Chuck Close was born and raised in Snohomish County. He attended Everett High School and Everett Community College before attending the University of Washington. “This is the first time I have had a major exhibition of my work in Snohomish County or Everett,” Close said of the exhibit, “I feel honored, and it’s great for people who knew me when to see what I am doing now. It is particularly gratifying to know that my work will be shown where I grew up.
