Painters and Paintings of Rockland County, NY: The Hopper Years
Dates: February 22 - April 13, 2014
Curator: Mark Waller
Opening reception: Friday, February 21, 2014, 6-8 PM
The Edward Hopper House Art Center presents Painters and Paintings of Rockland County, NY: The Hopper Years from February 22 through April 13, 2014. Organized by Mark Waller, this exhibition comes on the 30th anniversary of the Edward Hopper House’s groundbreaking exhibition, 19th Century Painters and Paintings of Rockland County, N.Y., curated by Lynn Beman. This updated presentation brings some of Rockland County’s lesser known artists into focus, providing a backdrop to the art created in the county during the life of its most famous son, Edward Hopper.
The exhibition will show the depth of the artistic communities around Rockland Lake, Nyack and South Mountain Road during these critical years of Modern Art. 2013 was the 100th anniversary of the pivotal Armory Show organized by another Rocklander, A.B. Davies. The current exhibition will feature works showing the influence of the Modern Movement, and help expand awareness of the Rockland County artists who formed this ‘cradle of modernism.’ It will also offer a fascinating visual journey of the county through the century, illustrating the changes in geography and attitudes during that period. Artists include A.B. Davies, Hayley Lever, C.K. Chatterton, John Mowbray Clarke, John Costigan, Hal Robinson, Jacob Getlar Smith and others. An illustrated catalogue will be available.
