Aug 13: “Edward Hopper’s Eastham” with Bob Seay

“EDWARD HOPPER’S EASTHAM” Presented by Bob Seay

Recording available here:

Nauset Fellowship member Bob Seay continues his exploration of Edward Hopper’s sketches, watercolors and oils done in Eastham. Bob reveals the locations of many of Hopper’s subjects and speculates on what attracted him to the town.  This attraction mystified his wife Jo who wrote: “Eastham is his happy hunting ground and it’s the least attractive township on the Cape and could be Westchester or New Jersey.”  Nevertheless, she admitted “It’s incredible what he has unearthed there.”

Bob Seay, an Eastham resident, is the transportation reporter for GBH News. He formerly hosted Morning Edition for GBH News, and has worked as a broadcast journalist for more than three decades. Before joining GBH, Bob was Morning Edition host at Rhode Island Public Radio and the director of community radio station WOMR in Provincetown. For more than 15 years, he was the news and public affairs director at WQRC in Hyannis covering Cape Cod and the islands. Bob has also worked as a host on WBUR.
