Currently on display is an exhibition of Andrew Wyeth's works entitled Summers in Port Clyde—Watercolors from the 1930s and Early 1940s.
 

The Farnsworth Art Museum has had a long-standing relationship with Andrew Wyeth. It was in 1944, four years before the Farnsworth even opened, that the museum purchased watercolors by the emerging young artist. In 1951, the museum, in collaboration with the Currier Gallery (now the Currier Museum of Art) in Manchester, New Hampshire, mounted Andrew Wyeth's first solo museum retrospective

Amy Morey  will lead visitors through this exhibition during a 30-minute gallery tour.
