Emily Earl Hixon aka Emily H. Sturkie aka Emily Hixon Taplin (1919-2003) was a prolific painter and printmaker working in both non-objective and Pop Art idioms. In 1974, she helped start the artist-run Amos Eno Gallery in New York City’s Soho District (it recently relocated to Bushwick, Brooklyn). She was an educator and an art director at Rutgers University. Her studio was on Shelter Island, a short ferry ride from our design shop here in Greenport, NY on the North Fork.
