My husband, Charles Tarlton, and I moved to Northampton in December 2014 from San Francisco. Hope and Feathers Gallery in Amherst, Massachusetts showed my work in a two-person exhibition, "Shaking Loose: Rhys Davies and Ann Knickerbocker," during October, 2017, and the two of us painted live in the gallery for 8-10 hours each week. My paintings and prints, "For Emily, Whenever I May Find Her," were exhibited at the Emily Dickinson Museum during the Amherst (Massachusetts) Art Walk on September 1, 2016. "Collaboration" (my husband's three poems about my three paintings) appeared in three consecutive issues of The Ekphrastic Review, beginning on June 26, 2016.My workspace appeared in "A View from the Easel": hyper allergic.com/277152/a-view-from-the-easel-82. I am a former member of Gallery One CT, Gallery A3 in Amherst and Gallery Route One in Point Reyes Station, California. My paintings have been accepted into juried shows at the Essex Art association, where I am an elected artist, and in the 105th Juried Annual of The Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts in June and July, 2016. I had a solo show at Cider House Media in Easthampton in September 2015 and was selected for the Northampton Biennial in October, 2015.
This painting, "Thursday Night Thunderstorm," is part of the four-painting group shown at Hope and Feathers and is the culmination of a set of color and shape abstract studies.
