Chris Lyter was a beloved artist, PCCA Member, and a longtime friend and supporter of Perry County Council of the Arts. PCCA staff was proud to know Chris as a warm and caring member of our community, and to bear witness to his evolution from up-and-coming local painter to an internationally renowned artist.

Chris gave of his time to our organization as a former vice president of the board, volunteer, and patron. We are better as an organization and as individuals for having known him. He always spoke of his admiration of and gratitude for his wife Lisa, who lovingly supported his dreams of becoming a full-time artist. You can read her beautiful tribute to Chris here.

In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests memorial donations in loving memory of Chris be made to Perry County Council of the Arts, PO Box 354, Newport, PA 17074, or through the link below.

Please join us in supporting Perry County Council of the Arts’ creative community initiatives on GivingTuesday!

PCCA brings people together through the arts. In a busy and oftentimes challenging world, we see the necessary value of the arts for individuals and communities.

🖍️ To beat boredom, we doodle, sketch and color.
🖌️ To self soothe, we find relief in calming brushstrokes.
🎶 To vocalize the struggle in our hearts, we sing and make music.
✏️ To express our feelings about the world around us, we write.
📸 To record special moments and observations, we snap photos.
🌱 To be self-sustaining, we design and create gardens.
🥘 To nurture our families, we get creative with ingredients in the kitchen.
🎨 To live life, we reach for art. For creativity. For poetic expression.

We need the arts more than ever. And, we need your support and/or help to spread the word. Please tell your friends and family why you believe in our work and encourage them to support PCCA too!
