Irene Murphy Monochrome Flower Paintings at ICON An exhibit of monochrome flower paintings by Fairfield artist Irene Murphy’s will open on Friday, November 1st at ICON Gallery, 6:30 to 9:30. The show will continue through December 20th. A reception and exhibit walk-through will take place on Thursday, November 6, 7:30 to 9:30. The 25 paintings in the series were created in 2017 and 2018. They are painted in a consistent oil painting style that she developed during that period in a range of blacks, grays and whites. “I have worked with Irene for many years,” says Irene’s mentor and ICON Director, Bill Teeple. “She focused on flowers as her subject early on and has stuck with it. I was really pleased when she developed this particular look and I have wanted to share this work with the Fairfield audience at ICON ever since she completed the series.”
