Presentation of National Awards won by National Capital Chapter

Rodger Schultz (b. 1970) is a rising and globally collected Professional Fine Artist from Washington D.C. Expanding on a prosperous career in Illustration and Iconography, the breadth and width of his knowledge, command of visual languages and diverse range of mark-making, Rodger is quickly creating one of the most diverse and exciting portfolios in American Art.

His Drawing style is abstract. His landscapes, based in impressionism. His portraits, a playground of realist-tending illustration. The works he makes for himself are an infinite, experimental dance exploring the marriage between the three self-invented styles.Where most artists concern themselves solely with self-expression, Rodger's training, background and 
innate joy is in creating work for others. Revering his clients, collectors, and patrons as his own Self, his uncanny ability to absorb their will and manifest it has propelled him into one of the East Coast's most sought-after Commission Artists -- private, public and corporate.
