David Rogers’s Bio
David Rogers was born in Greenfield Massachusetts where he developed an interest in what was to become a primarily self-taught ability to do portraits.
Graphite and charcoal were his preferred mediums throughout the 1970’s.
Color was soon introduced via the dry pastel medium, followed by oil on canvas.
An early annual showcase for his work was the local agricultural fair where many first and second place ribbons were won and a modest following was created.
Since moving to Falmouth in 1996, Mr. Rogers has taken part in various impromptu portrait groups as well as a brief course in the “Old Masters Style“ with fellow artist and friend, Doug Rugh.
He has also been a member of the Friday Morning Figure and Monday Morning Painters groups at the Falmouth Art Center.
Large 30”x 40” oils in his own custom built frame creations are his latest passion.
Brilliant sunsets over Buzzards Bay near his North Falmouth Home continue to give Mr. Rogers an inexhaustible supply of artistic fodder and inspiration.
Seeking to re-create the sense of ‘being there’, he has taken a step further beyond the 30”x 40” sunsets, to the more recent 3’ x 9’ triptych of an ‘Old Silver Beach’ sunset.
Mr. Rogers work has been displayed at both open and juried shows at the Falmouth Art Center, Mashpee Community Television, Falmouth Hospital and two separate one man shows at Falmouth Community Television.
