To honor the life of Jeri Felix, ICON Gallery presents a retrospective exhibition of her work. Jeri Passed away on January 27th. The exhibit opens on the 1st Friday Art Walk, March 4th and continues through April 16th. “Jeri was one of Fairfield’s most prolific and creative artists,” says ICON Director Bill Teeple. “Her loss has been a shock to us all. We all wanted to do something to honor her creative life. I rearranged the ICON schedule to have an exhibit right away. This show will allow us to realize that Jeri lives on through the gifts of colorful beauty she left for us all.”My desire is to manifest something new in the world. A fresh unique being not necessarily related to anyone or anything that came before it. Art making is a birthing process. The newborn, the work of art, is an entity to be with and get to know—one to enjoy and learn from. Great art breathes. It's alive and is forever giving. There's nothing more fulfilling than creating something from nothing. My desire is to know, to understand and to experience the "becoming" process. This happens when I paint. This is why I make art—for the pure joy of it. Painting makes life make sense. As a visual artist, I'm most excited by color and I Iove paint. — Jeri Felix Artist Statements and More Show Images . . .http://www.zhibit.org/profile/jmfelixhttp://jfabstractacrylics.blogspot.com/
