Joanne Howard: Dream House
August 23 - October 19, 2014
Dream House, a new mixed media installation by Joanne Howard, explores the relationship between positive and negative space through a variety of media, including ceramic sculpture, and drawing. The interior of the Edward Hopper House never loses sight of its original function as a domestic space, and, by highlighting the negative areas around the objects and in the drawings, Howard encourages us to consider the “spiritual space” left behind in this, Edward Hopper’s boyhood home.

Mark Attebery: Twist and Shout
Sculpture in the Garden
Twist and Shout is a new work by multi-media artist Mark Attebery. Inspired by biological sources and the graceful naturalism of the material, the forged and welded steel sculpture, entitled Twist and Shout, reveals Attebery’s interest in exploring slow growth, the world beneath surface skins and life energy coursing through metal.
Before moving to New York, Attebery worked in California in professional photography and stained glass. He has over one hundred glass works installed throughout California.
In addition to working in the visual arts, he has had a busy career as a composer. He received commissions from the Oakland Ballet and Malashock Dance Co., one garnering an EMMY from a PBS documentary from a work premiered by the Arioso Wind Quintet. He received awards from Meet the Composer Inc., the San Diego Arts Commission and the Ann & Gordon Getty Foundation. His flute collection from around the world often makes its way into his recordings and live performances. His recordings of experimental clay instruments are included in a CD and book titled From Mud to Music by the American Ceramic Society. He currently teaches at the Fieldston School in New York.
A Photographic Journey through Hopper's World by Charles Sternaimolo
Ongoing upstairs at the Edward Hopper House
By searching through Josephine Hopper’s meticulous notes, studying the work of fellow Hopper scholars, checking with local residents and historians, and even walking through an area in search of a “Hopper scene,” photographer Charles Sternaimolo has identified and documented well over 150 places painted by the artist, culminating in a visual comparison through photography of Hopper’s painted locations.
