About the Artist
With broad strokes and bright colors, Eric Hopkins captures the dynamic forces and patterns of nature in watercolors, oils, and blown glass. His creative process relies on immediate inspiration that transcends the specific and addresses a more abstract essense of his experiences. Through intimate study and close observation of natural forces, he has developed a keen awareness of light and color which is reflected in his recent work with molten glass. Born in 1951, Eric is a native of North Haven, Maine, where he has maintained studios and a gallery since 1990. A graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, Eric has taught at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts and Pilchuck Glass School and has exhibited at museums and galleries throughout the United States. In 2006, Eric expanded his studio and gallery space to 21 Winter Street in Rockland, Maine.
