Meet Philip and see his work at 5:30, and then at 6, he will give a talk and slide presentation on Hopper’s legacy of Cape Cod, with an emphasis on the Truro studio. Discussion will follow.
The Highland House Museum is located on Highland Light Road in North Truro. The Museum occupies one of Truro’s best known landmarks, the old Highland House, a hotel built on the Highlands in 1907. Located near the Highland Light in North Truro, it is a classic example of a turn-of-the-century summer resort hotel. A visit to the museum provides fascinating insight into the lives of the people of Truro dating back to early European settlers and the Native Americans that preceded them. Donations are graciously accepted.
It was seeing the light in Edward Hopper’s work that inspired Philip Koch early in his painting career to change from abstraction to realism. Koch, a nationally recognized landscape painter, has been granted over 15 residencies in Hopper’s former studio in Truro on Cape Cod. 14 American Art museums hold Koch’s work in their permanent collections.
Donations for the Highland House Museum will be gratefully accepted.
