Anita Rogers is the gallery owner and director of Anita Rogers Gallery in New York City. Rogers, born in the UK, was raised in Greece, Turkey and Italy and there she was exposed to art and music at a young age by her father, artist and musician Jack Martin Rogers. Anita later trained as a classical harpist and opera singer. She holds a degree in Ethnomusicology fromThe School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS). In 2016, Anita opened Anita Rogers Gallery; since then, the gallery has exhibited contemporary and secondary-market artists including George Negroponte, Rachel Nicholson, Robert Szot, Jack Martin Rogers, David Hockney, Ben Nicholson, William Scott, and Mark Rothko.
“One of the most challenging areas of the gallery is finding artists – we are always looking for timeless artists who not only have talent and training but who are making innovative and thoughtful work. I was very much looking forward to jurying as it is such a special opportunity to see so much new work from so many artists at once. I was happy to see a nice mix of figurative and abstract works in the entries.
My first and second place winners are both striking figurative artists who seem to have strong formal roots but are making fresh work. In the work of my third-place winner, a mixed abstract artist, I was struck by the artist’s sense of balance, color, and material choices.
I would like to thank everyone who took the time to submit to this year’s exhibition. I am the daughter of an artist and I hold such deep respect for artists and the dedication they give to their work. I encourage all artists to keep working, to keep experimenting, and to keep putting their work out there. It’s essential.”
