Summer Places: Upcoming at Left Bank Gallery, Wellfleet, Ma, August 27 to September 9 2011
The Left Bank Gallery in Wellfleet will be exhibiting new work under the show title “Summer Places” from August 27 through September 9. This new piece, “Truro Cottage” depicts a once typical beachside cottage along Shore Road, with Pilgrim Lake in the background. Though these small, humble summer cottages still dot the Lower Cape landscape, many have been replaced by massive trophy homes. Like Hopper’s small, simple Truro summer home, there is something universally appealing to these old summer places…their stoic ability to withstand fierce weather, to have housed generations of sandy-footed children, and simply to have survived time.
