This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born to Mennonite family with ties to Lancaster County as far back as the early 1700s, Warren Rohrer transferred his early experiences and reverence for the land into his abstract field of color paintings. Rohrer graduated from Eastern Mennonite College in Virginia with a degree in education and plans to teach and paint.

Rohrer taught at the Philadelphia College of Art beginning in 1967 and joined the faculty full time in 1974. The artist and his family made their home in Lancaster County where Rohrer felt connected to the land until 1984 when they moved to Philadelphia.

A European trip in 1972 in which the artist viewed the memorial retrospective exhibits of Mark Rothko and Barnett Newman helped Rohrer define his mature style. It was soon after this trip that Rohrer produced his first grid type painting.

Warren Rohrer's career in art was cut short due to his early death at age 67 after a long battle with leukemia.

In 2003 there was a retrospective for the artist entitled "Warren Rohrer: Paintings 1972-93" organized by Susan Rosenberg at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
