My husband, Charles Tarlton, and I moved to Northampton in December 2014 from San Francisco. I am a member of Gallery One Connecticut, and we will be holding a group exhibition at the Zahn Gallery in the Shoreline Medical Center in Westbrook, Connecticut. Our opening is Thursday, November 3, 2016, from 6-8:00 pm.
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. I am a former member of 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 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, "Checks," is part of an experimental series, stemming from cataract surgery, when I was "resting" for days and reflected, a lot. I no longer need the patch or glasses; here is my attempt at picturing the new light, the word "dappled."
