Nyack’s celebrated native son, Edward Hopper, has left his mark on so much of our culture that we sometimes take it for granted…. “Hopperesque” is an evocative term often used to describe the emotional revelations experienced through the exploration of simple, everyday situations, particularly through the use of natural light. A piece in this week’s New York Times about Terrence Malick’s celebrated new film “The Tree of Life” includes a comment from Production Designer Jack Fisk…. "Generally what I did in the film was to simplify the backgrounds as much as possible," Production designer Jack Fisk said. "Terry and I have done that from the beginning. Initially we did it because we had no money. But then we found out it was actually stronger to have fewer elements in a setting. "I took my cues from Edward Hopper who, if you look at his paintings, does not put anything extra in them." The Village of Nyack and the Hopper House gallery take a close look at the artist’s early life and work in a marvelous, highly personal exhibit at his childhood home during the next two months. What: "Edward Hopper, Prelude: The Nyack Years" Where: Hopper House Art Center, 82 N. Broadway, Nyack. When: Opens May 21. Viewing hours are 11 a.m.-5:45 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday, May 21 to July 17. There will be special viewing times for seniors as well as some evening hours.
