Rogers employs her work as a ceramic artist to advocate for more locally based, sustainable food system. She has participated in collaborations with other artists, chefs and farmers, and her pottery, writing and words can be found in a range of publications from blogs to books and podcasts. The "Harvest" exhibition features Rogers' series of new, unfired, seed collection baskets entitled "American Monolith," in collaboration with Sow True Seeds. The exhibition also includes her contemporary functional ware "Tablescape" and select sculptural vessels from her graduate thesis series, "Close to Home.'' Rogers received her master of Fine Arts from University of Florida and is an assistant professor of ceramics at ETSU.

The Tipton Gallery is a satellite exhibition venue of Slocumb Galleries under the Department of Art & Design at ETSU in Johnson City. Its programming is supported by various grants from the Tennessee Arts Commission and collaborations with various community organizations. The "Harvest" community engagement activities are supported by Highwater Clays from Asheville, North Carolina, providing the earthenware materials for the hand building art workshops conducted on youth and senior centers in the region, with funding from the Arts Build Communities Grant through the First Tennessee Development District and the Tennessee Arts Commission.
