Trespassing in Eden

In Terry Rowlett’s “Breaking Ground,” a pair of earthy do-it-yourselfers stake a claim to their own little patch of the promised land; seven pages later, the artist’s “American in Paradise” pauses in his grand tour across a pastoral Old World …

 

Rowlett, born and reared in Arkansas’ Ozark country, earned his MFA in painting and drawing from the University of Georgia in 1995 and remained in Athens until 2003, when he embarked on a four-year sojourn that took him to live, paint, ponder, and teach in Nova Scotia, Brooklyn, the Hudson River Valley, Nashville, and Cortona, Italy. In 2007 he returned to Athens, where he lives and works in an eco-community outside of town.
