail. So again, it’s that combination of staying with the technology and then how people actually approach retail.” To commemorate 60 years of service in Indianapolis, Reinker and her 64 full-time and part-time Roberts co-employees – many of whom have been with the company for 20-plus years – held an in-store celebration in August with special deals and promotions as well as free photography classes and camera cleanings. “Twice a year we also do a spring and fall photo expo where we bring in our manufacturer representatives, and tech reps from Nikon, Canon, Panasonic and all those types of brands,” Reinker adds.


“We offer free classes all day long, which helps to promote the classes that we offer regularly. We usually have anywhere from 10 to 12 classes a month for every level of photographer from fundamentals of photography up to specialty lighting and that kind of stuff.” Reinker adds that the explosion in iPhone camera use has had a twopronged effect on her industry, phasing out less expensive, pointand-shoot cameras while at the same time increasing interest in higher-end equipment and accessories. “The iPhone has gotten a lot of people interested in photography that otherwise might not have been, especially with social media where everybody is a photographer now,” she says. “So, we have people coming in now that have been using their iPhone for a long time but want to take that next step and get better images with better equipment.” Reinker believes the company is primed for another 60 years of success as long as it remains adaptive and flexible in the face of an ever-changing marketplace. “As Indianapolis has grown we’ve received a ton of support. Indianapolis has a very strong and vibrant community of photographers,” Reinker says. “In a time where photography has changed drastically, I think our customer base and the support we get from Indiana as a whole is awesome. Indy is a great place to be.”

Chris and Emily Cunningham truly value quality customer service. In fact, it’s why they started their own customer-service focused heating, cooling and plumbing company, Service Plus, in the first place. “Before we started Service Plus, we were a couple of kids, fresh out of college and at our first real jobs,” Emily says. “We owned our first home and needed to have some repairs done, and I was appalled at how incredibly hard it was for me to find a company to do the repairs, show up when they said they would, and get the work done properly. I said to Chris, ‘Honey, don't you know how to do a lot of this stuff? I think we could really make a difference in the home repairs industry.’”

APRIL SHOWERS REALLY DO BRING MAY FLOWERS Writer / Carrie Petty

Oh May, your glorious month. Time to get busy! If April is the time when the garden is emerging from sleep, then May is the time in the garden when she has had two full cups of coffee and ready for high gear, time to bloom! Where to begin. Let’s talk lawns first. Make sure that mower blade is sharp people, and do not ever mow when it is wet. This is the first step to preventing diseased lawns. Also, to prevent moles set out multiple traps along the moles trail. An old American Indian trick — it is said that the moles move to the surface on a warm, sunny day at high noon. You can get them with a garden spade if you have the constitution to do so. I call the hubby for that trick.

Saturday worth of mulching and gardening chores, make sure you give the old body a good stretch and warm up a bit. Your back will thank me in the morning. At the age of 54, I have settled for one of those seat thingies that you can flip over and kneel on too. It has saved my gardeners back from strain. Visit all your local gardening centers and pick up something new. I suggest every year adding a new tree or bush to the landscape and at least a couple of new perennials to the flower garden. Always, always, try new veritable varieties. So many cool ones come out each year. If you have not tried Purple Kohlrabi, then you need to.

When planting any newly purchased pot grown specimen, a good tip is to scrape off the top half inch of soil out of the pot If you did not get your crab grass and toss it in the trash, not the compost preventative down in April, do it as soon as bin! This is where the weed seeds reside. possible. And make sure you cut your lawn Taking that soil off the top of the pot will to the highest setting on the mower, this way help prevent the introduction of new weeds you are shading out weed seeds in the soil in your garden. Particularly, the hard to and will have a much healthier lawn. The eradicate Thistle-It is a monster. taller the blade, the deeper the root! Many Indiana landscapes now have Hostas Now, when it comes to general gardening peeking up through the soil, their tall green chores for the month of May, first things spikes curled into a cone format, this is the first, stretch.

