Featured Artist: Capt. Robert Lumpp

Effingham Public Library is pleased to welcome local artist, Capt. Robert Lumpp.  Although Capt. Lumpp and his wife, Darlene, just moved to Effingham a few months ago, they both have roots in Central Illinois.

The Captian is a past president of the Passenger Vessel Association, a recent member of the Effingham Noon Rotary Club and attends Trinity Episcopal Church in Mattoon.

Though he is primarily a landscape painter, several years ago he began painting images of the American Flag.  His renderings of Old Glory will be part of the exhibit at the Library and can also be seen at his website theflagpainter.com.
