Guild Hall is a center for the arts, entertainment, and education for the community. Its primary focus is to inform, and enrich our diverse audiences by presenting programs of the highest quality in the visual and performing arts, to collaborate with artists of eastern Long Island, to foster the artistic spirit and to provide a meeting place for the entire community.
In our showcase exhibition of the summer season, we will present recent paintings, prints and tapestries by Chuck Close. Close is noted for his highly inventive techniques used to paint the human face, aiming to paint people the way a camera would see them. Chuck Close was the recipient of the 1995 Guild Hall Academy of the Arts Lifetime Achievement Award Winner in the Visual Arts. He had a one person exhibition of his large-scale Polaroid photographs, Chuck Close Up Close at Guild Hall in 1991. He has been a part-time resident of the East End for more than 40 years.
