No Rhyme or Reason - Art by Rick Rogers
Rick Rogers is a self-taught artist who "grew up visiting galleries and museums and soaking in the riches of the masters." His path was unusual as a park ranger for 10 years on the 4,300-acre Ward Pound Ridge Reservation (where he and his family lived for 34 years), but that would evolve into his co-founding Westchester's Art in the Parks program and curating the reservation's gallery. Rogers subsequently spent 10 years at the Silvermine School of Art in New Canaan, Conn., doing maintenance and art installing. While on the job, he "had the good fortune to meet many great artists who were very kind to let me pick their brains," and that turned Rogers into an artist himself. "My interest is using 'mixed media' - enamels, latex polyurethane, etc., rather than acrylic or oil," he says. "Abstract artists and impressionism are my inspiration." This exhibit is on display on the library's second floor. Learn more.
