Featured Artist

Erin Pryor Gill

Erin Pryor Gill is a Lehigh Valley artist skilled in pastels, oils, and various printmaking techniques. Living in Bethlehem with her husband and their three sons, she is inspired daily by the surrounding landscape and historic architecture.

Erin majored in painting and printmaking at Alfred University and received a BFA in Illustration from Rochester Institute of Technology. After several years as a freelance illustrator and graphic designer, she is now focused professionally on her own artwork. She enjoys painting outdoors, in addition to studio work, and has been juried into a number of plein air events including Plein Air Brandywine Valley and Paint Out Chadds Ford. Erin is on the board of the Lehigh Art Alliance and is a signature member of the Pastel Society of New Jersey. She regularly exhibits her work in regional and national juried shows.

“I love landscape painting because there are so many actual, nearby places that I love. I simplify detail, emphasize color, and embrace painterly strokes, but strive to convey a real sense of light and particular place. I’m honored to be selected to represent Historic Bethlehem as the featured artist this year, and excited to share my view of this captivating city.”  -Erin Pryor Gill
