“Maple Dance” by Erin Hanson.
Public invited to gallery anniversary
Scripps Ranch artist Erin Hanson invites the public to celebrate two years of The Erin Hanson Gallery in San Diego with an anniversary event from 5 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 9 at 9705 Carroll Centre Road.
Those attending the celebration can expect to view vibrant colors, bold lines and vast landscapes. Guests may enjoy Hanson’s most recent works along with live music and refreshments.
The Erin Hanson Gallery moved to San Diego from Los Angeles two years ago, allowing the artist time to explore the area’s diverse environment. Erin Hanson is a modern master impressionist, capturing landscapes across the U.S. and the world. She has recently painted pieces depicting local, San Diego landscapes including Torrey Pines, Black’s Beach, La Jolla and the local eucalyptus in Scripps Ranch. Many of Hanson’s pieces celebrate the natural beauty of the California coast, the local wine country, vast deserts and diverse plant life.
A life-long painter, Hanson began her study of oils as a young child. Her passion for natural beauty can be seen in her work as she transforms both familiar and rare vistas 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.
