Local artists opening at DeBlois Gallery



A ceramic bowl by artist Rodie Seigler.

DeBlois Gallery invites the public to attend an opening reception to meet Rita Rogers and Rodie Seigler, two talented local artists, and to view their work. Rita Rogers describes her paintings as “non-narrative art”, aimed at evoking or communicating a feeling in the viewer. Her masterful use of color, texture, space and movement are evident in her abstract expressionist paintings that are bold yet meditative. Rodie Seigler’s true passion is her ceramic sculpture (pictured). Although she has created a vast and impressive body of sculptural work, she is perhaps best known for her pieces which have incorporated some aspect of the human form. For this show, however, Seigler has created a new series of work. She will exhibit a collection of ceramic bowls, hand formed with relief sculptures of animal forms such as fish, elephant heads and, of course, her beloved greyhounds. Finally, each piece is uniquely glazed to compliment both the sculpture and the vessel.
