Erin Ross Description

Erin is extremely engaged in her community.  She believes in promoting art as a crucial social investment in Edmonton, not only through her board work, but also by volunteering her time to assist on creative projects.  She was a pecha kucha presenter at the Mayor’s Think Tank: Our Arts, Our City, and has worked with the cities Arts Visioning Committee.  She believes in promoting art as a crucial social investment. 

Erin has been a director on the CTV Good Neighbour Fund board for the last 10 years, and chaired its largest annual fundraiser, The Poor Boys Luncheon, for 4 of those years.  She previously sat on the Latitude 53 board, as well as their fundraising committee, and was a co-chair and member of ArtsScene Edmonton.

Erin was also part of a 3 woman urban intervention team, LIVINGbridge, which imagined, organized and implemented the planting of a sustainable, largely edible community garden on an abandoned rail bridge in the heart of downtown Edmonton.  

A statement on her landscape work:

My work is a reflection of where I come from and how I relate to my surroundings.  With my landscape pieces, I take the romantic idea of the prairies, the “golden west”, then blow it apart and explore it.  They are melancholic and beautiful in their exploration of landscape and the “dark pastoral”.  

My work acknowledges traditional styles and genres of painting and drawing, but in an unexpected way.  I like playing with nostalgia, familiarity and perception, and I have a deep interest in color theory.

I use memory, personal and found photos as influence.
