ROGER E. SALISBURY – “It is always about the light. Whether in the field or studio, the goal is to capture the feeling of Cape Ann light in every season of the year. Pastel is my favorite medium because of its immediacy, brilliance and simplicity. My inspiration is the effort of those who came before me, famous or forgotten, who helped create an artist’s colony we all love.”
Roger trained at the Philadelphia Museum Art School, Art Students League; and privately with John Terelak, Herman Marguelies and Frank Federico. He is a member of Rockport Art Association, Pastel Society of America, American Society of Marine Artists, American Artists Professional League, Salmagundi Club, North Shore Arts Association, Southern Vermont Art Association and Greenwich Arts Society. He is the recipient of numerous awards.
