ROCKLAND, ME.- The Farnsworth Art Museum announced an outstanding exhibition season that includes a complete re-installation of almost every gallery in the museum for the presentation of American Treasures: The Best of the Farnsworth Collection. The 2013 season also includes a major N.C. Wyeth exhibition, as well more intimate shows featuring works by Andrew Wyeth, and by Jonathan Fisher.

Opened on february 17, The Farnsworth presents American Treasures, an exhibition that celebrates Maine’s role in American art by displaying the very best among the over 13,000 works in the museum’s collection. On view, through a series of themed shows, are paintings, photographs and sculpture by many of America’s most important artists including Fitz Henry Lane, George Bellows, Childe Hassam, Marsden Hartley, Winslow Homer, Edward Hopper, John Marin, Elliot Porter, Louise Nevelson, Alex Katz, Robert Indiana and N.C., Andrew, and Jamie Wyeth.

American Treasures consists of several related exhibitions: Small Treasures (opened February 17), Other Voices (opens March 9), Maine Voices (opens May 18), and three that will open on June 1: New Visions, New Languages; Visions of the Land and Sea; and Family and Friends.

On April 27, the Farnsworth’s Wyeth Center will open a major exhibition entitled Every Picture Tells a Story: N.C. Wyeth Illustrations from the Brandywine River Museum. The exhibition includes 30 paintings by N. C. Wyeth, from early western pictures through Robert Louis Stevenson classics to Wyeth’s later illustrations in experimental styles. This exhibition is organized by Christine Podmaniczky, Associate Curator for the N.C. Wyeth collection at the Brandywine River Museum and author of the N.C. Wyeth catalogue raisonné.

The museum will also present two smaller exhibitions. Opening on March 23 will be A Wondrous Journey: Jonathan Fisher and the Making of Scripture Animals in the museum’s Craig Gallery. Andrew Wyeth: Her Room will be on display beginning in April in the Wyeth Study Center. In addition, summer 2013 will mark the reopening of the Farnsworth Homestead which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Homestead has been closed for the past two years for a preservation program addressing a range of exterior and interior needs. The primary media sponsor of American Treasures, Every Picture Tells a Story and The Making of Scripture Animals is Maine Home + Design.
