THE PASSING OF OTTO ROGERS, 04.19
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Otto Donald Rogers (19 November, 1935 - 28 April, 2019.) Otto was a teacher, mentor and friend to us and he will be greatly missed.
Otto's lifelong search for the transcendent experience that art can bring is eloquently summarized in his most recent statement about his work:
Even such a small brush with this unknown world is enough to intoxicate the artist's soul and urge the continuous pursuit of this elusive goal! Such has been my journey through all these years--simply driven to drink from that cup just once more and in the process inspire others to drink, to be uplifted, to experience in a painting something beyond the prison of self and the acceptance of the ordinary as our lot in life.

Read an article on Otto Rogers and his life in art, written by Ken Carpenter.
“In 1963, Greenberg singled [Rogers] out in Canadian Art as the only “big attack” painter in Saskatoon, one with a “fullness of inspiration.” He soon became a recognized national art figure. By the 1970s, Rogers was exhibiting in Toronto, Montreal, Paris and Milan.”
