Brandt-Roberts Galleries | 642 N High St.

During the October Gallery Hop, Brandt-Roberts Galleries will feature “Under Construction” by Terry Rodgers.

But Terry goes beyond the representational, working in a variety of other media from exuberant and visceral sculptures in bronze, to playful mixed media sculpture, to his gestural drawings and small paintings, to inventive constructed archival prints, and more.
