Established in Arizona in 1988, the Petrie-Rogers Gallery (formerly the Marco P. Gallery) provides collectors with authentic antiques and fine quality works of art from Japan, China, and Korea. Our merchandise has been acquired mainly from private collections and is fresh to the market. We primarily purchase from retired World War II veterans and individuals who lived or traveled in Asia during the early to mid-20th century.
We have an extensive selection of Japanese woodblock prints dating from the 18th century to the present. In addition, we offer a broad range of Japanese and Chinese porcelain and ceramics; tansu and furnishings from Japan, Korea, and China; paintings; Chinese and Japanese textiles; metalwork; folk art; and antique decorative accessories. If you do not see what you are looking for, please inquire.
Laurie Petrie Rogers has been involved in the field of Asian Studies for over 30 years. She holds a Master of Arts degree in Regional Studies - East Asia from Harvard University. She is fluent in Mandarin Chinese and well versed in Japanese. Laurie spent seven years in Taiwan marketing computers throughout Asia. In 1987, she returned to her native state of Arizona to open the Marco P. Gallery in Scottsdale. For ten years, Laurie also taught Japanese and Chinese history at Pima Community College in Tucson and at Arizona State University. This academic background enables her to provide a historic component to the works of art sold in the gallery.
Waynor Rogers developed an interest in Japanese woodblock prints and cloisonne while serving in the United States Marine Corps in Asia. Waynor and Laurie married in 1997 and now operate the Petrie-Rogers Gallery by appointment from their Japanese style home, nestled in the desert of the Tucson foothills.
