Perhaps the most distinctive quality of Eric Michaels work is its international flavor. Painting in these far-flung locations has given him a keen grasp of local light conditions and has allowed him to participate in the native experience. His deep empathy and technical virtuosity take him straight to the heart of the human pageants he portrays. Michaels has exhibited at the Royal Watercolor Society in London, nine years at the Artists of America Show in Denver, and is a regular exhibitor in the Great America Artists Exhibition in Cincinnati. His paintings hang in private, corporate museum and state collections including the Albuquerque Museum of Fine Art, the Americana Museum, the Institute of American Indian Arts, Phillips Petroleum, IBM, and the State Collection of the Governor’s Gallery, Santa Fe, NM.
