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.
We will start with an oil painting demonstration by Maryalice Eizenberg at 4:00; the reception will run until 7:00. Eizenberg’s demonstration painting will be based on a building with architectural elements reminiscent of Hopper’s “Cape Cod Evening”. It has been unoccupied for many years and has that lonely feel often found in Hopper’s work. (Sadly, it is scheduled for demolition in September.)
We hope you can join us.
