About the Artist, Lance Rodgers
Lance Rodgers is an award winning contemporary artist with a strong emphasis on painting and photography. Rodgers is known for creating visual narratives through his use of realism to transport the viewer on a visual journey. Some are introspections, others are larger, worldly observations often laced with humor and symbolism. All are thoughtful in subject, design and execution. In addition to his realism, Rodgers has produced a series of abstract paintings that he creates as mental clearings in between his narratives.
Since 1980, Rodgers has displayed his art in numerous galleries, museums and collections in the United States and abroad. His work is on permanent display at The James Museum of Western and Wildlife Art, The Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art, Arts & Sciences Museum of Ormond Beach, Gulf Coast Museum of Art, the American Embassy in Madrid, Spain as well as numerous private and corporate collections.
Rodgers resides and maintains a studio in the Old Southeast Artist Enclave in St. Petersburg, FL. For more information visit http://www.lancerodgersart.com
