Experience the Continuity of Creativity The spotlight shines on six artists who have deeply engaged with the farm’s landscape, exploring its lines, shadows, and shapes through their participation in the Drawing & Painting with Karl J. Kuerner classes. These sessions, offered seasonally, allow artists to follow in the footsteps of the legendary Andrew Wyeth, finding their own inspiration within the same environs.

The event coincides with the museum’s special exhibition, “Karl J. Kuerner: The Continuity of Creativity,” which examines Karl J. Kuerner’s enduring commitment to the farm’s legacy and his own artistic journey. For more than 70 years, Kuerner Farm served as a major source of inspiration to Andrew Wyeth, significantly influencing the farm’s current steward, Karl J. Kuerner III, in his roles as both a painter and an art teacher​​​​​​.
