Jamie Wyeth was encouraged to seriously pursue art at a young age, but never attended art school. Instead, he left school at the age of 11 and received instruction at home from his aunt, a #surrealist painter, with critical guidance from his father. Visit #JamieWyeth, on view through Oct 5, to explore the artist's distinctive approach to #realism over the course of six decades. | Marc F. Henning Photography. #CrystalBridges
