We are proud to announce that we are opening a permanent exhibition about the lives of Edward and Jo Hopper in Truro. The exhibition focuses on the local experiences of Edward Hopper and his wife Jo, also a painter, who owned a small cottage on the bayside of Truro from the 1930’s until his death in 1967.
The exhibition features images of Hopper paintings of local houses next to photographs of these houses as they exist today. Most of the photographs were created by Janis Hersh, who herself lives in an area of Truro that was the subject of many Hopper paintings. A preview of these images are available on her website: https://www.janishershphotography.com/hoppers-houses/
The Truro Historical Society’s Hopper collection also includes paintings by Jo, hand-made rugs used in the Studio and several dresses made and worn by Jo.
