|BRITISH COLUMBIA ARTISTS|
Erickson exhibited work in the 1941 B.C. Artists annual, and in the 1946 Jubilee exhibition, both held at the Vancouver Art Gallery. He was living in Vancouver at the time.
In 1982 Director Jack V. Long did a short documentary film on Erickson.
He later became one of Canada's most famous architects and designers, with signature projects such as the original Simon Fraser University Campus in Burnaby, the Museum of Anthropology at U.B.C., and the new Courthouse (1983) in downtown Vancouver being examples of his work in the Lower Mainland. The latter project included the relocation of the Vancouver Art Gallery itself into the former Courthouse on Georgia Street. He received the Order of Canada in 1973, and numerous other awards and honours.
