‘Hawthorne, Hofmann and Hopper’ exhibit to open

The work and influence of two of Provincetown’s legendary art teachers will be the focus for Provincetown Art Association and Museum’s “Hawthorne, Hofmann and Hopper — Preserving a Legacy” exhibit. With works pulled from the museum’s permanent collection, the exhibit highlights Charles Hawthorne and Hans Hofmann as artists and teachers by juxtaposing examples of their work with that of some of their students. Work by artist Edward Hopper will also be showcased, but more of an influence on other artists than a teacher. In addition to these three masters, the exhibition will also include works by Edwin Dickinson, Robert Henry, John Noble, Lillian Orlowsky, Houghton Crawford Smith and Selina Trieff, among others.

When: Friday through Aug. 29

Where: Provincetown Art Association and Museum, 460 Commercial St.

Admission: $12.50 general admission; free for PAAM members and children 16 and younger
