Hanson Releases New Line of 24 Karat Paintings at Open House Event
Monday, November 24, 2014
On November 21st, The Erin Hanson Gallery in Glendale, CA presented a never-before-seen collection of Erin Hanson oil paintings. These original oils were painted over canvas that the artist had applied with 24 karat gold leaf. Magnificently colored and and as texture-rich as one would expect from an Erin Hanson original, these paintings had an additional glow that caught the light in a subtle and intriguing manner.
The paintings' baroque gold frames stood out against the midnight blue walls, and a large collection of miniature gold-framed oil paintings complemented the larger pieces. Guests enjoyed the performance of singer songwriter Marina V, while sampling a variety of reserve wines from Paso Robles' Peachy Canyon winery and nibbling on a delectable variety of cheeses.
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.
