The Way Back: The Paintings of George A. Weymouth
This landmark exhibition of approximately sixty-five of Weymouth’s best works of art in all media will reveal the breadth of his visual investigations. From the loose energetic style and monochromatic palette of Weymouth’s early oils in the 1950s, the mature artist, mentored by his close friend Andrew Wyeth, used the mediums of watercolor and egg tempera to create haunting, hushed landscapes and powerful portraits.
The gardeners, designers, carpenters, and metal workers craft original displays each year to present orchids in unique ways. This year Longwood is producing a new form: orchid-wrapped columns rising in stately elegance from the floor of Exhibition Hall. Don’t worry, the famed towering 12-foot-tall archway made of Phalaenopsis orchids and the more than 200 Vanda hanging in the Silver Garden, will be on display again this year
