ICON presents the work of two significant second generation Fairfield artists. Gyan Shrosbree is the daughter of Jim Shrosbree, one of the founders of the MIU Art School. Joey Fauerso is the daughter of well known musician Paul Fauerso. Both young artists have established careers in the greater art world. The show titled “The Ladies Association” will open on the 1st Friday Art Walk, March 6th, and run through the Art Walk in May. “I’ve wanted to do a show with some younger artists for a very long time,” says ICON Director Bill Teeple. “The first artist that came to mind was Gyan a very accomplished artist who now is teaching at MUM. It is our good fortune to have such a brilliant young artist back in our community. The first artist to come into her mind for a two person show was Joey Fauerso, a former Fairfielder who has made a name for herself in the Texas art world, both as an artist and a gallerist.” Gyan Shrosbree gained her BFA at the Kansas City Art Institute and her MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art, one of the most prestigious arts schools in the country. She was on the faculty of St. Phillips College in San Antonio from 2009 to 2011. She is currently Assistant Professor of Art in the School of Fine Art at MUM. She has had solo shows in Los Angeles, New York, Texas and Iowa and has been included in numerous group shows. Joey Fauerso is an artist and Associate Professor of Art at Texas State University. Her paintings and videos have been exhibited nationally and internationally with recent shows at the Centro Cultural Border in Mexico City, and the David Shelton Gallery in Houston Texas. Fauerso has been the recipient of numerous grants and residencies and is currently participating in the Open Sessions program at The Drawing Center in New York City. She lives in San Antonio with her husband Riley, and their sons Brendan and Paul. “Both of these artists are doing unique and compelling work,” says Teeple. “Gyan’s art is, all at once, flashy, blingy and spatially complex serious art. It grabs your attention and then takes you on a visual trip. Joey’s video work combines the physicality of the human body with the psychological reality. The 2D work she presents with the videos freezes in time a physical/psychological moment.” More Show Images & Artist Statements.... Interview with Gyan at:
