After Hopper in Truro – Plein Air Painting, artist reception and panel discussion

August 7, 2017 - August 11, 2017

In Edward Hopper’s Town Exhibition

Artists and collectors flock to Cape Cod from all across the globe, just to see the sites that Edward Hopper painted. Half a century after his death, new generations continue to be inspired by his work and the area that this great American painter chose as his home. Creative people in all fields learn from those who have gone before: while honoring their teachers, they add their own talents and experience, their own selves, and make something new. Acknowledging and ever grateful for Edward Hopper’s influence, “After Hopper” celebrates the artists of today who continue to pursue Hopper’s path in their own unique ways. NO RESERVATIONS NECESSARY; Please plan to join us when your schedule allows!
