Best Show For Art Wonks 

Chuck Close at the Frist Center

The Frist's exhibit on Chuck Close's prints was a bit challenging for a non-artist, crammed with lots of information to wade through on every one of the many printing techniques Close has used. And he went way beyond printing, trying out every imaginable method of producing artistic multiples with ink or paint, often done to the extreme—for instance, silk screens built up from 126 colors. The amount of calculation and raw artistic chops required to create these works is mind-boggling. If you took the time to get into the details, the impact was overwhelming. DAVID MADDOX
