Gallery Talk: The Wyeths, Maine and the Sea

Dates: 
April 26, 2014
Times: 
Saturday, 2 p.m.
Location: 
Wyeth Center Lobby
Farnsworth Registrar Angela Waldron, who organized The Wyeths, Maine and the Sea, will give a gallery talk on the opening weekend of this exhibition.  The art of the Wyeths – N.C., Andrew and Jamie – is a direct result of their familiarity with and fascination for life along midcoast Maine, reaching back to N.C.’s decision to bring his family to the area in 1920.  The Wyeths’ interests have included the coast’s dramatic shoreline and islands, including Monhegan, the lives of fishermen and farmers, and the boats, houses, barns, lighthouses and other structures scattered throughout the midcoast.  Their interest in these subjects is part of a long-standing tradition of work done by artists and artisans in Maine since the eighteenth century.

Free with museum admission.
The tour will meet in the Wyeth Center lobby.
