Edward Hopper House Presents MILTON GLASER: LANDSCAPE PRINTS, September 7 - November 4, 2018, with Opening Reception, Thursday, September 13, 6:30 - 8:30pm

Edward Hopper House Museum & Study Center is pleased to announce an exhibition of landscape prints by renowned graphic designer Milton Glaser

The opportunity to exhibit in Edward Hopper’s home is one that Mr. Glaser has taken as both a great honor and an impetus to create his latest and most personal works to date.

The exhibition has drawn attention to a number of connections shared between the two artists and their artistic development, including the influence of time spent in Europe as young men, the resulting decision of each to turn toward a different artistic medium, and a mutual love for the Hudson Valley.

This show will feature numerous landscape explorations influenced by the late monotypes of Edgar Degas, which are also reminiscent of Hopper’s early paintings. In each case, Glaser begins with a drawing – in black and white or color – made from both memory and observation. He then uses a range of digital processes to layer a variety of patterns on top of and below the image, effectively creating a virtual lithographic press. This procedure, which enables him to discern and control the slightest changes in color, has resulted in a series of new works by Glaser that offer an at-once-familiar but unique perspective on the natural beauty of the Hudson Valley.

Milton Glaser is among the most celebrated graphic designers in the world today. His work has been featured in exhibitions and museums throughout the world, including one-man-shows at the Museum of Modern Art and the Georges Pompidou Center. He is the recipient of lifetime achievement awards from both the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum and the Fulbright Association.

In 1974, he opened Milton Glaser, Inc., where he continues to produce a prolific amount of work, including the iconic I ❤ N Y symbol; perhaps the most replicated symbol of our time. He is also co-founder of New York Magazine and Push Pin Studios.

An exhibition poster and special edition post card books designed by Milton Glaser will be available for sale at Edward Hopper House.


As part of this exhibition, there will be an Interview with Milton Glaser by Ken Carbone on Saturday, October 13th, 2018 at 2pm.

Local residing design guru Ken Carbone will be interviewing Milton Glaser and will touch on Glaser’s long and creative career that continues to transform corporations, organizations and everyday imagery, Carbone will provide the setting and context for the artist (Glaser) to share his approach to art. There is no fine art vs. commercial art to Glaser, it is all art, and it this devotion to the creative process that guides his powerful vision.

Edward Hopper House Presents "Richard Tuschman: HOPPER MEDITATIONS" Opening August 18, 2017

The Edward Hopper House  is pleased to present Richard Tuschman: Hopper Meditations from August 18 through October 29, 2017.

In these photographs, Tuschman (b. 1956) pays homage to Edward Hopper’s unique vision by creating staged scenes of fictional narrative “moments” that echo in subject and mood many of Hopper’s renowned images.

While the effect may recall Hopper’s iconic paintings, Tuschman’s process is much different. He starts by building dollhouse-sized dioramas with painstaking precision and detail. He photographs the diorama and then incorporates images of live models--including himself--into the scene.

Tuschman’s pictures, like Hopper’s, are imbued with a sense of anticipation, ambiguity and often sexual tension.

Trained as a painter and printmaker, Tuschman began experimenting with digital imaging in the early 1990s with the introduction of Photoshop: “Photoshop came naturally to me, and seemed much more analogous to painting and printmaking (which was good for me) than a traditional darkroom.

After that, my career in photo-illustration took off.” He has exhibited his work throughout the US and abroad. Awards include the Prix de la Photographie Paris (Gold Medal, People's Choice), Critical Mass Top 50, International Kontinent Awards (1st Place, Fine Art Projects) and Center Project Launch Juror's Award (chosen by Roger Watson, Fox Talbot Museum).

His photographs have can be seen on book covers and have been published in numerous online publications including Slate, LensCulture, LensScratch and Huffington Post. In 2016 he was named a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellow in Photography. He lives and works in New York City.

Rivertown Film Society Presents Film PEGGY GUGGENHEIM: ART ADDICT

peggy-guggenheim-art-addict

Rivertown Film Society is presenting the film PEGGY GUGGENHEIM: ART ADDICT at the Nyack Center on Wednesday, June 8th at 8pm.

A discussion will follow with Karole P. B. Vail, granddaughter of Peggy Guggenheim and Dr. Jennifer Patton, Executive Director of the Hopper House Art Center. Karole Vail is a curator at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, where she has worked since 1997.

The heiress Peggy Guggenheim’s life was intertwined with art. During her travels, she fell in with the Dadaists in Paris in the 1920s, and is credited with introducing Britain to Modern Art. Back in New York, she gave first shows in her gallery to every major Abstract Expressionist. A shrewd collector, she moved to Venice where she bought a palazzo and created a museum of her works.

A sleek portrait of the ultimate arts patron. Directed by Lisa Immordino Vreeland, 2015, Italy/USA/UK, 96 minutes, documentary.