plants. Place your spade two inches away from the growth and dig down deep, tip your spade back to unearth the root ball to loosen. Do this all the way around the plant base and pull the entire thing out of the ground. Then divide each green spire into a new plant, making sure you capture a good rootstock as you go. This is the easiest and cheapest way to increase the size of one’s garden. This is the very act of ‘gardening’ itself! If you do this, I give you permission to call yourself a gardener. Bravo! Dividing Daffodil bulbs is a great chore to do now, and your garden will reemerge in the spring with a fresh facelift of yellow blooms. Just dig up a clump of foliage left behind after the blooms fade, and pull apart the bulbs with your hands. Again, be sure to capture a good rootstock with each bulb if you can. If not, they will survive. Replant one-by-one in a new hole elsewhere about six inches deep. This is also a great time to use a granulated fertilizer on your Tulips and bulbs to strengthen their roots for next year’s bloom. Gardening is always about looking forward. It is the most optimistic duty. So get going my friends. And as always, I hope I have helped you “Grow a More Beautiful Life!” Cheers.

NEW BRU BURGER BAR OPENS IN NOBLESVILLE Writer / Jon Shoulders Photographer / Amy Payne

When you have a formula for success, stick with it. That’s been Mike Cunningham’s philosophy each time he’s opened a new BRU Burger Bar location, including his latest on Westfield Road in Noblesville, which opened April 2. Last spring Cunningham, founder

and CEO of Indy-based Cunningham Restaurant Group (CRG), sat down to a business lunch with Noblesville Deputy Mayor Steve Cooke, who suggested he consider opening an eatery in Noblesville’s downtown district.

especially with what funnels down from Morse Reservoir and places like that. With the downtown work population, we thought that we could get enough at lunchtime to make it work. It seemed like a good fit for us.”

“Typically when we’re looking for BRU locations, we’re looking for a decent daytime pop, with plenty of bedroom community rooftops to support us in the evening,” Cunningham says. “We felt like Noblesville fit that in the downtown area,

The 6,000-square-foot eatery, which sits on the first floor of the BlueSky Technology Partners headquarters building and seats approximately 140 diners, features a familyfriendly, contemporary ambience with outdoor dining space for warm months.

26 / NOBLESVILLE MAGAZINE / MAY 2018 / atNoblesville.com


BRU patrons can choose from a wide selection of burgers, from classic preparations like the Beginning Burger, with comes with American cheese, mayo, mustard and ketchup, to the End Burger, loaded with horseradish havarti, an overeasy egg, tomato, caramelized onions, lettuce and truffle aioli. Six salads, desserts and specialty appetizers like barbecue nachos and roasted jalapeño mac and cheese are also offered. “The response from the town has been outstanding,” Cunningham says. “Everybody has been excited and welcoming. We staffed up the restaurant pretty easy. Training went extremely well and we’ve gotten a lot of nice feedback from our guests and our team members. (BlueSky co-founder and CEO) Todd Irwin and the people at BlueSky have been helpful along the way.” BRU Burger’s flagship location on Mass Ave has won several awards since opening in 2011, including Best Local Burger from NUVO in 2014, Best Burger from the Indy A-List contest in 2014, and inclusion in Indianapolis Monthly’s 10 Best New Restaurants in 2012. In 2016, BRU’s Honey Chipotle BBQ Burger - which comes overflowing with bacon, cheese, onion rings, pulled pork, and black pepper mayo - was named the most over-the-top burger in Indiana by Esquire. “I think our success with BRU Burger starts with the food,” Cunningham says. “There are plenty of options on the menu - we have our gourmet burgers but we also offer our salads and some other options for those who don’t want to eat hamburgers every day.” CRG, the company responsible for several other successful restaurants throughout Indiana, Ohio, and Kentucky, including Stone Creek Dining Company, Vida, Charbonos, Moerlein Lager House and Mesh, sources from several Indiana farms for its ingredients, and last year the company opened its own 7,800-square-foot hydroponic greenhouse on Indy’s southside. “The demand for locally grown product has been here for a while and it’s not going

The company recently built a 10,000-square-foot raised-bed garden near its Indy headquarters, from which CRG chefs will be able to source produce for the company’s downtown restaurants. Proceeds from the garden will benefit Meals on Wheels. CRG plans to open three additional BRU Burger locations this year in Lafayette as well as Fort Mitchell, Kentucky, and Westerville, Ohio. In June the company is slated to open Nesso, a coastal Italian eatery concept, at Indy’s Alexander hotel in a space previously occupied by Cerulean.

