Chuck Close at Guild Hall

Guild Hall in East Hampton is currently showing a retrospective of the work of one of my favorite contemporary artists, Chuck Close, that is well worth a visit before it closes October 14.  The show has a variety of work including paintings, photographs, prints, and some amazing tapestries.
 I was on hand for the Chuck's talk at the opening which is embedded below. He gave some great support to the arts in education as well as some terrific insight on his work and it's growth.
