GREENWICH, Conn. -- Artist Chuck Close's exhibit at The Bruce Museum in Greenwich will feature a lecture and dessert reception on Thursday.
The Bruce Museum is presenting the artist's work through Jan. 26 in the exhibit "Closer: The Graphic Art of Chuck Close," according to a news release from the museum. A lecture and film series will supplement the exhibition. The latest lecture "Of Hedgehogs and Foxes and Chuck Close" begins with a dessert reception at 6:30 p.m. and the show at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.
"With a body of work composed almost entirely of portraits, the American artist Chuck Close has been astounding us with his artistic verisimilitude for more than four decades," museum representatives said in the release. "His prints, especially, are adventures in problem solving: working from the particularities of each print medium – woodcut, etching, silkscreen, linocut, aquatint, pulp-paper multiple – he gives his imagination free rein to re-conceive their aesthetic possibilities."
The Bruce Museum is at One Museum Drive in Greenwich and is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and from 1 to 5 p.m. Sundays. Admission is $7 for adults, $6 for students up to 22 years, $6 for seniors and free for members and children under 5 years. For additional information, call the Bruce Museum at 203-869-0376 or visit the museum's website.
