Spring is a season of beauty and rebirth after a cold winter, so it’s no surprise that is also the season to celebrate the arts. From fine arts by top American artists to an amazing free studio art tour, Chester County’s Brandywine Valley is an art lovers paradise.

Brandywine Museum Father & SonThe Brandywine Museum of Art, located on the banks of the beautiful Brandywine River, is a restored 19th century grist mill that is home to a treasure trove of art. The museum is known internationally for its fine collection American illustration, still life and landscapes. Most notably, the Museum showcases the work of three generations of the Wyeth family: N.C., Andrew, and Jamie. Beginning April 3 through November 24, 2024 three studio tours are open to the public: The Andrew Wyeth Studio, The N.C. Wyeth House & Studio, and the Kuerner Farm.  Tours are a fantastic way to immerse into the world of these prolific artists. Transportation from the Museum is provided and the tours require a separate admission.

Jamie Wyeth’s unique work is explored in the upcoming exhibition Jamie Wyeth: Unsettled on view from March 16 to June 9, 2024. Unsettled will center on darker imagery - whether in character or landscape. Often the beauty of art is the power to evoke emotion in the beholder. This exhibition highlights Jamie’s visual storytelling with works that elicit a sense of anxiety or trepidation.
