Roger Winter, Professor Emeritus of Painting and Drawing at Southern Methodist University, opened his first painting class 53 years ago at the Fort Worth Art Center with words by Kahlil Gibran, "The teacher who is wise leads you to the threshold of your own mind." He continued to teach following this philosophy including 26 years as a Professor of Art at Southern Methodist University, and a recent stint from 2001-2005 working as a painting and drawing teacher at the National Academy of Design in New York.
Winter's personal exhibition history has included museums and galleries nationwide and his work is currently in the collections of the Atlantic Richfield Company in Los Angeles, Dallas Museum of Art, Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, Frito-Lay corporate collection, Meadows Museum of Art, McNay Museum, Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, Portland Museum of Art in Maine, and Southwestern Bell Corporation, among others.
