Living Local

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) — The Peninsula Fine Arts Center is gearing up to open its first new exhibition since reopening the doors in June.

“The Wyeths: Three Generations, Works from the Bank of America Collection” will showcase the artwork of the three generations of Wyeth family men; N.C. Wyeth, Andrew Wyeth, and Jamie Wyeth. They’re inherently one of the most famous families in American Art.

As a special treat, Victoria Wyeth — granddaughter of Andrew Wyeth — will be hosting lectures for the opening of the exhibit. She will provide further insight into the 74 artworks on display, including the difference in artistic style between each family member.

The exhibit also features the work of a local artist and Christopher Newport University alumnus, Ryan Lyle. He created a custom textile installation inspired by Jamie Wyeth’s children’s book illustrations.
