ERIC

HOPKINS

Am. b. 1951

Eric Hopkins

With broad strokes and bright colors, Eric Hopkins captures the dynamic forces and patterns of nature in watercolors, oils, blown glass, and photography. Regardless of his chosen medium, Eric’s creative process relies on immediate inspiration, which transcends the specific and addresses a more abstract essence of his experiences. His vision focuses on the Big Picture—the natural world, geological and geographical forms, and the exchange of energy between Earth, Water, and Sky. 

 

A native of North Haven Island, Maine, Eric is a graduate of Rhode Island School of Design and has taught at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts and Pilchuck Glass School. He has exhibited at the Farnsworth Art Museum, the Portland Museum of Art, the Center for Maine Contemporary Art and a number of galleries nationally. Eric’s paintings and works in glass are held in many private and public collections, including the Farnsworth Art Museum, Portland Museum of Art and the Corning Museum of Glass. He is also represented in the corporate collections of L.L. Bean, Johnson Wax and Idexx Laboratories.
