Black and White Photo Show at ICON In June and July ICON Gallery celebrates the beauty of Black and White Photography and the many practitioners of the art form in Fairfield and Iowa. The show consists of over 100 works by 30 photographers. Rather than the usual severe minimalist presentation of photos, all the same size, all in a row, this show is a large eclectic mix of styles and subjects, hung in a variety of ways. The artists range from local talents to top regional professionals. “I love black and white,” says curator and ICON Director Bill Teeple. “ There is something simple and poetic about it. Since it’s not a full color copy of reality, it, by nature, has to be a reduction down to an essential feeling – a poem. I like graphite drawings, Japanese and Chinese ink painting, film noir and black and white photos. I’m hoping, with this show, to draw others into my love of t his art form.” “I’ve borrowed work from galleries in Des Moines and from artists in Iowa City, says Teeple, “but I’m amazed at how much incredible black and white work is being done right here in Fairfield.” Opening Night…  Current Exhibit / 30 Photographers with 30 Photos…
