Many local creatives are dealing with job furloughs and delays, in every aspect of their lives. Brent Lehker is the lead carpenter for Impact Scenic Arts, on the board of the Historic Meridian Park Neighborhood Association, a visual artist, and the curator and owner of a DIY gallery in his home called Storage Space.

From WFYI's Arts and Culture Desk, Jill Ditmire spoke with Lehker about changes in his professional arenas. He joined the conversation by phone and starts with his work for Impact Group, which builds many things for events -- from theater sets to spaces for conventions.

Lehker says he hopes to open Storage Space in July with work from local educator and furniture artist Katie Hudnell.
