Lance Rudegeair

Wildlife Artist

Bio



Lance has lived and worked in Yellow Springs for over 30 years. A

graduate of Columbus College of Art and Design, Lance earned his MFA in

Painting from the University of Cincinnati.  He then taught various art

classes at the University of Dayton for a number of years while raising

his two sons with his wife Jean. Lance spent countless hours coaching

soccer and baseball, at the Gaunt Park pool and sledding hill, and

gardening, canning and cooking organic produce for his family. For a few years

he was a substitute teacher at the high school and middle school. Lance

had previously exhibited and sold abstract paintings in various

galleries and shows throughout the midwest. Once switching his main focus in

art to wildlife, Lance has slowly and steadily amassed a body of work,

and finally had an exhibition in a small gallery in Yellow Springs, Ohio -

would you, could you In a Frame (unfortunately their last show!). More shows

to follow!! This past fall (2015)a wonderful print house in Cincinnati produced

top-quality limited editionreproductions of most of Lance's wildlife paintings.

They are available for sale, with all artist's profits being donated to various national and

international wildlife preservation organizations.
