From Mary Hackett to Marston Hodgin, from Helen Sawyer to Horace Snow, painters have flocked to the Outer Cape through the generations to capture the light, the vistas, the water, the dunes, the houses and the people of Truro.
Whether it’s William L’Engle’s painting of Cobb Farm (shown here) or Jerry Farnsworth’s mammoth portrait of a “Portuguese Fishermen”, we can catch a glimpse of history in every brushstroke they put to canvas.
The Highland House Museum is pleased to present “As They Saw It: Artists of Truro” a comprehensive exhibition of historic works by 20 noted “Truro” artists who were inspired to create paintings over the last 100 years.
These paintings, gathered from the collection of the Truro Historical Society and borrowed from Napi VanDereck, Diana Worthington, and other local collectors, pay tribute to the many men and women whose connection to Truro help us celebrate, in art, the 50th year anniversary of the Highland House Museum this summer. Join us in celebrating, through art, the colorful history of Truro.
