This collection of impressionistic landscapes is a towering tribute to our National Parks, the source of much influence for this sought after contemporary artist.

10% of proceeds will benefit Zion National Park’s various youth programs, needed equipment and transportation for visitors.
“I am humbled that so many have responded passionately to this collection of works. The joy these parks bring me can only be topped by the support we are now able to offer one of my most beloved parks, Zion. Having visited this park yearly for the better part of my life, it is beautiful to be able to have my art give back and directly contribute to its preservation.” – Artist, Erin Hanson
“Erin's impressionistic landscape paintings have captured the hearts of many southern Utahns, as well as visitors from across the country and around the world, who love Zion National Park. It is only fitting that funds donated from this show and sale will benefit the park for years to come as they are used to enhance Zion's many art initiatives, and help continue the legacy of telling the canyon's story through the work of great painters.”
– Director Zion Natural History Association, Lyman Hafen
