In 1960 Rogers adopted the BAHA'I FAITH. Since then he has lectured and written extensively on this religion, emphasizing its importance to his art. In 1988 Rogers moved to Haifa, Israel, to continue a strong leadership role in the Baha'i faith. Rogers returned to Canada in 1998 to set up his studio in Milford Ontario.
While recognizing the spiritual element in his art, some critics claim that the prairie environment has been equally important in his work. His work is represented in many Canadian and international collections, including those of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the ART GALLERY OF ONTARIO, the NATIONAL GALLERY OF CANADA and the MUSÉE DES BEAUX-ARTS DE MONTRÉAL.
