Lorana Rogers was a scholarly artist. She studied at the Pratt Institute of New York, New York University, Columbia University and Cornell University. Until her retirement, Rogers spent twenty-five years as an art teacher in the New York City public schools. The artist exhibited her work at her studio in Alcott, New York.
As a winter resident of Saint Augustine, Florida, Rogers was a member of the Saint Augustine Art Association and offered watercolor painting classes while in town. She exhibited her works at The Brush and Palette gallery, alongside other Lost Colony artists such as Tod Lindenmuth, William L’Engle and E.B. Warren. The Spanish coquina fort (Castillo de San Marcos) was a favored spot for the Lost Colony artists’ plein air excursions.
