Otto Rogers at Gallery Jones (February 2016)
5 May 2016 - 15:38, by , in Exhibitions & Fairs, Comments off

Opening reception: Saturday, January 30, 2 – 4pm 

Exhibition continues until February 27th.

An exhibition in celebration of Otto Rogers’ 80th year and his influence on contemporary abstract painting into the 21st century.  Born in rural Saskatchewan in 1935 and now living in Prince Edward County, Ontario, Rogers has been exhibiting actively since the 1950s. Central to his practice is the notion that art can present “motion and stillness simultaneously” and that opposing elements of a painting need to be worked into “an order that will sustain them as a whole and pure thing”. He has kept in motion the idea that making art can be a spiritual endeavour and the results sublime.
