    Exciting Jamie Wyeth show creates a mob scene

    It is always pleasing to be invited to the opening of an important art show, and the Brandywine River Museum of Art created it last weekend. It opened the largest retrospective exhibition of work by artist Jamie Wyeth, and it is a fascinating show.
