Magnolia's Donald and Era Farnsworth recently attended the opening of Chuck Close: Selected Paintings and Tapestries 2005-2009 at PaceWildenstein in New York.
The opening marked the first public exhibition of four new tapestry editions by Close: Brad (actor Brad Pitt), Ellen (artist Ellen Gallagher), a new frontal self-portrait, and the nearly 20-foot-long Self-portrait/Five Part which includes five views of Close.
The exhibition at PaceWildenstein (534 West 25th St, NYC) runs from May 1 - June 20, 2009. See more Chuck Close tapestries at Magnolia's web site.
