Erin Hanson

Special Guest Artist

After graduating from college, Erin Hanson entered the art trade as a professional, inspired by landscapes and vantage points only beheld by the most adventurous. Rock climbing among the brilliantly colored cliffs of Nevada and Utah, watching the seasons and the light change daily across the desert, provided endless inspiration for her work. For the past decade, Hanson has been developing a unique, minimalist technique of placing impasto paint strokes without layering, which has become known as “Open Impressionism.” Recently, Hanson was honored with Best of Show at the COWGIRL UP! exhibition at the Desert Caballeros Western Museum. She is currently preparing for a solo show for the Santa Paula Art Museum.
