Ann Knickerbocker

My husband, Charles Tarlton, and I moved to Old Saybrook, Connecticut from Northampton, Massachusetts in February 2020. I am a member of Gallery One CT, the Lyme Art Association, and I am an elected artist in the Essex Art Association, where I show each summer. Gallery One CT has two shows in Winter 2022-3 and I have one painting in each. The Space Gallery in Chester, Connecticut is hosting “Light Shifts” through December 30, 2022 and the LaGrua Center in Stonington Borough, Connecticut, is showing our work in “Winterlude” in January and February of 2023. As a winner of the Gantner Award, I was given a solo show, “Patina,” in August 2022, in the back gallery of the Essex Art Association. My painting "As If It Were A Day In L.A." was selected for "Expanded Visions," the Lyme Art Association show (April through June 2022). My paintings were selected for the juried Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts Annual in 2016 and included in the CAFA+ Members Virtual Show of 2021. My work was chosen for the Northampton Biennials of 2019 and 2015. I have been in two group shows at the #LOCAL Gallery in Easthampton, Massachusetts, most recently in an exhibition called "Art of the Word." 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. I am a former member of Gallery A3 in Amherst and Gallery Route One in Point Reyes Station, California. Cider House Media in Easthampton, Massachusetts, gave me a solo show in September 2015. My first solo show was in the Museum of Fine Arts in Valletta, Malta, in 1990, and I have painted steadily since 1988.

This is from a new series with neon and jewel tones, with an overlay of collaged drawings on brown paper over the abstract on wood. This one is called “Down in the Depths of the 90th Floor” (thanks to Cole Porter).
