A must see for everyone! The history and work of Lester Raymer is fascinating! Lester repurposed almost everything included furniture. Great collection vintage tos that he handmade for his wife. Also great to visit when there is an "artist in residence"!

Lester Raymer was a painter, sculpturor, wood worker, carver, weaver etc. His studio is simple and yet elegant. The art on display is rotated with the seasons. His wife was his pride and love.

This is Lester Raymer's studio, pretty much as he left it when he died in 1991. Raymer was the Picasso of the Plains and could turn anything to art, examples of which are all over the studio. Each time I visit, I find something new....More

The toys he carved each Christmas for his wife are just amazing, and he did practically every form of art except glass blowing. There is a little tour so you get his history. Open afternoons.
