SHELBURNE — Three generations of this country’s best-known family of artists will be represented at an exhibit opening June 22 at Shelburne Museum. “Wyeth Vertigo” examines extreme perspectives, unconventional angles, and powerful narratives in 36 works by N.C., Andrew, and Jamie Wyeth. The exhibition is organized around the museum’s monumental painting “Soaring” by Andrew Wyeth (1917-2009) and preparatory drawings made for “Soaring” on loan from the Museum of Fine Arts. “Soaring” positions the viewer directly above turkey buzzards in flight gazing down on a wheat field and diminutive white farmhouse.
