Our 2021 Poster Winner

He has been called one of the great painters of his generation. His paintings adorn the home and offices of some of the more powerful people on the planet. Yet, for years, Roger Mason has been a familiar sight on Colorado Avenue, putting final strokes on a canvas that captures a moment in time.

Many people use the phrase “blank canvas” metaphorically, but artist Roger Mason selects the Telluride New Sheridan Hotel and Telluride’s Main Street year after year as his inspiration. The town’s box-canyon setting offers dramatic lighting with heavy shadows that play upon colorful storefronts, lamp- posts, cars, street life, and mountains.

Born in New York, Roger eventually found his way to Telluride through his music. In addition to painting, he is also a renowned bass player and played for Peter Rowan at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival in 1979. In the 1990s, he toured in a trio with world-renowned violinist Itzhak Perlman playing to crowds at places like Wolf Trap and Tanglewood. Mason also played bass with The Band. Painting is music to him.

“When is a painting finished? When it’s breathing…” Roger
