Andrew Wyeth: Memory & Magic at the High

I’m not particularly an art afficianado (I know what I like, as the cliche goes) but I just stumbled into tickets to a shmooze-fest at the High Museum later this month. Seems there’s an exhibit of Andrew Wyeth paintings running November 12, 2005-February 26, 2006 entitled Andrew Wyeth: Memory & Magic.

More info on the show from

Approximately one hundred tempera paintings, watercolors, and drawings, many from the personal collection of Andrew and Betsy Wyeth, will be seen or shown together for the first time. The exhibition will focus on recurrent themes in the artist’s work, such as domestic interiors, vessels and architecture, intimate and panoramic landscapes, friends and family, and still-life subjects, many of which reflect personal as well as universally shared emotions and concepts. The works will be organized both chronologically and thematically to demonstrate how these subjects were born in Wyeth’s early career, became distinct in his middle period, and have been revisited in new and startling ways in recent years.
