2012 marks a milestone for Crown Point Press—it’s celebrating its 50th anniversary. Chuck Close made his first print there a decade later. This exhibition traces the evolution of the artist’s printmaking style at CPP and the exposed grid design that became his signature.

|Event Description||This exhibition in the Anderson gallery shows the development of Close’s printmaking style at Crown Point Press. Close’s style evolved from the tonal process akin to his photorealist tendencies, to linear mark-making and exposition of the transfer grid that became the hallmark of his painting in the 1970s.|
