ALBUQUERQUE NM—A new art exhibition opens at the historic KiMo Theatre on Thursday, June 26th in which artists Rod Replogle and Roger Green explore the additive and the subtractive process in their latest creative work. A free public reception to honor the artists is scheduled for 6 – 8 p.m. on opening day. The exhibition is open through August 23rd.
Rod Replogle holds a BA from the University of Colorado-Boulder, a Master of Landscape Architecture from the University of Arizona, and did doctoral work in American Studies at the University of New Mexico. In earlier years in Taos, where he was a member of the Taos Artists’ Association, he began a career with the USDA Forest Service to supplement his income, and later held positions in Durango, Colorado, Tucson, Arizona, and in Albuquerque. He became a video producer and Environmental Education Specialist with the Albuquerque Regional Office of the Forest Service, where he began a partnership with the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science. Over the years he co-curated numerous exhibits on Southwestern natural history. During that time he produced a number of educational materials for the Museum.
Retiring from the Forest Service in 1999, Replogle began to work full-time at his art, and since that time his works have been featured in numerous exhibitions in New Mexico, California, and Texas. His work involves photographs printed on archival paper with permanent inks. He highlights different areas of the photos with graphite, ink or colored pencil to increase contrasting volumes, colors and line, then cuts the photos into strips woven into new images. The viewer then has the challenge of mentally reconstructing portions of the original photo.
Roger Green hails from Chicago where he attended Oakton Community College and the Chicago Academy of Fine Art. He also took master classes at the Art Institute of Chicago. After serving in the US Army in Vietnam, where he was awarded the Bronze Star and the Army Commendation Medal, he began his career in advertising, rising to the senior position of Vice President and Creative Director for two of the world’s largest agencies, J. Walter Thompson and Grey Advertising. During that part of his career he produced award-winning print and television campaigns for major corporations.
Later in his career he launched his own agency, acquiring major clients for whom he created more award-winning campaigns. Green also taught at the Illinois Institute of Art and was a guest instructor at two other institutions.
During his long and distinguished career in advertising, Roger Green was also creating and exhibiting his art. Since his move to Albuquerque several years ago his paintings have been seen in more than a dozen exhibitions in Albuquerque, Santa Fe and Madrid, NM.
