Weir Farm and Beyond: The Art of Sperry Andrews
This exhibit highlights art created by C. Sperry Andrews, the last resident of the Weir House. Throughout his residency at Weir Farm, Sperry embraced the artistic tradition it held. He created thousands of paintings and drawings during his time at the farm, with numerous images of the farm itself. There are over 30 original works including views of Weir Farm and the nearby towns of Ridgefield, Wilton, Danbury, Bethel and Brookfield which show both landscapes and some interior views. Several different forms of media are included; from a large scale oil on canvas painting of the Weir House to a series of nine small pencil sketches depicting a 1973 train derailment in Redding, CT. "We are thrilled to feature so many stunning pieces by Sperry Andrews and provide visitors the opportunity to see more original artwork associated with the history of the park," said Superintendent, Linda Cook.
