Glen Rogers is an artist/educator who approaches life with an adventurous spirit and a reverence for Mother Earth. One of her favorite quotes, “Leap and the net will appear”, (John Burroughs) has propelled her on a life journey of art and discovery. Originally from Mississippi, she lived in the San Francisco Bay Area before relocating to Mazatlan, Mexico in 2002.
Her enthusiasm for art in community has inspired her to create projects and curate exhibitions from San Jose to Mazatlan like The Monotype Marathon/San Jose, CA and First Friday Artwalk and Steamroller Printing/Mazatlan. Her book, Art & Sacred Sites: Connecting with Spirit of Place published in May 2014, led to the launch of this blog, and continues to connect her with audiences through talks in museums, galleries, and community centers. Rogers teaches “Monotype in Mazatlán” workshops and organizes Art Vacations to Oaxaca and Guanajuato and will add Peru to the itinerary in the near future.
Roger’s artwork has been exhibited internationally in museums and galleries and is in many public and private collections including public artworks in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her work has been featured on the covers of Inquiring Mind and M! magazines and her Mazatlán studio has been featured on Alaska Airlines’s Nextstop TV.
Glen earned an MFA from San Jose State University, MA from San Francisco State University, and a BA from the University of Florida. She is a member of California Society of Printmakers, and San Miguel Area Printmakers.
