Member Preview & Happy Hour: Andrew Wyeth

Wed Oct 18 2017

Seattle Art Museum

Entire Building


All SAM members are invited to a preview of Andrew Wyeth: In Retrospect. This exhibition follows the evolution of one of America’s most famous painters by bringing together well-known and rarely seen works. From depictions of his life in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, to the coastal villages of Maine, Wyeth created timeless images of places, people, and things—layered with acute observation and a boundless imagination—all imbued with the artist’s mysterious temperament. Often out of synch with the time, Wyeth’s art challenges norms of realism and abstraction.
