Napa Disaster Relief

Sunday, October 15, 2017

California artist Erin Hanson visited Napa Valley just one month before the recent fires, exploring the terrain to find inspiration for her impressionistic oil paintings. After hearing about the disaster, the young artist decided she must do something to help.  "California wine country has always been one of my biggest sources of inspiration, and the landscape is beloved by locals and travelers alike," says the artist.

Hanson came up with the idea of selling her popular coffee table book, California Wine Country, and donating 100% of the proceeds to the two disaster relief funds below.  For one month, for every book sold on Amazon or on her website, she will donate the full $65, split evenly between these two charities:

Napa Valley Community Disaster Relief Fund
Sonoma Humane Society

The artist also declared she will donate 10% of the proceeds from the four paintings she created after her recent trip to Napa last month.  Just in the first two weeks, Erin Hanson raised over $3,000 to help families and animals in need.

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 havens of nature include backpacking expeditions, rock climbing, and photo safaris.  Hanson's unique painting style has become known as Open Impressionism, which is now taught in art schools around the world. 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, and she is quickly recognized as a prolific, modern master.
