IN EARTH'S IMAGE

Jessica Tenner

Terroir, pronounced “ter'wär,” is a French term used to describe the complete natural environment—soil, topography and climate—that affects the distinctive characteristics and flavor imparted to a wine by the place in which it is produced. The space is a contemporary art gallery and studio featuring paintings by local artist, Eunika Rogers, herself a terroir artist who utilized the natural environment to create her art. Rogers paints with clay and locally found pigments that she collects on her hikes in the San Juan Mountains. Among the subject that she depicts with her earthy palette are large realistic paintings of Colorado landscapes. Landscapes created by the landscape!
