Press release

Channel 1, a lifestyle gallery featuring artwork and products from all genres of independent artists, will premiere Teaessare Can Read, a solo exhibit by TS Rogers. This exhibit is the second of a three part series featuring the solo works of local Connecticut artists who have found success in the commercial art world. Free and open to the public, Teaessare Can Read will open Nov. 20, 2009 and run through Jan 31, 2010.

Although TS Rogers' illustrations and graphic works have been fairly ubiquitous in the independent music scene for well over a decade, an exhibit of this distinction and exposure for this otherwise reclusive artist has never before been undertaken. Teaessare Can Read showcases illustrated moments from classic and contemporary literature from Steinbeck to Sedaris. "Teaessare" is a phonetic spelling of the artist's initials.

TS Rogers is primarily recognized for obsessively balanced illustration encompassing clean line work, color interpretation influenced by a background in studio art, and lighting influenced by many years of comic book consumption. TS Rogers' spotless visual style has been further defined by the content of his work which commonly deconstructs pop culture or folklore to be reassembled with a meticulous and often surreal hand. Teaessare Can Read is a natural extension of this noted style and challenges readers to examine and revisit their own interpretations of written word.

There will be an opening reception for this show this Thursday evening at Channel 1 from 6—10 p.m.
