Chuck Close at Nevada Museum of Art

Five tapestry portraits by Chuck Close, published by Magnolia Editions, are included in "Faces: Chuck Close & Contemporary Portraiture," currently on view at the Nevada Museum of Art.

Donald Farnsworth took this picture of the tapestries hanging on an unusual wall at the NMA: the wall is diagonally slanted, making for an interesting dynamic between the work and the room:

Reviews of "Faces" can be found at Reno News & Review and the Reno Gazette Journal.

The exhibition, which is curated from the Doris and Donald Fisher collection, includes work by Gerhard Richter, Jim Dine, Cindy Sherman, and Andy Warhol as well as paintings and a hologram by Close. The exhibition runs through October 18; for more information, please visit
