The Basilica is pleased to welcome Randall Richard Rogers’ art exhibit through October 24. Rogers is a local artist specializing in large-scale graphite drawings. On Sunday September 18, drawings by Rogers will be showcased in the Teresa of Calcutta Hall. There will be a reception at 1:00pm and an artist’s talk following at 1:30pm.
Rogers works from a home studio and explores human and personal themes of Self-Discovery, Shame, Hope, Touch, and more. The graphite drawings offer the viewing two distinct experiences. From a distance, the drawings appear almost photographic, but upon closer look, an intimate sensation comes from the complexity and truth of each individual work. Rogers’ technique begins with a grid drawing and hours of complex and intricate strokes and outlines.
