The Erin Hanson Gallery - Grand Opening in Los Angeles, CA

The Erin Hanson Gallery Opening Was a Roaring Success!

The Erin Hanson Gallery Opening was a Roaring Success! Saturday, June 29th marked the official opening of The Erin Hanson Gallery in Glendale, California. Hundreds of Los Angeles art lovers, area locals and Erin Hanson collectors gathered for this celebratory evening.

The 2,000 square foot gallery was packed and the mood was electric, with flowing wine, delectable food donated by Granville Cafe and live musicians rocking out. The crowd favorite was Hanson’s 18-foot, 6-panel painting of the Grand Canyon, which garnered many gasps and effusive reactions. Hanson captured one of this world’s most spectacular panoramas in an altogether breathtaking way.

Hanson, an already popular Los Angeles based artist, found particular pride and joy in watching her fans reactions to the bold colors and magnificent scenery in her paintings. Her work is captured with a wet-on-wet technique that brings landscape painting to an unexpected level, and a few attendees couldn’t help but gingerly touch the paintings to trace the textured branches of a gnarled tree. “My goal as an artist is to bring beauty to the home - when I see my collectors smile from ear to ear I know that I have brought something magical to their lives and there is no greater feeling than that,” says Erin Hanson, lifelong painter and rapidly emerging virtuoso.
