Herb Rogoff Interview, Exhibiting at BJS Artworks Gallery in Glens Falls July 16-August 27, 2011

By Monica Sirignano and Dave Bower

Herb RogoffIf ever there was a renaissance man of art, no doubt it would be Herb Rogoff. Rogoff’s illustrious career has spanned the worlds of illustration, music, comics, painting, film and yes, even baseball. Though he spent the majority of his career illustrating for magazines (such as Time, Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, Playboy and New York Magazine), Rogoff also illustrated a variety of record albums, including The Best of the Beatles and The Best of the Rolling Stones, has collaborated in making six films thus far that have traveled and received awards at various film festivals (appearing in a total of 90), has published four monthly magazines of his own, including one on baseball (a passion of his), and these are just scratching the surface. Now retired,  Herb lives in Hudson, NY and spends most of his time painting, doing so to much popularity–his works have appeared in over 30 galleries and museums in just the last few years alone. So when we learned he was going to be exhibiting selections from his My America: America as It Used to Be series at BJS Artworks Gallery in Glens Falls this July & August, we said to ourselves, we have to meet this Herb. Here are portions of an audio interview that we recently did with Herb Rogoff.

The My America: America as It Used to Be exhibit runs July 16-August 27, 2011 at BJS Artworks Gallery in Glens Falls. An opening reception will be held on July 16 from 4pm-6pm (Herb will be there). For more information on the exhibit, visit www.bjsartworks.com.
