Biography

Roger Dorset (b. 1941 in Rome, GA – d. August 3, 2019 in Rome GA) 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. Dorset hosted numerous solo exhibitions, including at the Blue Spiral Gallery (Asheville NC), 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 at the High Museum of Art (Atlanta, GA), and The Hunter Annual Competition at The Hunter Museum of Art (Chattanooga, TN).   Around 1997, Dorset’s health dropped, resulting in a hiatus; however, he continued to make art when he was able. In 2004, Dorset 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.
