go see Chuck

Chuck Close exhibit at Greg Kucera
October 4-November 10

212 Third Ave S
Seattle WA 98104


His inventiveness is inspiring. His portraits are humane and compelling even as they dazzle technically. And it is something of an artistic miracle the way he builds form from squiggles of color...even to a painter.

Also showing, and worth the trip in his own right, is Drew Daly. Eloquently manipulated furniture and distorted photographs. And upstairs: prints by the quilters of Gee's Bend. A satisfying show all around.

"Lyle" by Chuck Close
