Locally owned Puzzles has commissioned the work of Ruth Lozner, a resident of Lewes and internationally known artist, to create its latest jigsaw puzzle of Lewes – Greetings from Lewes, Delaware! The 550-piece jigsaw puzzle celebrates iconic landmarks and images of Lewes in postcard style using the Old English scratchboard technique. Locals and visitors alike will recognize their favorite views of Lewes town, maritime areas, flora and fauna. This original piece of artwork was produced by Lozner for presentation to Lewes' namesake town in Sussex, England.
This image of Lewes, which is suitable for framing, joins an extensive collection of Heritage Puzzles available at Puzzles that celebrate the maritime history, flora, fauna, beach life and lighthouses to be found on the Mid-Atlantic and Eastern seaboard.
Tim Southerst, Puzzles owner, said, "Ruth's unique style and composition wonderfully capture much-loved iconic views of Lewes town and our surrounding area. It will stir fond memories of time spent here by vacationing families and friends, and is an evocative reminder for those of us lucky enough to live here permanently of the key reasons why we do."
This new puzzle, a follow-up to the 1,000-piece Michele Buckler (Sand N Stones) photograph of the Lewes Canal puzzle launched in 2016, is fourth in a series of jigsaws exclusive to Puzzles that celebrate Lewes. The new puzzle’s 550-piece format offers a suitable challenge for both new and seasoned puzzlers. "We trust puzzlers will enjoy doing it, and even framing it," said Southerst.
Lozner, a resident of Lewes, is professor emerita of art and design at the University of Maryland, College Park, and a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, London in the United Kingdom. In addition, she has held faculty positions at Parsons School of Design, New York, and the University of the Arts, Philadelphia.
