Ceramics of Lindsay Rogers Featured in Gallery
February 6, 2018

The Catron Art Gallery at Walters State Community College will feature the work of Lindsay Rogers this semester. Rogers is a studio potter and assistant professor of ceramics at East Tennessee State University.
Rogers’ work is based in brown stoneware clay formed on a manually-operated treadle wheel.
“Aesthetically, I see distinct beauty in all things marked by time,” the artist said.
“Sturdy old tools, agriculture landscapes and weathered metal, wood and stone objects all stand out as prominent influences for the surface of my work.”
In recent years, Rogers has used her work to advocate for a locally-based, sustainable food system and has participated in collaborations with chefs, food photographers and farmers. Her ceramic pieces have recently been featured in “Martha Stewart Living” and on the cover of “Pottery Making Illustrated.”
“Food production and how we create, serve and eat in this country is something that I think about frequently as I work. Many years ago, I chose pottery as a vehicle for self expression as an artist because I saw the beauty that came from the experience of creating and sharing a lovingly prepared meal,” Rogers said. 
Rogers holds degrees from St. Lawrence College and the University of Florida. 
The exhibit, “American Monolith,” runs from Feb. 16-April 6. Rogers will give an artist talk at 9:45 a.m. on March 29 in the theatre of the Judge William H. Inman Humanities Complex on the Morristown Campus.
The Catron Art Gallery is located in the R. Jack Fishman Library and is open during regular library hours: 8 a.m.-8:15 p.m., Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m.-4:15 p.m. on Friday and 1:30-5:15. p.m. on Sunday. Admission is free. 

CUTLINE: The pottery of Lindsay Rogers will be on exhibit at Walters State’s Catron Art Gallery Feb. 15-April 6.
