BLOW-UP

How does Chuck Close make his paintings look like photos? See for yourself at “Chuck Close Photo Maquettes,” a new exhibition that gives a behind-the-scenes look into his process with a display of more than 20 photo maquettes—primarily large-format Polaroids that he draws a precise grid on to assist in his re-creation of it on canvas. As you read Close’s scribbles along the edges, you’ll find a deeper appreciation for the painstaking process that goes into making his famous portraits of friends and artists such as Elizabeth Murray, Philip Glass and, of course, himself.
Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m. Starts: April 16. Continues through May 24, 2013
