Recap of The Red Rock Collection Release
The Erin Hanson Gallery presents the Red Rock Collection
Wednesday, August 29, 2018
The Erin Hanson Gallery presented Hanson’s newest collection of vibrant paintings on June 16th, 2018. Each piece in the Red Rock collection featured the bright, bold colors inspired by the National Parks and monuments of Utah, Arizona, Nevada and Colorado.
Every painting in The Red Rock Show features the thick, impasto strokes Erin Hanson is known for, paired with a brilliant color palette. As you peruse the collection (found here), you will see that each piece embodies an intricate landscape filled with detail and beauty, using very few brush strokes. This is a signature element in Hanson’s open impressionism.
Collectors, art enthusiasts, and locals gathered at The Erin Hanson Gallery on the night of The Red Rock Show, filling the space with discussion and laughter. A subtle, twangy tune seeped its way through the gathering as guests sipped local wine from 2Plank Vineyards. Every aspect of the show was designed to create a memorable experience for all attendees.
Erin Hanson herself met many of the visitors during the show, sharing the experiences behind her paintings, signing her latest art book, and participating in in-depth discussions.
Hanson tells us, “I love to meet anyone who enjoys art, to talk with them about how they see the world, and to share my vision of the natural beauty that surrounds us with others.”

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.
