Lisbeth (Beth) Wiley Chapman is self-described as a lover of family history, not an art history expert. She has summered in South Truro since birth, and her childhood playground consisted of the five square miles that Edward Hopper memorialized in numerous watercolors and oil paintings during the 34 hears he summered there. 

Beth lived in Wellfleet, year-round, for 17 years and now lives in North Truro. The realization that Hoppers had painted her father's family's farm in South Truro five times started her on a quest in 2009 to identify as many buildings and vistas painted by him in this area as possible. She was a speaker on Hopper’s Truro paintings during the Summer of 2009 for the 300th Celebration of the founding of Truro. Friends who attended those lectures eventually convinced her to start a tour company. 

Consequently, Ms. Chapman ran tours of some of Edward Hopper's houses and landscapes in Wellfleet and South Truro beginning in 2013.  In 2017, with a new itinerary, the tour visited North and South Truro, starting at the Highland Light lighthouse in North Truro.  In 2020, bending to the difficulties of the Pandemic and the increasingly obscured landscape, the tours were permanently closed.  Passionate to continue interpreting the work of both Hoppers, Beth formed Hopper After Dinner to use her knowledge and research to bring her vibrant illustrated lecture into your private homes - for any size audience - and organizations.

Beth has toured numerous art curators including for Harvard Art Museums and the Whitney Museum of American Art.

Hopper After Dinner lectures showcase sixty works painted in Wellfleet and Truro in a  1½ hour presentation.
