Paso Robles’s Tuscan-Style Oasis Features Erin Hanson Paintings in Their Permanent Collection
Wednesday, October 4, 2017
Eleven of Erin Hanson’s vibrant paintings of wine country and the California countryside are proudly on display at Allegretto Vineyard Resort in Paso Robles as part of the hotel's extensive and diverse collection of art and artifacts collected from across the globe. This sprawling resort is the perfect setting for Erin Hanson's art, as the resort ardently celebrates a love for culture and beauty.
The resort itself is a blend of inspirations sourced from the farthest reaches of the world, intermingled with proper splashes of fresh California design. The walls are a stunning Venetian marble and guests can enjoy museum quality, hand-carved archways and furniture imported from across Southern America, Europe and Asia as they are welcomed into each new space. The atmosphere sets off each carefully-placed work of art and showcases the mix of old and new sensibilities that inspires Erin Hanson as she creates her works. Hanson has been noted as being keenly inspired by the likes of acclaimed impressionists like Van Gogh, Monet, and Tom Thomson.
The California collection by Erin Hanson at the Allegretto Hotel features paintings of Paso Robles’s iconic rolling hills, local wildflowers, and purple jacarandas. The hotel's vast collection of works by artists from near and far are juxtaposed by vintage furniture, slices of the natural world, and locally curated details.
Not only do Erin Hanson pieces pair well with the surroundings of the Allegretto, but they are also ideally enjoyed with the wine on offer through the tasting room or the restaurant Cello. Hanson’s unique style and vivacious color combinations are best examined with a bold red Zinfandel, bright Rose, or local Chardonnay in hand. Viewers must take the time to languish in the interaction of light and color displayed in every Erin Hanson painting, and so often wine allows one to slow down and take in the surrounding natural beauty.
ERIN HANSON is a life-long painter, beginning her study of oils as a young child. Her passion for natural beauty is seen in her work as she transforms vistas familiar and rare into stunning interpretations of bold color, playful rhythms and raw emotional impact. Her frequent forays into National Parks and other recesses of nature include backpacking expeditions, rock climbing, and photo safaris. Hanson's unique painting style has become known as Open Impressionism, with hundreds of collectors eagerly anticipating her work. As an iconic, driving force in the rebirth of contemporary impressionism, Hanson is quickly recognized as a prolific, modern master.
