Starting in September ICON Gallery launches a two part four-month exhibit titled Bill’s Soup. In the early days of Gallery 51 East and ICON Gallery, founder and director Bill Teeple mounted shows called Bill’s Soup, a “bouillabaisse” of artwork selected by Bill from the ocean of work produced by our Fairfield art community. When the gallery moved onto the Square, the Bill’s Soup tradition was superseded by many other unique shows. Now, after a decade Bill is reviving the tradition. Bill says, “I want to be able to show something by each of the committed Fairfield artists, but there are so many artists and so much work it will probably take many Bill’s Soup shows to present everyone. Part One will feature the creativity of our own ICON Board. Part Two will present work by over twenty artists.”One of the significant features of the Bill’s Soup shows is the emphasis on individual works that catch Bill’s eye. It’s not to share the most typical work of an artist.It might very well be something different from the corner of an artist’s studio that just jumped out at Bill.ICON Board members artists featured in Part One are Allen Cobb, David Fleming,Robert Hoerlein, Joanie McGinnis, Mike Rutherford, Cris Soth, Janet Teeple and Bill Teeple,More Show Images . . .
