Artists of Northwest Minnesota

Chris Lane / Art, Design, Painting, photography / / 0 Comments

Earlier this year I completed a print design project for the Northwest Regional Arts Council of Minnesota. This happens to be my local arts council so I was happy to work on it. The project was to design a booklet to feature all the local artists in a few counties in the region. Being a fine artist myself, I also chose to be featured within the booklet.
While working on this I had to work with my fellow artists to get everything together. There are 31 artists, besides myself, featured in this and all from different backgrounds and art styles. There are painting, ceramics, fabric, and photography artists.

Featured Artist – Patrick Loehr

Chris Lane / Art, Featured Artist, illustration, Painting / / 3 Comments

This month’s Featured Artist is Patrick Loehr. I came upon his work in an accidental way by picking up his first children’s book, Mucumber McGee and the Half-Eaten Hot Dog in a bargain bin.

I liked the artwork from the start and read maybe a page or two at the store and decided it was definitely worth a purchase. I got it home and read it to my son. For any of those that have a two year old, you can understand that it isn’t easy to keep one still long enough to finish a book, even one so short, but he was attentive the entire time. As for me, I loved not only the illustration style but the writing as well. I highly recommend picking it up whether you have kids or not.

I don’t have it yet, but Patrick has a second children’s book
