Brief DescriptionArt Exhibit
CategoryArt Gallery
DescriptionThe 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.

Reserve a ticket for a half-hour viewing during the extended hours on opening day. Opening day tickets are not required, but ticket holders have priority entry. The gallery capacity is limited to 10 people at any one time in order to facilitate social distancing.

Artists present their interpretations of what makes Hopper’s imagery quintessentially American: perseverance, fortitude, diversity, and an egalitarian spirit in spite of adversity, impoverishment, and social injustice. As February advances into the new year and a new hope, this show expresses the anthem of a new dawn: still we rise as one, stronger together.

The Del Ray Artisans gallery is ALX Promise certified and is committed to the health and safety of our visitors. Please wear a face mask and maintain 6' of personal space.
