The Farnsworth Art Museum will host a book signing with artist Jamie Wyeth and Susan Goldman Rubin, author of the new book “Everybody Paints! The Lives and Art of the Wyeth Family,” Thursday, Aug. 7, from 2 to 4 p.m. at the museum’s Wyeth Center at the corner of Union and Grace streets.

In this distinctive volume, acclaimed biographer Rubin shares the fascinating story of the Wyeths — N.C., Andrew and Jamie —three generations of painters and arguably the First Family of American Art. The accessible text traces the events that shaped their art and the ways their art influenced them in return, while the crisp design showcases gorgeous reproductions of the works that have made the Wyeth family legendary.

Both the author and artist will be available to sign copies of the book, as well as prints and other items. Only two items will be signed per person. This event is free, and no reservations will be taken.
