POSTPONED TO NEXT WEDNESDAY, MARCH 28, DUE TO THE STORM!
Wednesday Night Lecture/Virtual Tour – Wednesday, March 21, Special Time: starts at 6:30 p.m., “Edward Hopper: Capturing the Outer Cape Light”, presented by tour director Beth Chapman.
From 1930 to 1964, Edward and his wife Josephine spent summers in South Truro, first in a tiny rental where Edward painted on the screened-in porch for four summers, and then in the 1,000 square foot studio they built in 1934. He captured the famous Cape Cod light using both watercolor and oil to paint landscapes, churches, homes, sheds, chicken coops and barns. This lecture discusses more than 50 of his Truro and Wellfleet paintings. Ms. Chapman has deep roots in South Truro (Hopper painted her family’s farm five times), and describes herself as a lover of family history, not an art history expert. Ms Chapman has been running tours of some of Edward Hopper’s houses and landscapes in Wellfleet and Truro throughout the summer and fall. Free and open to the public; no tickets required.
