"Baton Rouge" by Katie Knoeringer
Painting by Katie KnoeringerAnimals are magic. This idea has brought me to research folklore and folktales as well as to seek out animal presences in my daily life.  Whether hiking in the mountains of Wyoming, going to the zoo, or being with my cats, my awe of our human counterparts is unwavering.
I am interested in the idea of animals as innocent observers and as active protagonists. 

I sustain my studio practice by drawing on location in and around my neighborhood, a habit I began whole heartedly while living in Hammond, LA and documenting the personalities of the different houses. The playful imagery in my work is the direct result of a rich inner life and a thriving passion for reading fiction.  The power of day dreams is the thread running through my paintings and drawings.

Katie Knoeringer lives and works in Fishtown, Philadelphia.  She is from NJ and studied art in Pennsylvania and Louisiana.  She lives with her new husband Michael Secor and two cats.  Katie’s work can be found at and Brick and Mortar Gallery in Easton, PA this October.

Storytelling Through Cut Paper
with reCreate Featured Artist Katie Knoeringer
Sunday, September 20th


At this reCreate workshop, participants will tell a story in one image by layering paper cuttings, textures, transferred drawings, photos, and paper shapes. Bring your story ideas with you! Participants will learn to transfer photographic and drawn images into cut paper shapes. We will cut and layer various colored and textured paper to create images. Each participant will leave with one image that is representative of a story they’d like to tell.

The Resource Exchange will provide basic collage materials including:
