I have a few art crushes and one of them is the amazing Andrew Wyeth.
With the 100th anniversary of Andrew Wyeth's birth, the Seattle Art Museum will exhibit Andrew Wyeth In Retrospect examining this American master’s 75-year career. And if that weren't heady enough, the Portland Art Museum is exhibiting The Wyeths: Three Generations, featuring art by N.C. Wyeth, one of America’s finest illustrators; his son Andrew, an important realist painter (and art crush of yours truly); Andrew’s son Jamie, a popular portraitist; and members of the extended family.
So I've planned a trip to Portland and you are invited to join me!
Round Trip Edmonds to Portland by train, two nights at the Paramount Hotel, and entrance into the Wyeths Three Generations exhibit
We will catch the train from Edmonds on Friday January 12 at 10:17am. It is about a five hour ride to Portland so settle in for the beautiful views and relax.
We will stay at the Paramount Hotel (.2 miles from the museum).
On Saturday we will visit the Portland Museum to see the Wyeths Three Generations exhibit.
There will be a lot of free time for everyone to explore Portland on their own or with each other. For those interested, we will have a group dinner Saturday evening.
We will leave Portland on Sunday, January 14, on the 2:50pm train, arriving in Edmonds around 7:30pm.
Portland is a fun city to visit. Just walking around, shopping, eating, drinking, and sketching could keep you busy all weekend. Other things to do:
Portland Japanese Garden (https://japanesegarden.org)
The DIY Craft and Sip Bar (https://www.diybar.co)

Deadline to register is October 16!
