The show is a real stretch for a commercial gallery, but owner Ralph Burnet is unfazed. The two minimalist paintings he bought from Rieger now hang in guest rooms at the hotel, and he is eager to see what the artist is up to.

“Eric is a really good guy and we are really thrilled with what he’s doing,” Burnet said. “We just like to see new things and I’m not particularly concerned about the medium. It can be acrylic or yarn or collage. I just love art; I’m not picky. I’m interested in the way people express themselves and everybody does that in a different way, so seeing new art is just an adventure.”