Cunningham feels the BRU concept has flourished in Central Indiana and beyond due to its combination of affordable menu items and a unique decor that features upscale touches. “We feel like we over-deliver for the price point that we are offering,” he says. “For example, you can order a $9 hamburger, but you’re sitting at a granite bar top or a solid walnut tabletop with an upholstered chair. The furnishings and the feel of the place are much more upscale than what the price point suggests. I think that offers a value to people that tends to bring them back.” BRU Burger Bar is located at 350 Westfield Road, Suite 100, in Noblesville.

Pippa Mann Partners With Donate Life Indiana, Honors Late Bryan Clauson On & Off the Racetrack Writer / Josh Brown Photos Provided by Donate Life Indiana

IndyCar driver Pippa Mann wants you to become a donor. Recently, Mann held a press conference on March 20 at the Indiana State Museum to announce a new partnership with Donate Life Indiana and unveiled the renderings for her racecar in this year’s 102nd running of the Indianapolis 500. Donate life Indiana will be the primary sponsor on Mann’s No. 63 Dale Coyne Racing car.

The conference kicked off Mann’s initiative to educate new drivers about donor registration — a topic that is near and dear to her. Mann was teammates and friends with the late Bryan Clauson, who died in 2016 after a wreck that flipped his car in the Belleville Nationals midget race. Clauson, a Noblesville High School alum, was a registered organ donor and his contribution helped save five lives. Clauson’s story left a profound impact on the racing world and sparked the Driven2SaveLives campaign as well. 32 / NOBLESVILLE MAGAZINE / MAY 2018 / atNoblesville.com

“I am incredibly proud to be partnering with Donate Life both on and off the racetrack,” Mann says. “I get to drive a car that has special meaning to me. I was teammates with Bryan Clauson, and we became good friends. To learn that Bryan was an organ donor, that was very meaningful and left an impact on me. This is bigger than any one person, though. This is about everyone who is on the donor waiting list. It is about being able to give hope and life to someone else.” Ever since Bryan’s passing, Mann has been supporting the Clauson family in


many ways, including being a part of the Driven2SaveLives campaign. When the family found out that Mann was partnering with Donate Life Indiana this season to put this cause at the forefront, both on and off the racetrack, they were humbled. “We are really excited,” says Taylor McLean, Bryan’s little sister. “Pippa has always been a wonderful friend to Bryan. From the very start, she was so gracious and wonderful to our family and to him. For her to honor Bryan in this way and continue his legacy, we’re humbled and proud and excited that Bryan gets to ride along with her in May.”

“If we can at least start the conversation with these young teens, or anybody really, about the positive things that can come from being a donor, that is all we really want to do.” - Taylor McLean, Bryan’s little sister

Because of his decision to become an organ donor, Bryan Clauson helped save five lives after his tragic death in 2016.

Prior to Bryan’s passing, McLean says that organ donation really wasn’t something the family talked about or discussed much. Because of how many lives he was able to save after his death though, the Clausons realized first-hand the importance and impact of checking yes and becoming an organ donor. “I am extremely proud of that decision Bryan made to become a donor, and he did it in such a way that was really who he is — he never told anybody that was what he wanted to do if something were to happen to him, he just did it,” McLean says. “To know that there were five other families on the other end of it that were able to celebrate life the day we said goodbye to Bryan, that is something that gives us peace and helps us through those tough days when we are missing him.” McLean believes so strongly in the donor cause that she actually now works for the Indiana Donor Network serving as its Community Relations Coordinator. A major goal for the organization is to educate teenagers on the importance of becoming an organ donor and why they should check yes for that status as they get their drivers license. “If we can at least start the conversation with these young teens, or anybody really, about the positive things that can come from being a donor, that is all we really want to do,” she says. “We want them to make an educated decision and talk about it with their families. atNoblesville.com / MAY 2018 / NOBLESVILLE MAGAZINE / 33


