> DESCRIPTION

An exhibition of original works by soldiers in “The Ghost Army,” an extraordinary World War II deception unit loaded with artists.  This top-secret group of GI’s helped win the war with inflatable tanks, sound effects and illusion.  As they travelled across the battlefields of Europe they documented everything, with watercolors, ink, and pastel, creating a vast array of artwork by some of the most talented artists of the era.  Artists in the unit included fashion designer Bill Blass, painter/sculptor Ellsworth Kelly, and wildlife artist Arthur Singer. This exhibition, specially curated for the Hopper House, will feature wartime paintings and sketches by more than 15 Ghost Army soldiers.  It includes Blass’s wartime sketchbook and exquisite Singer watercolors, as well as works by Rockland County Ghost Army veterans Bill Sayles and Ned Harris.
