Talk: Edward Hopper in Vermont
Dorset Historical Society will host a talk on Bonnie Tocher Clause’s ‘Edward Hopper in Vermont,’ on Thursday, October 16, at 12 noon. Edward Hopper is one of America’s most famous artists, but the works that he made in Vermont have remained relatively unknown. Clause tells the story of his summer excursions to Vermont between 1927 and 1938, and describes her research in locating his Vermont works and the places where they were made. Her talk will be illustrated with slides and photographs, old and new. She will also discuss Hopper’s connections with some of the Southern Vermont Artists of the 1920s and ‘30s.
Bonnie Tocher Clause, like Edward Hopper, is a native New Yorker who found peace and beauty in Vermont’s White River Valley. In 2010, after 40 years in university and nonprofit administration, Clause embarked on a new path as a writer and an independent scholar. ‘Edward Hopper in Vermont’is her first book.
The lunchtime lecture will be held at the Dorset Historical Society’s Bley House Museum, at the corner of Route 30 and Kent Hill Road, across from the Dorset Library. It is free and open to the public. Bring your lunch and enjoy dessert afterward.
