Roger Dorset received a B.F.A. from the Atlanta College of Art, and an M.F.A. from the Tyler School of Art at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA. Dorset also attended Emory University from 1959-1963. Solo exhibitions were held in the Blue Spiral Gallery, Asheville NC; Connell Gallery, Atlanta, GA; Sarratt Gallery, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN; The Atchinson Gallery, Birmingham, AL; and the Atlanta College of Art Gallery, Atlanta, GA. His group and juried exhibitions include LaGrange College, LaGrange, GA; Nexus Contemporary Art Center, Atlanta, GA; Frankenburg Guthrie Gallery, Athens, GA; Columbia Museum of Art, Columbia, SC; Arts Festival of Atlanta, Atlanta, GA; Poesia e Realta, Salerno, Italy; Artists in Georgia, High Museum of Art, Atlanta, GA; and The Hunter Annual Competition, The Hunter Museum of Art, Chattanooga, TN. Around 1997, Dorset began to deteriorate, resulting in a health-induced hiatus. However, he continued to make art when he was able and in 2004 had a particularly good period during which he produced a long series of works, nine of which premiered in Deadly Sins and Other Matters at Visual Arts Gallery, Emory University in 2008.
