Wolfram Gallery Hosts Scapegoat

Jonathan Mayer is a WELS Lutheran born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska. Early in his youth, he began illustrating sermons for his grandfather, the late Rev. Herman Mayer.

After graduating from Nebraska Lutheran High School, he attended Bethany Lutheran College. He earned a BA in studio art in 2007, and began work as a freelance illustrator immediately thereafter. In 2011 he graduated with an MFA in illustration from Savannah College of Art and Design.

He taught Art History and Fundamentals at Concordia University Nebraska from 2012-2013, and currently teaches art for Wittenberg Academy. He lives in Seward, Nebraska with his wife, Emily, and their three children.

Mayer's work ranges from a very traditional and often figurative approach, to what can be considered more contemporary works that use bold graphics to convey liturgical meanings. 

He works and designs for many mediums, including watercolor, banners, and logos.

To view more of Jonathan's work visit the Wolfram Gallery at The LCMS International Center in St Louis, where his work is on display January through June 2016.
