The Queen Anne’s County Arts Council is offering a bus trip to the Brandywine River Museum on Monday, March 23rd to see the Jamie Wyeth exhibit. This is an exclusive opportunity to see a major retrospective of over 100 works by the son of Andrew Wyeth and grandson of the celebrated illustrator N.C. Wyeth. As stated on the museum’s website; “Jamie Wyeth examines six decades of the artist’s career and charts the evolution of his creative process from his earliest childhood drawings through recurring themes inspired by the people, places and objects that populate his world.”
Thomas Padon, director of the Brandywine River Museum of Art said “We are thrilled to present the largest and most comprehensive survey of Jamie Wyeth’s art ever to be assembled. Jamie Wyeth’s paintings find special resonance here–in the galleries amidst our collection of paintings by his highly talented family and in the location of his childhood home, his first studio and his most consistent muse, the Brandywine Valley. Wyeth’s creative vision is powerfully conveyed in the extraordinary works in this exhibition.”
Often called the “Wyeth Museum” for its extensive collection of works by the internationally acclaimed family of artists, the Brandywine River Museum is housed in a 19th-century grist mill on the banks of the Brandywine in Chadds Ford, Pa. The trip includes transportation, museum admission and a guided tour of the exhibit, with time for lunch on your own in the café and further visit of the collection. The bus will pick up in Stevensville at 8:30am and Centreville at 9:00am and return by 4:30pm. Tickets are $65($60 members). Advance purchase required as space is limited.
