While in Cape Cod recently, I learned of an event that will delight fans of American painter Edward Hopper. For decades, Hopper lived in Truro, a small town just south of Provincetown. The Addison Gallery will collaborate with the Cape Cod Museum of Art to celebrate the work of contemporary artists who are inspired by Hopper and Cape Cod.
Plans for this celebration include exhibitions of new plein air and studio works, receptions, demonstrations, artist panels and talks by Hopper experts in 2015 and 2016.
The "After Hopper" event begins July 13, 2015, with a "paint-in" involving artists from across the U.S., all painting at various locations of their choosing, creating their own interpretations of scenes and the region that compelled Hopper.

Keep an eye on the event website to follow this initiative.
Both the Addison Gallery in Orleans and the Cape Cod Museum of Art in Dennis have impressive collections of paintings, photography and sculpture, well worth a visit if you are in the mid-Cape area.
