Bob Seay, the Cape Cod based radio newsman for WGBH radio in Boston, will be bringing his program on artist Edward Hopper back to Chapel in the Pines, 220 Samoset Road in Eastham, this Sunday (July 24) and again on Sunday, Aug. 14. Both programs begin at 10 a.m.
Seay last spoke about Hopper during a talk at the Chapel, which is one of several Eastham structures that the artist featured in his works, in April. Since then, he's gathered more research on the subject and will include it the upcoming programs.
“I gained a tremendous appreciation for him as an artist,” Seay said back in April. “He’s deceptively simple. It’s really the work of a master. As time goes on, he is emerging as America’s most important 20th century artist. And the fact that he spent so much time on the Cape is really worth noting.”

UPDATE: July 26 at 8:45 a.m.: Regarding the August presentation of the Hopper program, Bob Seay posted this message on Facebook this morning: "Edward Hopper talk went very well and looking forward to a more detailed presentation now scheduled for Thursday night August 18th at 7 at the Chapel of course … join us!"
