About this event
The great American painter Edward Hopper is famous for his canvases depicting the isolationist urban landscape as well as the sweeping solitude and unpopulated vacancy of the dunes of Cape Cod. His 1942 painting “Nighthawks” is Hopper’s most recognizable work. It is the visual narrative of a late-night New York City Greenwich Village diner scene, bereft of a bustling business, depicting three solo customers and a solemn soda jerk.
In the time of COVID-19, quarantines, shutdowns, lockdowns, orders of stay-at-home and safer-at-home have created a climate of extreme alienation and social deprivation. After Edward Hopper: Themes of Solitude and Isolation is the member-only show at Del Ray Artisans opening Friday, February 5 and on exhibit until Saturday, February 27, 2021.
