Seasonal Special Happenings

Radical Innovator

When: Fri., Nov. 8 2013

Chuck Close: Radical Innovator, the award-winning, New York-based artist Chuck Close's new exhibition, that opens tonight at the Contessa Gallery, has the perfect name. It describes both the exhibition and the man who created it. Close, who works almost exclusively in portraiture, is known among artistic communities as the man who consistently breaks artistic boundaries and challenges himself and his audiences. The 30-plus pieces on display at the Contessa Gallery speak to Close's edgy, avant-garde style and will feature limited edition prints, including archival watercolor pigment prints, Polariod print screens, gridded working moquettes and the like. An opening reception takes place tonight and tomorrow night from 6 to 9. This event is free and open to the public. (McConnell)
