Paso Robles’s Tuscan-Style Oasis Features Erin Hanson Paintings in Their Permanent Collection
Tuesday, October 3, 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 has been painting in oils since she was 8 years old. As a young artist, she worked at a mural studio creating 40-foot-tall paintings on canvas, while selling art commissions on the side. After getting a degree in Bioengineering from UC Berkeley, Erin became a rock climber at Red Rock Canyon, Nevada. Inspired by the colorful scenery she was climbing, she decided to paint one painting every week for the rest of her life. She has stuck to that decision ever since, becoming one of the most prolific artists in history. Erin Hanson's style is known as "Open Impressionism" and is now taught in art schools worldwide. With thousands of collectors eagerly anticipating her work and millions of followers online, Hanson has become an iconic, driving force in the rebirth of contemporary impressionism.
