Fans of high-end science fiction art know the name Paul Lehr – and know his groundbreaking work produced in a career of more than 40 years. And even those who are not familiar with the pioneer or his influential paintings and sculptures have probably seen one of the hundreds of covers of science fiction novels that the late, great artist illustrated. He is credited with being highly influential in the career and aesthetic of James Cameron.

“For more than a decade Paul’s vibrant images fairly dominated the science fiction paperback bookracks, touching the hearts and minds of SF readers around the globe and across several generations,” said Vincent Di Fate, author of “Infinite Worlds.” “Each painting over those four decades marked a progressive path into the world of possible futures.”

Now, Gallery Veriditas in New Orleans is hosting an exhibit featuring dozens of Lehr’s most important and acclaimed work, including sculptures that have never before been shown to the public. Entitled “Beyond the Veil: The Three Lehrs,” the show, which runs through Feb. 29, also features the work of Diana Lehr and Leslie Lehr Daly.

One of the original paintings, entitled Beyond the Veil of the Stars, will also be available for sale.
Representatives from Gallery Veriditas will be on hand at New Orleans Comic Con to talk about the collection and answer any questions if fans are interested in visiting.

The gallery is located at 3822 Magazine Street, and hours are 11 a.m. - 6 p.m. Tues.-Thurs., 11 a.m. - 7 p.m. Fri. and 12 – 7 p.m. Saturday.
