Reif Erickson opens show

Erickson Eagle Falls

"EAGLE FALLS" by Reif Erickson

The Blue Line Gallery in Roseville is very proud to present a one person show called “Natures Palette” by Reif Erickson.

Erickson is a nationally known artist with works in public, corporate and private collections throughout the United States, and Japan.

Erickson has been pursuing his art career for the last 20 years. He attributes much of that success to combining his continuing practice of painting “plein air” with close observation, refinement of color relationships, and technical expertise with the pastel medium, to achieve masterful landscapes of California and the Southwest.

A native of Eastern Washington, Erickson returned to university studies at the age of 26 and graduated with honors from Gonzaga University in 1981. Shortly thereafter, the Russian born colorist Sergei Bongart influenced Erickson to paint outdoors.

Recognized continually throughout his career for his talents, Erickson has won awards in numerous competitions.

His awards include: Award of Excellence (Best Quick Draw) La Quinta Desert Plein Air (2001); Best of Show, Yosemite Renaissance XVI traveling exhibition (2001); acceptance into the California Art Club Gold Medal Exhibition — Pasedena (1995, 2001, 2002); as well as one of 50 paintings chosen for the International IAPS Pastel Biennial Exhibition (2001). Erickson was the 1991 honoree by the Pastel Society of the West Coast as a Distinguished Pastellist.

He is a member of the prestigious California Art Club, a charter member of the Sierra Pastel Society, and past president of the Pastel Society of the West Coast.

The exhibition, “Natures Palette,” runs at the Blue Line Gallery, 405 Vernon St. in Roseville, from Jan. 19 to Feb.16, Tuesday through Saturdays, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. or by appointment.

There will be  an artist’s reception on Saturday, Jan.19. The reception opens to the public at 7 p.m.

Roseville Arts’ Blue Line Gallery is a non-profit community center for the arts.
