Rockland — On Saturday, April 15, in association with the opening of the exhibition “The Olson House: Photographers’ Muse,” the Farnsworth Art Museum will hold an artists’ talk in the museum’s auditorium at 1 p.m.

Led by Farnsworth Chief Curator Michael K. Komanecky, the talk will feature photographers Ewa Zebrowski, Brian Vanden Brink, Tillman Crane and Peter Ralston, who all have works included in the Wyeth Center exhibition.

Andrew Wyeth portrayed the house and its surroundings in some 300 works over 30 years, including the iconic “Christina’s World.” Mostly through its connection to the artist, the house became the subject for many photographers’ works through the years. “The Olson House: Photographers’ Muse” also includes works by Paul Caponigro, Linda Connor, James Moore, Bradley Prescott, Kosti Ruohomaa and George Tice.

The fee for this lecture is $8, $5 for Farnsworth members. For more information or to register for this event, visit farnsworthmuseum.org.
