The Somerset County Office on Aging and Disability Services invites active adults age 60 and above to participate in an ‘Art of the Masters’ program, which will focus on the life and works of American artist Chuck Close. The program will be held at Montgomery Senior Center located at 356 Skillman Road in Montgomery on Friday, August 24 at 10:30 a.m.
Chuck Close has been a leading figure in contemporary art since the early 1970s. He is best known for his large scale ‘photorealist’ portraits that are composed of tiny airbrush bursts, thumbprints, or looping multi-color brushstrokes. Close’s process of recreating the human face has radically changed the definition of modern portraiture.
After the presentation, sixteen participants will have an opportunity to finger paint in the technique of Chuck Close.
