The annual Artlightenment festival which occurs every November at the Church of Scientology & Celebrity Centre Nashville is set to have a pre-show seminar by underwater visual artist Christy Lee Rogers.
Christy Lee Rogers, an artist originally from Kailua, Hawaii, has been selected as a featured artist for the 2014 Artlightenment showcase in Nashville, Tennessee. Prior to the show, she will deliver a seminar titled “Making a Career as an Artist.”
Writer Duncan Beebe for Eyemazing Magazine described Rogers’ work as, “…undeniably contemporary yet also timeless,” and, “portions appear to be drawn from the Baroque period, where dynamic movement and overt emotion were at their height. Many have likened her work to the Baroque master Caravaggio, with her emotive dynamism and dramatic use of lighting.”
Adam Jacques of the Independent Newspaper in London says this about her work, “The ethereal payoff is indeed redolent of a mix of Masters – the vivid hues of Titian, the straining bodies of Rubens, the sun-dappling chiaroscuro of Caravaggio, but also the loose brushstrokes and fluid movement of Delacroix; hints, too, of the Tiepolo-esque heavenly ascents adorning many an 18th-century Venetian chapel.”
“Her experience and portfolio are impressive, and we couldn’t ask for a better seminar to kick-off Artlightenment,” says Corinne Sullivan, president of the Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre Nashville.
Christy Lee Rogers will deliver the pre-show seminar at 5:30pm on Thursday, Nov 13th. For more information about the Artlightenment festival, visit artlightenment.com. For more information about Christy Lee Rogers, visit christyrogers.com.
