Get Close

The work of painter, photographer and printmaker Chuck Close is constructed on a grid, so it can be "interrupted repeatedly without...damaging the final product." An artist who accommodates interruptions? Sounds like a realist to us. But the grids, which remain visible in the finished product, comprise Close's trademark style, which looks digitally produced but is done by hand, sometimes taking years to complete. The exhibition runs through February 10 at the Dunn and Brown Contemporary, 5020 Tracy St. Admission is free. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, and by appointment.
