de Young Museum—Amish Abstractions. The Amish faith embodies the principles of simplicity, humility, discipline, and community, but their quilts are anything but humble. This exhibition features 48 full-sized quilts, made from the 1880s-1930s. November 14—June 6, 2010.
Museum of Craft and Design—Michael Peterson: Evolution/Revolution. Peterson produces elegant, abstract sculptures made from local woods. This exhibit traces his artistic development over the past 20 years. Through January 3, 2010.
San Jose Museum of Art—Chuck Close Prints. Painter Chuck Close was particularly concerned that his prints not simply be smaller versions of his paintings, but rather that printmaking open up an additional arena of investigation that would require him to engage in image-making in completely different ways. Through January 10, 2010.
