Tour artist Andrew Wyeth's studio while learning about his life and working methods. His library and items such as photos, fencing gear, military miniatures, costumes and props provide insight on his interests and sources of inspiration.
This tour offers visitors the opportunity to experience not only the environment where Wyeth created many of his memorable works of art, but also the home where he raised his extraordinarily creative children. Transportation to the House and Studio is by Brandywine River Museum shuttle bus only. Disabled individuals can be accommodated on the shuttle bus and at the House and Studio.
15 landscapes and portraits by noted artist George A. "Frolic" Weymouth (1936-2016) will be on view at the Brandywine River Museum of Art in a display organized in memory of the late artist. The exhibit will be presented in a gallery adjacent to the one where the work of Andrew Wyeth, a friend and mentor of Weymouth in tempera painting, is displayed.
In this exhibit, Leslie B. Grigsby, Winterthur's Senior Curator of Ceramics & Glass, presents a selection of some of the enormous range of ceramic vases and floral-decorated wares from the Winterthur Museum collection. These eye-catching objects primarily date from the 1700's and 1800's and, variously, were produced in America, Europe and Asia. The high-fashion wares among these ceramics originally found homes in elegant settings, while other objects reflect what was enjoyed by those of lesser means. Some of the featured floral designs studiously imitate imagery from botanical publications, while others display a freedom and originality not expressed in nature.
The Brandywine River Museum of Art will be offering free admission to visitors all day on the first Sunday of every month from February to November. Each "First Sunday for Families" will feature hands-on creative art activities sponsored by PNC Arts Alive and designed to engage visitors of all ages.
