Hot Palette: Dianne Jean Erickson

August 4th – September 15th, 2017

Hot Palette art exhibit of encausti cpaintings by Dianne Jean Erickson at GRants Pass Museum of Art, Grants Pass, Oregon

Dianne Jean Erickson is a painter, printmaker and encaustic artist producing works of art both personal and universal in their nature.

“Each day working in my studio I start not knowing what image will emerge. I allow myself the freedom of indecisions, improvisations, and impulsiveness in my work, and that leads to exciting discoveries. Subjects of my encaustic (hot wax) work are non-objective and figurative painting and printmaking.

The exhibition highlights her encaustic paintings and encaustic monotypes. Her artwork is of a figurative and portraiture nature, with a whimsical series exploring head gear.

This exhibition is sponsored by Wealth Management Group of Oregon.

First Friday Live: August 4th and September 1st, from 5 – 9 pm

Admission is free.

Grants Pass Museum of Art’s Hours are 10 am – 5 pm, Tuesday through Saturday
