Organized by Truro residents Nick Norman of 3Harbors Realty and Helen Addison of the Addison Art Gallery, “Celebrating Truro” brings together full- and part-time residents, visitors, artists and historians to celebrate at 3Harbors Realty, 11 Truro Center Road, Truro. Considered by many the “true” Cape Cod, Truro has a history going back to Pilgrim explorations, an abundance of preserved land, dramatically changing coastlines, and award-winning architecture. Today’s small farms, makers of unique products, and successful entrepreneurs add to the cultural fabric of best-selling authors and diversity of visual artists.
During the reception, Truro artists Marc Kundmann and Amy Sanders will be demonstrating painting in acrylic and pastel respectively. Graham Whitelaw, founder of Pamet Sightseeing and Historical Tours, and Beth Chapman of the Hopper House Tours, will be on hand answer questions and explain more about rarely seen spots in this idyllic town. Whitelaw will also be displaying samples of his found object beach mobiles. Dan Sanders, historian and Truro Historical Society volunteer, will also be sharing his knowledge of this unique town and those who are preserving its history for future generations. Addison, originator of After Hopper, will offer information on Edward Hopper’s influence on contemporary painters. Amy Costa of Cape Cod Kombucha will be offering tastings of various flavors.
The newly-refurbished 3Harbors Realty offices will be adorned with original paintings of Truro including plein air works completed that weekend. (On Saturday morning, May 26 you can find Susan Overstreet painting by Salty Market in downtown, North Truro, Catherine Skowron painting at Coast Guard Beach, and other artists and their easels scattered about.)
