The Farnsworth Art Museum will present a panel discussion titled Andrew Wyeth in Rockland: Our World on Thursday afternoon, Jan. 10. The discussion, including members of Rockland Historical Society and the Wyeth Study Center staff, will take place at 2 p.m. in the Farnsworth auditorium. It is free, but requires museum admission.

The panel will discuss Rockland history, as viewed through the lens of Andrew Wyeth’s watercolors in the exhibition “Andrew Wyeth in Rockland.” The Wyeth Study Center collaborated with the Rockland Historical Society for this exhibition, which is on view through Feb. 17. The historical society’s knowledgeable and passionate members helped make numerous connections between Wyeth’s paintings and Rockland history. In addition to assisting with exhibition research and fact checking, they told many stories that led to actual Rockland voices incorporated into the exhibition. The gallery includes these oral histories, which offer unique, local insights.

The panel discussion will be followed by a question and answer period. Snow date for this program is Friday, Jan. 11. Seating is limited; for more information or to register, visit