“Working for the Indiana Donor Network has given me a way to honor my brother every single day,” McLean adds. “It never feels like work because this is something that I am passionate about. I get to do something that makes a difference, and it is something that I am connected to.” As part of the initiative, Mann will be representing Donate Life Indiana as a spokesperson off the track as well. She will be visiting schools and driver’s education classes to educate students and teachers on the importance of organ, eye and tissue donation. “This is a cause that is very close to my heart,” Mann says. “I am honored to have been asked to drive the Donate Life car this May. Off the racetrack is where this partnership gets really important. I want to be sure Hoosier high school students are able to make an educated decision about donation when they go to the BMV to sign up for their first driver’s license.” “Our education team is committed to partnering with Pippa and students and teachers across the state to bring the message of organ donation and transplantation to as many students as possible,” adds Steve Johnson, Board Chairman for Donate Life Indiana. McLean says this year’s Indy 500 will certainly be an emotional one for her and the Clauson family. “To have somebody like Pippa who, on the biggest moment of her life on race day, is thinking of Bryan and racing for him, it is an honor and really hard to put into words honestly,” McLean says. “We get emotional every time we talk to her about it. We are just so glad that Bryan had a friendship with someone like her. This year we are excited to spread the message and honor Bryan again with Pippa alongside us. It is humbling to see her join this cause, a cause that she truly, 100 percent supports and is connected to. As a family, we are going to stand by her side and fight for those families who need a second chance and a little hope on their worst day.” For more information on the campaign visit DonateLifeIndiana.org/pippa.

LOCAL PAINTER’S WORKS FEATURED AT CV ART AND FRAME & ANNUAL BRICK STREET MARKET Writer / Suzanne Huntzinger Photography Provided by CV Art and Frame

his works come along and deliver a painting which delivers on all of that.

Some art fulfills its purpose on a wall for its matching colors or the scenery matching a theme. Some art hangs on the wall making a statement about the owner’s affinity for the artist. But, once-in-a while, an artist and

Artist Gabriel Lehman’s works are a touchstone for all the reasons art appeals to fans, and his paintings are available at Zionsville’s CV Art and Frame. Lehman’s works will be featured at the Annual Brick 36 / NOBLESVILLE MAGAZINE / MAY 2018 / atNoblesville.com

Street Market, May 12, a one-day event for all the vendors in the village to feature the works of select artisans outside in their store fronts. “It’s always exciting to meet and promote a fabulous artist,” Owner of CV Art and Frame, Barbara Jennings says. “We want to


expose people to Gabriel’s works, and we want them to know they can get it here.” CV Art and Frame has been carrying Lehman’s works for just about a year, but the artist has been painting for almost a decade. In that short time, he’s already accomplished more than many, having been named an Indiana Artisan, an elite group of Hoosier artisans exemplifying excellence in their craft of art, food and wine. The distinction was a great honor to Lehman in 2016, considering he was the first artist accepted in five years. He says he got started just doing it for fun for himself, and he landed on cartoons, eventually landing his first show in 2010. Lehman’s style is whimsical, joyous, sunny and even biblical. “I’m a huge fan of the bible, biblical truth and surrealism,” he says. “I want the action to look fairly real, but I add just enough exaggeration and hidden light sources to make it surreal.” Lehman’s paintings are set in a world that doesn’t include modern technology, but all of them have a story behind it to which the modern-day world can relate. “I want folks who see my paintings to have a jovial experience. I see light everywhere and I want people to feel that,” he says. “Some will laugh, some will cry, but, I don’t plan that when I start the painting. I give my paintings fun and introspective titles to evoke emotion, and the connection it makes is different for everyone.” The bible connection in Lehman’s paintings is obvious to some, and not so obvious to others. In “Climbing Towards the Sun,” all the characters are climbing branches to see the sun like the way Zacchaeus the tax collector wanted to see Jesus. “Blessings of Jacob” is straight from the bible and makes a clear statement about blessings and giving of yourself. Most of Lehman’s work has been for art galleries but he’s been commissioned for specific works. Dr. Chuck Dietzen, founder of Timmy Global Health,


commissioned Lehman to paint a scene for his annual fundraising event, the Timmy Takedown. The event brings together more than a dozen kids with physical disabilities ranging from Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida, to amputation to get in the ring and wrestle (safely of course) and prove what they can do despite their physical limitations. Dietzen, a rehabilitative medicine specialist and former pro wrestler for five years, keeps the event authentic by giving the kids pro wrestler names and crazy costumes.

A true humanitarian, it’s important to Lehman to touch the lives of children through his paintings, so it’s not surprising that he wants to do even more to help children. “It’s always been a dream of mine to paint a mural for children to see and lift them up during times when they need it most,” he says. “I’m hoping to do one for a children’s hospital.” Serious talks are in the works to make that dream a reality.
