Janet Towbin and Chuck Close

Janet Towbin's exhibition opened at Modified last night.  I haven't been there since they remodeled.  It's a really nice space now.  Janet's amazing drawings from her "Meditations on a Black Stone" series create their own space in which you can linger.   Delicate and powerful.  Mesmerizing. 

Enjoyed the free Thursday night entry to SMoCA's exhibition of the Chuck Close prints.  What a remarkable technician he is; a planner extraordinaire.   I loved seeing the linoleum from which he printed and the woodcuts with the multiple colors remaining, showing that he printed several colors in one pull.  I like to see the process almost as much as the result.
