Fairfield's ICON Gallery has launched its art season this month with a major exhibit of the work of Jim Shrosbree, chair of the Department of Art and Design at Maharishi University of Management and a nationally known sculptor.
The show is titled 0 (suspension). Also showing will be The Restaurant, designed by Jim Shrosbree for Peace Project Ceramics. The show continues through October 20.
Mr. Shrosbree is exhibiting a full range of his more recent work—drawings, sculpture, and functional ware. He has been honored with numerous solo shows throughout the U.S. in recent years and was selected as one of seven 'Iowa Masters' who were featured on an Iowa Public Television special this summer.
'Jim's work really appeals to my sensibilities,' says ICON Artistic Director Bill Teeple. 'He makes simple material things sacred. He enlivens space and awareness. He truly is a master artist. ICON Gallery is honored to have him share his recent work with us. Jim's art is a perfect match for our new art space.'
'My work is a means to realize in matter the feelings and experiences that are alive in my own inner awareness,' Mr. Shrosbree says. 'I find the process of creation as a means of expression which does not necessarily start or end but exists as a continuum, percolating through different stages of development in life. I hope that references and associations in my work will not hold the mind to a particular emotion or thought but, rather, allow the memory to resonate with and enliven a familiar silent place of discovery deep inside the mind. I want the work to be a catalyst for the experience of pure relationship which is so magically potent that it yields new fruit at each moment.'
