Fairfield Collects at ICON Features Works from Private Art Collections A new, collaborative show opens Friday, Sept. 6 at ICON Gallery. Fairfield Collects brings together top- notch works of art from the personal collections of the Fairfield community. “I think everyone will be pleasantly surprised to see the high quality of paintings, prints, and sculptures in this show,” says ICON Director, Bill Teeple. “We’re grateful for the terrific response from the many generous people who are loaning their cherished pieces.” The art genres on display include realism, luminism, impressionism, modernism, surrealism, and abstract expressionism, ranging from the mid-1800s to the present, in all types of media. Artists from the U.S., France, Italy, Russia, China, Japan, India, Thailand, and Australia, highlight the show’s international flavor. “In a small town like Fairfield,” says Teeple, “it’s quite remarkable to find original works by such well- known artists as Andy Warhol, Salvador Dali, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Gustave Courbet, and Eugene Boudin. But here they are, alongside many other accomplished artists. The stylistic diversity makes for an eclectic show that all can enjoy.” Already there are plans to turn this idea into an ICON tradition. The first Fairfield Collects continues through October 19, 2019.
