The Edward Hopper exhibition at the Middlebury College Museum of Art is now closed (alas!), and the original watercolors and drawings that Hopper made in Vermont are now on their way back to their permanent homes in other museums and private collections.
Fortunately, you can still see full color reproductions of Hopper’s watercolors, including five that were not in the Middlebury exhibition, in my book, Edward Hopper in Vermont (University Press of New England, 2012).
In addition, this fall you can hear me talk about Hopper’s time in Vermont and my adventures in researching and writing the book, Edward Hopper in Vermont. I have presentations, with slides of Hopper’s works and book signings, scheduled for the following dates and locations:
Thursday, September 26, HANOVER, NH
* Institute for Lifelong Education at Dartmouth (ILEAD), 3:00 P.M.
Sunday, October 6, MANCHESTER, VT
* Southern Vermont Arts Center, 2:00 p.m.
Monday, October 7, SOUTH BURLINGTON, VT
* Elder Education Enrichment Program, Variety Series #1, 2:00 p.m.
I’ll post the details about each of these presentations in September. In the meantime, the book is available through your preferred vendor — and of course I urge you to patronize your nearest independent bookseller!
