Oxford MS/Syracuse NY
Rogers grew up in Oxford, MS, and lived in Syracuse NY for most
of his adult life. He took up woodcarving as a way of staying awake
during long night shifts at a chemical plant. Rogers claimed that
his art was a reflection of his dreams. He is perhaps best known
for his grostegue human figures and "haints", though he
also carved animals and larger tableaux like "haint houses"
which included several carved figures. He returned to MS in 1984.
