Barbara Rogers is a seasoned Bay Area artist who has been developing her work for many years. “Critical Juncture” opened First Friday, May 2 and continues through Saturday, June 14, 2014.

Rogers works in her Oakland studio using intricately-detailed abstract images in the traditional media of oil painting, pastel drawing and printmaking. She has a unique approach to color that, while rich, maintains a fresh, clean palette. Rogers pulls inspiration from society’s collective apprehension and the edginess that stems from critical issues affecting our lives — issues that we are trying to avoid or confront, depending on our individual personal sensitivity.
