Prairie Music

BY BLAIR WEGENER
@ VOL 11 ON SEP 05, 2014

Blair Wegener is an artist from Edgerton Minnesota that spent many hours painting or drawing in his early childhood. Wegener’s junior and senior high school art teachers had a large influence on him. 
And after earning a degree in Commercial Art in 1975 he worked from 1976 to 2008 as a graphic artist, workingfor advertising agencies and lithographers as well as digital prepress work.

Wegener enjoys and is inspired by American illustrators like Maxfield Parish, N.C. Wyeth and Bob Peak. His belief is that one has a lot to learn and explore. With his love to paint and encouragement from his wife of 36 years along with an exceptionally cold winter, began painting hanging art.

Recently Wegener’s been painting signs, portraits and interior graphics by commission. He has painted anything from a tombstone to an airbrushed Harley Davidson engine on a refrigerator door and has had fun painting them. Overall Wegener’s favorite subjects are rural midwest in character and really enjoy painting a 
piece that causes the viewer to pause and reflect and also tells a little story.

It wasn't until she grew older and was more experienced in the dance scene that she realized how it was so much the same as life. Through the sweat, the tears and blood, she shares her knowledge and the similarities between life and the art of dancing.
